“Sophisticated, relaxed and great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

The hotel is not as laid back as some, but they make you very welcome. The second time we went we dressed a little more appropriate. The food is lovely, the service impeccable and the environment is just brilliant.

“Great quality and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Arches must be one of the best choices in Malta for a special evening. Quality of the food is excellent; service is perfect. Price-level is in the higher range, but you will get value-for-money.

“Excellent Food and Great Customer Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is a high quality restaurant, beautifully presented food with a stylish tradtional feel. The staff are very good, the food is relatively expensive fr the area but worth it and the wine list is probably the best in the village. Also vey good with half portions for our kids. Definitely one to try!
