“Best in Malta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Possibly the best restaurant I have experienced in Malta. Sunday Lunch is to be highly recommended with personalised service, fresh ingredients and intimate atmosphere. Will continue to return to this quality restaurant.

“Just Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We truly had a great experience dining here, service was very good and professional.
The wine list had a good choice and the menu was basic but had what we were looking for.Can do with a nice folder though. The starters, soup and the foie gras were resented nicely and the soup came out served from a nice ceramic pot. For mains we both had the beef and the cooling grade was just perfect. Although we were last to leave, no one rushed us, and that is something which most restaurants are lacking in...thanks and well done

“Very good but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

We visited this place round a month ago... nice ambiance, excellent service and the food is good and well presented and staff are very welcoming... the menu is not vast though and it is somewhat priced on the high side I must say!

“Try it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Not heard anything but good things about this place, so we decided to go. Its out of the way in terms of location, it is not somewhere you could wander and find, more someplace you will plan to go to. I recommend it for a special occasion as it is not cheap. Nor is it bad value for money though. The food is very good. The service is good. The wine selection good.
I had some salt baked fish and it was lovely. Think their menu could be just a bit more varied, particularly dessert as i cannot eat raw egg and both the fondant (obviously) and the tart (not so obviously) were gooey and so raw egg. My dessert although good had a slight taste of mould from the pastry base and i can only assume this was made ahead in which case............not sure.......disappointing element from a baker such as myself. However these things happen and i did not complain and although i mention it here I can accept it is probably a one off as the other people i was with had no problems. We all agreed given the price the selection of sides- potatoes and veg for four of us was a bit stingy. All in all a good experience though and I will be back.
