Had dinner here on a Sunday evening. The Set menu was delicious, the wine fantastic and the service second to none. Friendly all round and didn't want to leave. There should be more restaurants like this in Malta. The price was also reasonable. Well done.

Not sure this place deserves the rave reviews but it's pretty decent food. They were fairly accommodating with my sons dairy allergy.

We had the privilege to celebrate both our anniversary and birthday there. Thanks to the chef Ramona we had a great dinner and a wonderful experience.... More

Fine dining in Valletta. Excellent and fresh shellfish platter. Three-course set menu is good value. Nice wine list and friendly service. We were delayed at the airport and had to push back the reservation - no problem and we were never rushed, although we closed the restaurant that night. When we received the bill, one member of our party thought... More

The ambiance is quite sophisticated and elegant. The staff is helpful. The food is delicious. It is in the backstreets in Valletta so not too easy to find but it totally worth it.
