Food was excellent: bouillabesse (fish), fish, vegetables, french fries,... Staff was very polite. Everybody wanted to lunch here: plenty of people, terrible noise, rather reduced place to sit and enjou your meal. Rusted salt cans on the table. Too many flies.

Waited over an hour for a pizza and when it finally came it looked awful. It was meant to have bbq sauce all over and there was 1 whole slice black like tar. Just been rushed. Waiters speaking in a foreign language (not Maltese). Waiters...More

The restaurant was about 1/4 full so having to remind them about our drinks order wasn't a great start. Neither was the fact that the menu is pages long covering burgers, pizza, pasta, local dishes et al!!! We just ordered 2 pasta dishes, spaghetti rabbit...More

Went to the place before, and overall the food was good, but not this time. It was a Monday and we got a large portion of Monday blues. Ordered fritto misto, ribs and tagliatelle. The side dishes were generous but lacking in their presentation and...More
