We were attracted by the very nice location, however utterly disappointed by food and service. We waited incredibly long just to order and same happened when we waited for our order. The pizza was mediocre, the salad of the poorest quality. There are so many great places out there in St. Julian's and surroundings so you better go somewhere else.

Just popped in for coffee. Finished up having liqueur coffee and then a pear and Camembert salad. It was absolutely fantastic, good size portion as we had one between 2 and it was plenty. Great service and really pleasant staff. Would definitely recommend this, great location and views over the bay.

When mentioned to staff no attempt was made to address the problem. One dish, the bream was very good, two other main courses were average, while the fried squid with French... More

Food and service faultless. Very enjoyable evening. We were a party of ten with a seven month old baby and the staff went out of their way to accomodate us and ensure we had a memorable dining experience. The food was scrumptious and value for money. The salads and the ravioli were phenomenal.

Right in the center of S.Julien S Bay with a spectacular view and nice Maltese atmosphere. I tried the vegetarian pizza and I wasn't disappointed at all. Very big portions and for the wine lovers great variety of wines. I wasn't so impressed from the cheesecake but all the desserts they have they are so fresh! Very friendly the people... More
