We stopped for coffee and a smoothie, both excellent. We weren't hungry but the food looked so good we were tempted! The staff are so lovely and friendly. We would be regulars if we lived nearby!

We dropped by this cafe/restaurant several times during our week in Valletta. Always helpful staff, good value food. Weather was a bit variable so we also went inside for a meal once, rather small inside space but much appreciated when the wind blew! Large portions!

Pleasantly satisfied. The food was well prepared, well presented and tasted scrumptious. The staff (foreigners) were helpful, professional and attentive to the right degree.

Went for lunch and chose the Maltese Tapas for two. Very disappointing - the cheese was dry and hard; the dip was tasteless; sausage - average at best; the curried snails - were weird! My husband loves eating and trying different cuisines but a big...More

What was wrong with the food? You seem to be self contradictory as you had then and after complaining that the price was beautiful?! (meaning satisfied).

This is a family run business and we do our best to give the home made food feeling. We mainly cook A La Carte therefore the menu changes twice daily, depending on what is fresh during the day. For those that are in more of a rush there are the snacks and burgers menu. Being exactly in the middle of Valletta one could shade themselves from the scorching sun under our lovely trees whilst having their well deserved break.
