“Excellent selection of Meat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The restaurant is well decorated, clean & professional. The service was satisfactory and the quality of the meat was excellent. The setting of the restaurant is very nice with an excellent view over the bay. If you like meat, this is definitely a good choice.

“Everything's great ...at a price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

I've often said I'd rather pay through the nose to enjoy a good piece of meat than take my chances and end up disappointed with rubbish, so finding this place is something of a dream come true for me.

As soon a you walk in and up the stairs you get a sense that these people are serious about their meat. The decor and styling is just lovely and they went to great lengths to make the dining experience a good one. The seating is comfortable, the lighting, the cutlery and crockery, a great deal of attention has been given to everything, and the view of the bay is just awesome. Even the faucet in the bathroom is one of those fancy LED light ones. Bread is not simply put on the table, it's delivered in a brown paper bag. It's these little things that all come together to give you a sense of a truly special place. Plus the service was impeccable, friendly and efficient.

We started with a selection of Italian antipasti which were all scrumptious and very yummy, then followed with the most juicy juicy steaks. At first I was daunted by the prospect of downing 400g of beef at one go but it was so tender and moist I gobbled the entire thing in no time at all. Desserts were just as great with a good selection of Italian treats.

At about 60 euro per person (with ample wine), this place is not cheap, but you don't go here if you're looking for a bargain. Having said that, if you want to enjoy some of the best meat you ever experienced in your entire life, this is the place to go to.

“Best steak ever eaten.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I went there twice during my week in Malta. The fillet steak was delicious. The service was excellent. Right from the gorgeous and elegant lady who greeted us downstairs, right through to the lady who served us. It was expensive, but you get what you pay for. The same dish in London would probably cost at least twice the price. I would go to Malta again just time eat here.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

If you like steak this place is a must, we had sirloin and a fillet and were the best steak we have had. This place is NOT overpriced, you pay for quality and quality is what you get. Ignore the bad reviews this place is a must. We went on our first night and again on our last. Our favourite restaurant by far.
