“Worth seeking out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The Overflow had been recommended to us and we were glad we hunted it out. The food was well cooked, the meal we had (choices from set menu) was good value, and the service was friendly and efficient.

“Enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We visited twice and both times had a lovely meal. Local wines were cheap and tasty. They brought some tasters while we chose our food, everything was well cooked and presented. I had freshly caught sea bass which was delicious.

The staff were friendly and attentive, bringing a free drink to finish with - actually I left it but a nice touch.

Thank you for taking time to review us.We are pleased you enjoyed both evenings dining with us.We try to price both the food and wines at a competitive price ,not too expensive for diners.Local wines are very popular and of good quality.Freshly caught fish is very popular and tasty! We try to provide a good service to accompany the good food so you can relax and enjoy your night with us.The drink we offer at the end of the meal free of charge ,is typical of the Maltese Islands and a good digestif! Thank you for dining with us!

“Rustic chilled out place gorgeous food great staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Meant to write this ages ago The Overflow is a lovely place the food was of excellent quality the staff lovely and friendly and I found it nice that the staff could have a little chat rather than just put the plates of food on the table and dissappear. Myself and my girlfriend ate hear 5 times out of our 12 day holiday in Malta so impressed were we after our first meal.Sure we had meals at other places around the resort but found nothing as good as the Overflow dont get me wrong we had nice food elsewhere and some good nights but overall this place was our favourite the food the staff the restaurant was just brilliant George the Scottish waiter was knowledgeable about the local area and very helpful and told us places to visit.Every meal we had was a painting on a plate and tasted exceptional we were never dissapointed with anything we had. We will definitely eat here again.Thanks Overflow you were all lovely see you all again soon:-) Dean and Yvonne Doncaster/Yorkshire x
