Services were good but impersonable. Food was good but heavily flavored with local seasoning. May not be suitable for American palates.

Booked for husbands birthday, staff were only too happy to do a surprise "happy birthday" for us. A sparkler in his sweet and the whole restaurant singing happy birthday, a lovely surprise. Food was excellent and staff helpful and friendly, would definitely recommend.

The rabbit spaghetti as starters is a meal in itself. The catch of the day was delicous as was the beef olives. We hsd a doggy bag to take some home.... More

The restaurant is situated at a busy road, but still it was nice to sit outside looking over the sea with a good breeze. Service was friendly, quick and relaxed. Don't eat too fast because they will remove your plate immediately and you next plate will be in front of you in no time! They had an amuse from local... More

This place has a very rustic, traditional feel. I had the rabbit stew and my husband had the lampuki in lemon sauce and both were tasty. The complementary pate and crackers given while we waited for our food was tastier than most too. We risked a bottle of local wine at 9 euros and it was surprisingly good. Service was... More

The welcome and service here are excellent. The food is primarily local, and OK but nothing remarkable. The balcony tables are good for watching the world go by.

The ricotta ravioli was wonderful, al dente with a fresh tasting tomato sauce. The service was excellent:two-tiered, friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Definitely a good choice. A... More

Centrally located, this restaurant serves authentic and substantial Maltese food from a good range of menu. Service is good and friendly, if at times a bit slow. The ambience is rustic and comfortable. Readily recommended.

We called by chance and we're given a table on the balcony, which was ideal. It was our first night in Malta and so far, this restaurant is way ahead of the others that we have visited. Only issue is that the tables are too small.
