The view is nice but the food was god awful. My "raw shrimp cocktail" was obviously not at all fresh but frozen, and tasted horrible. I still feel a bit sick after taking a bite. I am a big fan of prawn carpaccio and various...raw dishes, however they're supposed to be fresh and high quality! Those shrimps were clearly just thawed and tossed on top of iceberg lettuce. Seems like the chef tried to copy good restaurants but has no experience nor skill to do so. The food was bland and poorly prepared with low quality ingredients. Undercooked pasta, dry lemons frozen seafood... Would absolutely advise to avoid this place.More

Late afternoon, ordered just a plate of chips and some drinks. Chips arrived. No napkins, salt, sauce, forks, etc. Just a plate of chips plonked in the middle of the table. Asked the server for condiments, etc. Brought a packet of tomato ketchup but no...napkins, nothing else. Asked him for forks, napkins, etc. Finally brought them and told us most people didn't ask for anything. Then asked for salt. Nothing. Asked again, nothing. Finally got it myself. Fifteen minutes later some spotty youth arrived with a pale of chlorinated water which he began grabbing handfuls of and flinging onto the floor between tables. Then he started mopping around the diners. It might have a decent view, but the serving staff appear to have as much training and nous as a tin of paint. Do not bother with this place if you are after a pleasant meal in a pleasant ambience served by pleasant staff.More

Unfriendly waiters without any sympathy. The meals were inedible. The view is great, but any other restaurant in this corner is better !

We were waiting 10 minutes for table, than 15 minutes for order, but no one care. We left the restaurant, meet two waiters and they just do not care... worst services in Malta ever..

The food was pretty awful. The tortellini was from a packet, not even a fresh packet. And the burger meat was hard on the sides, almost like cardboard. The waiter was very absent, took our order wrong 3 times. nobody says hello, how's the food...or even a sorry when we sent back the burger. The view is beautiful obviously but I don't think it's worth it.More

We was a big group, they are so careful about social distance. Was sat on first floor there is quite nice view. We all had starters and main, me my self took a fillet steak which was to die for cooked to perfection, everything came...in time no delay not even one dish went back which that means good organisation. For sure we will be back.More
