We stayed here as we were waiting for the ferry. Be advised that the ferry doesn’t run between 20:00-22:00. we had some pasta, and wine all for a reasonable price. There is a bus back to silema should you not want to wait.

Nice experience, we crossed from Sliema to Valletta. Booked a table on the terrace so we had a lovely view of manoel island. The food was good, the only thing is that the food tool long to come at table.

Being with a group of 15 we had a perfect lunch. From nice salads to delicious rabbit to excellent fish. As the fish takes a while to prepare we got some nice plates with local delicacies. Very friendly service. Highly recommended
