The waitress was rude and not very helpful. During our wait 2 people stood up and left before they were given their food. I was witnessed as the waitress actually yelled at an older lady. The food wasn't good either. Not going back..

We stopped here for a break, and although the place was heaving due to it being New Year's Day, we were served pretty quickly. We had some great coffee and the cake was one of the best we've had in Malta. Staff were unflappably despite being so busy. We will return.

Stopped off here for lunch during a trip to to Valletta. Cafe is in a lovely location at the waterfront and had an extensive menu. We were served promptly by a friendly waitress but then.... 10 minutes after ordering another waitress came to tell us that we had to order something else as they had no mozzarella. We then waited...

This little restaurant has an appetizing menu and it wasn't until my last visit I realized that it's a vegetatian one. The Caprese sallad with fresh bread on the side is delicious. Tate offer a view over Grand Harbour Marina and the Valletta ferry is only a 10 minute walk away. Alternatively catch one of the dghajsa water taxis across... More

It's a pity having to write this review. We stopped by for a couple of drinks at about 11pm. Place was full with people so it was not closing anytime soon. However, the waitress did not feel like serving anyone apparently. She arrived grumpily at our table without even the slightest smile (not even a forced one) and took our... More

Stopped for a late lunch here while visiting Vittoriosa. Sat outside watching the world go by and had a pleasant meal in the sun with great service from the staff. There are a few eateries along the stretch of marina waterfront but we would certainly recommend this one.

Great location, good service and well priced. A great place for a coffee and some sweets or a light lunch / dinner - Pizza, pasta and salads.

Just had an amazing meal here. Do not be put off by it being a vegetarian restaurant. Last night we ate 750g of steak, today vegetarian, so not biased. The homemade ravioli was to die for. The children's pizzas just perfect. Best of all, based on its location, it was even priced very very reasonably. €13 for a huge bowl... More
