A very good restaurang doesen't look much maybe but the food and the staff are awesome,and resonable prices. Their pizza's is enough for two and the pasta dish with big prawns are so good.

My boyfriend and I visited here on a few occasions over the course of our two week stay in Porto Azzuro hotel in Malta. It's a 2 minute walk down the hill from our hotel, offers wifi, a great range of food and quirky drinks - and also cocktails! You have a pleasant view across from you too of the... More

Delicious Italian dishes cooked by someone who knows what they are doing. Great prices and al fresco dining - view of the bay while eating. You just have to phase out the traffic.

Lovely wee Cafe in Xemxija. I've been her a few times on holiday and couldn't believe I had never been here before I started coming. Great and friendly staff. Food is all fresh and really, really yummy. Big portions and a very fair price. One of my favorite places to eat here in Malta. Thanks again everyone. Smudge xx

My family and I went here on our last day in Malta as it is a few seconds away from the hotel we stayed in (Porto Azzurro). The service was excellent throughout our whole meal with our waiter being extremely friendly. The food is decently priced and tasty although can be a bit greasy. All the seating is outside so...
