“Everything was just a little extra”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

4 euro for half a lager ( warm ) is about £7 a pint. beware of handing your cards over. they have NO limits on the cash point and can take money without asking as handing a card over in malta implies access to you account. You have bee warned
