4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Service was good, outdoor tables, ok price for the very centre of Valletta in the heart of the tourist area.

“Our worst meal in Valletta”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We used this establishment several times last year and had some good meals there, so we thought we would use it again this year. On this occasion we both opted for the Spaghetti Bolognese and it turned out to be the worst meal that we have had in many years. It was awful, so we never went back (and never will again when we return to the city).

“Lousy place in a pleasant location”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This café enjoys a lovely position in a little square along Valletta's main street, but this ends the list of its virtues. It has dirty tables and serves bad food. I had a beef wrap whose taste was undefiniable to say the least, and I had a very hard time to digest it. The waitress who attended me spoke almost no English. Nobody cares of the pidgeons coming to feed on the leftovers on the nearby tables.

“No service, no smile”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We stopped at this cafe to hide from the midday sun and the service was non existent to the point we had to ask to order drinks. However we were told to wait a minute whilst the waitress finished gossiping with a friend. When ordering the drink we were told it wasn't available so I picked another only to find I wished I'd gone for the water. We were grateful to get back in the midday sun.

“a lunchtime stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

fairly good service in a nice central location in Valletta, the chicken salad was very nice, though didn't really consist of what was on the menu!
Lunch for two with drinks for under 20 euro.
functional and acceptable but not especially memorable.
