“So Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I've tried, but there is no better restaurant in the Bugibba area. Okay the service might be a bit slow, but they're busy, and you're on holiday .. chill and have a drink.
Local delicacies were excellent, steak was well cooked and good value, local wines were of the best quality.
This is a superb restaurant, deserves a better status in an area full of some very average tourist places.
Four hungry men dined here very well for Euro 100, inc top local wine.
Go. you won't be disappointed .......

“Top quality steak, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed the meal we had at Ta Pawla yesterday evening. We were shown to a nice cosy table for two toward the rear of the restaurant. From the menu I chose fillet steak with mushroom sauce, and my wife chicken breast also with mushroom sauce. We both opted for roast potatoes and vegetables. The meal was delicious - I always ask for my steak medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. Service was good and waiting time was good - we don't like to be hurried but also wouldn't want to be left waiting for ages and they got it just right. Wine list was good and prices were reasonable. The ambience was nice and I would recommend the restaurant for a romantic meal or a small family gathering / group of friends. We got into conversation with some Maltese couples sitting close by and they had also enjoyed their food. Friendly place, good food, reasonable prices - perfect!

“Great Food & Service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

I visited this restaurant situated opposite San Antonio Hotel it is a family run restaurant where one can go there and enjoy a good meal at a good value for money with family and friends. N.B Pizza here is very good worth a try for sure. I highly recommend this restaurant. Keep it up.
