“Poor!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We visited the restaurant with my father and our two young children. My father had eaten here previously and enjoyed it. Sadly we were completely at a loss as to why this restaurant had been recommended and my father left the restaurant embarrassed for having made the recommendation. The food was terrible. We all had fish - and all of it was undercooked. We were the only people in the restaurant at the time (early evening) and couldn't help but feel that we were an inconvenience at the time. A shame really as the location is good and the restaurant must be capable of delivering reasonable food (based on previous experience). But based on our experience we won't be rushing back.

“Excellent dinner overlooking the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We spent a lovely evening in this restaurant. We chose to eat fish and it was really excellent. Very good quality and in a good quantity. The restaurant is in a lovely position and from the terrace you have the sea just under you!

“Great view, but don't touch the food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Really, really disappointed. We'd been out all day, running late and needed food in Mellieha. We wen't exactly dressed for a posh dinner, so we decided to try a beach side place. 8.30pm saturday night. The first place we tried at the end of the beach had an hour wait for a table, so we walked 100m to point break. It was ominously half full, but we we so hungry we decided to give it a go anyway. The view from this place overlooking Mellieha Bay is breathtaking. Could stare at it all night. The food however is terrible. The lasagne looks like it came out of a packet and had some mince thrown over it before serving. One of our party who ate this threw up almost immediately outside afterwards. The chicken hawaieen style was inedible. Seeing starving 18 year olds refusing to eat it says it all. The potatoes were also inedible, but my mussels and chips were OK. Ketchup served in a sachet. The service was also terrible. 3 people working covering kitchen and front of house on saturday night. I had to almost go into the kitchen to pay, so i could take the family home and get away from this place. Did not like what I saw. I don't tend to give bad reviews, can't be bothered, but really feel the need to warn people about this place. Maybe they were having a bad day, mabe the chef was sick. Great place for a bottle of coke, but that's all.

“Excellent Food at very reasonable prices, along with the best view!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The best seats are outside on the terrace as this restaurant has the best 180 degree view of Mellieha and Ghadira Bay. The food is excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. The service was great and our waiter was very helpful and sociable!

“Lovely food but lots of beasties around in the evening!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stopped to have a meal in the evening and initially sat outside where we ordered our food and drinks. As we waited, insects started to become a problem and we had to retreat inside where there were more of them but, thankfully, they remained on the walls, attracted to the lights. The food was superb, served by a very pleasant (and handsome!) gentleman and the views across the bay from here, as the sun went down, were beautiful.

Might be a good idea to burn citronella candles or use something else that might deter the 'wildlife'!
