Location and contact

Mediterranean/Grill with spectacular sea views, al fresco or indoors - during summer part of the area is converted into a lido with deckchairs and cocktail bar. During the einters we also serve al fresco but we also have indoor availability. We specialize in succulent Mediterranean dishes and fresh fish, while we also have good sized tasty steaks. The area is big enough to organize special events like staff parties and special functions by the water's edge. Booking is always a must at this unique spot in Marsalforn.
