Lovely restaurant in the beautiful town of Valletta. It's a family owned restaurant, and the host and his chef wife came out to greet us all. The service was immaculate, fair prices and wonderful food. We greatly enjoyed our evening, can't fault it.

Dined here last night and whilst the evening was enjoyable, it didn't live up to the hype. To be fair, we didn't reserve a table and the restaurant was full to capacity with a number of large group bookings, so perhaps we struck a bad night with the wait staff stretched close to breaking point.

We went here on our first night in Valletta and had a wonderful meal at a reasonable cost for the quality of food. If you are looking for a special place to enjoy a meal, visit Palazzo Preca.

What a wonderful restaurant. We were so lucky to get a table without a reservation- we managed to get the last one and then saw many people after us get turned away as the restaurant was fully booked. The waitstaff were friendly and helpful, chatting to us about our trip and helping us select the most special Maltese dishes. Our... More

The restaurant is situated in a beautiful narrow street in Valetta and the ambience of it is superb. Staff are all kind and very helpful with a sense of humour. The food is presented in a professional way but most of all is fresh and deliscious. A place we visit frequently and the menu is changed ever so often so... More

Visited this restaurant with my work mates and client to celebrate the accomplishment of a project. And it turned out to be a perfect way to round it off nicely. Everyone was happy with food (and there are some who be very peculiar about food) and the whole services. Not sure becuase whether it was co-incidental with the season (Oct)... More

Even if you are only in Valetta for a few days make this wonderful restaurant one of your must visits. The building is very atmospheric (as of course is Straight St where it is situated), the staff are very friendly and the food is mouthwateringly good and local. Oh and the price is very much VFM

We visited on a busy night, but the waitress was still able to find us a pleasant table. From the moment we entered the restaurant to the moment we left we were treated like we were the only guests in the restaurant. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The staff seemed to know what we wanted without us having... More
