We've been to this place before but this time the food was more delicious than usual. We were a group of five former colleagues - a reunion - and wanted somewhere a little informal but with a great atmosphere and good food. This restaurant fit the bill. Located across the harbour from Valletta, it has excellent views over the flood-lit... More

We went with a group of friends, 7 in total. We decided not to have a starter. The main course took over an hour to arrive and was OK, but not particularly good. When we finished we asked for the empty dishes to be removed - and waited, some of them went, some of them did not. I had the... More

Tried yet again hoping that the last time was a one off bad day....... again blooming awful and expensive for what you get. However one of our group had a pizza and that was good , but the the rest of us who had fish, was certainly not fresh from the day, was fishy and any Maltese person knows that... More

Lovely setting overlooking our charming capital. Service was impeccable and food equally delicious. I had pizza and my friends had different dishes. We all enjoyed our meal. One thing....its a little bit pricey, wouldn't expect otherwise from a restaurant located at The Point.

The salads and fries you have pay extra and they are warmed not cooked fresh salads it was old and squashed not worth the money because for that money u can go in a 5 star restaurant.

My second favourite restaurant found in Malta (favourite being its sister restaurant, Chophouse next door). Immaculate decor and setting with the best view of Valletta and Sliema Harbour you will get at any price. A bit expensive but you are paying for quality and location. Well worth a visit and I recommend their ribeye and pizzas.

In the last of our Kitchen Concepts series, we left it 4 years until deciding to visit Cucina Del Sole in Tigne Point. By the way it's a wonderfully decorated building with real Italian/Sicilian authenticity. We ordered our food and drinks and when the water came it was warm, not served with lemon as you might expect for sparkling water... More

Visited the restaurant with the family (two young kids) to celebrate the birthday of my wife, and we had a very enjoyable evening. Attentive service and friendly service. Food was excellent throughout from starters (vg foccaia caprese and calamri fritti) mains (porchetta and ribeye) and desserts. Wil come again

The service is good but recommended only for pizza. The rest of the menu can be discarded. Pasta dishes to small for a medium person, meet or fish too expensive for the quality one would expect for the price. A pity seeing the service deteriorating by time. Can't imagine entering a restaurant having the seat cushion torn by wear and... More
