“Good place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Meat of good standard quality, prices corrects. Good service. We choose 2 cheeseburgers, my wife didn't like the steak but i find it correct. Good fries, low prices for wines and beverages.

“Decent breakfast but the flies ruined the experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Had read the reviews on Tripadvisor so decided to try the breakfast. We eat about 11am on a wet morning. There was only a table of 4 and a table of 2 in the restaurant. We decided to sit right inside as the table of 4 were smoking and anywhere else outside (under the awning) would of been too close to them. We are all non smokers. We all ordered the Farmhouse breakfast which comprised of 2 fried eggs, 2 sausages, baked beans 1 hash brown 2 rashers of bacon, half a tomato and toast. When we visited they did not have enough hash browns to go around so they offered a substitute which my son took as another sausage. Whilst waiting we were plagued by flies, which continued as a theme throughout the meal.
The food itself was nice but the constant harassment of the flies made us rush our meal. Waving your hands around whilst trying to eat is difficult!

Equally, despite sitting as far away from the smokers as possible we could still smell their disgusting habit!

The service was OK.

The flies spoilt the experience for us which is why I'm marking this restaurant down.

Flexible choice. Best coffee on the island. Service with a smile. Good host.
Lovely rabbit and octopus stew. Good to catch up on gossip and relax.

“Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We commented on how good the coffee was and the owner came out. His enthusiasm and knowledge was remarkable. This was the best coffee we had in Mellieha and probably in Malta.
