This restaurant, combined with the most kind host, has given us an experience not to forget. It was our first time in Malta. The food was delicious! Not to mention the fantastic view. The service and hospitality were amazing. Every restaurant here on malta can...learn something from it. Thank you very much guys! ( Suprise suprise ;) )More

We came back after 4 years and were not disappointed (even went back a second time during our one-week stay!). The terrace is slightly set back from the main street and offers views over St Julian's Bay. We had a Maltese platter to start which...was a good selection of local food (but too much ;-), followed by pasta dishes accompanied by a nice bottle of Italian wine.More

We've been to this restaurant in Winter and in Summer. The decor inside is warm and friendly and, outside, has a view of the pretty bay and the tables are on steps, therefore adequate social distancing. The food is delicious and not overly expensive. There...was a guitarist playing background music which was lovely. However, the last time we went a couple of weeks ago, there was loud music and we could hardly converse. Shame.More

Lovely friendly staff made us welcome and happy to talk through menu. I have meatballs was great, my kids had pizza and both said it was the best they had ever had giving it 11 out of 10. We will be coming back for sure....Ceased salad was also great. For a starter their sharing bread is a must.More

After a horrendous experience across the street of zero service we stormed out at almost 11pm and wandered into this very fine establishment with no waiting around. Everything about this restaurant is top class. The food, the wine, the service and atmosphere were all amazing....We were very well looked after. Such a lovely restaurant with a professional yet charming team of staff Highly recommend the supreme chicken and the cheesecake! Wow!!More

COVID 19 and new normal era. It was a pleasant surprise dinning out at this restaurant during this strange time in our lives. Perfectly designed outside sitting area where the tables are surrounded with flowers and nice view of Balluta bay is impressive. Very friendly...staff and fast service is what you do not find everywhere. So let see what is on the menu. Wide variety of fish and meet dishes as well as excited plates of pastas. We were five and sitting inside the restaurant where the tables are well spaced. We had fresh tuna prepare perfectly. Medium grilled with grilled veterans. Very tasty! Grilled calamari in butter and drizzle of oil as well as gnocchi with pulled pork. Well do not forget to have a glass of wine my preferred is Vignavella from Sicily white smooth and with long lasting taste. Well I would definitely return to this restaurantMore

My husband and I visited this restaurant on our first night in Malta on 13th February 2020. The staff were friendly and the food was exceptional. I had booked in advance and this is a good idea as it is such a popular venue. We...tried to eat there again on our last night but it was fully booked. Thoroughly recommend this delightful place which has an extensive menu at very reasonable prices.More
