Our first port of call on our return visit to Malta and we weren't disappointed. We ate here several nights and everything was consistent. The staff work really hard and are so friendly and welcoming. It was busy every night but you never feel under pressure to make way for the next customer.
The food isn't gourmet but is good. If you like olives while waiting for your starter, ask for some as they're not on the menu but are delicious.
Agree with other reviewers that it is a shame about people smoking, but that appears to be the same in all the restaurants.
Looking forward to our next visit to Malta and we'll definitely be eating here again.
