Had a great meal here and Martin (waiter) and his colleagues gave great service. Good food, reasonable prices and a fantastic location, what more could you ask. Perfect end to our holiday in Malta

We stopped at Raffael for an early dinner on a Sunday evening. The setting is excellent overlooking the harbour. The food was ok, but doing special. I did enjoy the 'crispy spaghetti carbonara', pasta fried like an omelet with bacon piece. Apart from that, very average.

Delicious vegetable salads, nice ambiente. This is a nice place to hang around and get some sun. A good salad dressing would make this perfect.

The staff were very polite and welcoming, the food was delicious (we tried the ravioli and lasagna), and the view from the terrace was breathtaking.

It's been some years since we've used Raffael, but called in one evening for drinks and coffees on a recent trip to Malta. Very quiet the evening that we were there, but we found the service to be good, friendly staff, with quality and reasonably priced drinks.
