This is a family run place in a quiet corner near the seafront. Service was efficient and attentive The menu has Maltese, Mediterranean, Italian and some international dishes. The ambience is traditional- perhaps similar to a Greek taverna. There are some seats facing the seafront which allow for al fresco dining which is quite nice. I tried traditional Maltese dishes(...

We wanted authentic Maltese food and we had this recommended to us by a Maltese tour guide. We booked and from the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. There were 3 types of set menus and one was for vegetarians that I chose. There were all other options on the menu to choose from also. The food was... More

This is a beautifully positioned corner restaurant overlooking the Sliema promenade - it has its outdoor Terrance dotted with red and white table clothes which add to the wonderful ambience. The bruschetta was tasty and fresh to start followed by a feast of mixed seafood - the service and wine (Ulysses Chardonnay - from Gozo) was impeccable.

This is a small family run restaurant and is typically Maltese. The menu is quite extensive, varied and very reasonably priced. The food is excellent as is the Maltese wine. The staff are friendly, helpful and very polite. If in the area, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Meal was perfect from start to finish. Homemade ricotta ravioli went down a treat. Star of the show was the rabbit pasta. One of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. Braised beef and bragioli were excellent. Full of flavour and meat was very tender. Managed to squeeze in a pudding which was also lovely but couldn't finish it. Staff... More

What a lovley little family run business. Went here with two other families 3 nights ago. We were looking for some authentic Maltese cuisine and found it. Great Maltese wine and excellent food. I went for the Maltese fish soup and 1/2 rabbit on pasta, it was excellent. No pretentiousness here just authentic regional cooking at a fair price. The... More

Delicious food, good wine and very friendly staff. Reasonable price - go there if you seek great Maltese cuisine. The road outside is busy, though - if you also want the great view.

We went to this restaurant as a group of 6 adults, 2 children, the service was brilliant, exceeded expectations. Food was amazing, not one complaint - not even from the children. The owner/waiter couldn't do enough for us.

Went for it after reading reviews here. As you do. Didn't disappoint. Typical local restaurant with owner always around and involved in all that happens. From welcoming us to the table and recommending some house wines to taking a picture of all of us. Menu is complete with local specialities like rabbit, fresh fish and soups of the day. Yummm!!...
