Amazing atmosphere on the terrace, great food (as always) and live music. Has to be a dreamy combination. The terrace offers impeccable views of Malta while you enjoy your dinner. We visited during sunset and the atmosphere was heavenly. I keep going back!

Visited during weekend and stayed at the terrace, the ambience was very nice and also we could see fireworks from a feast nearby. Though the service was excellent and the staff were all very helpful, we did not like the food at all.

We visited Sharma before and dined inside, dinner and service was always great and the atmosphere too. Recently we booked for a Saturday evening and we requested a table on the terrace. The view is great, especially at sunset, ideal for a relaxing Summer evening....More

We booked a table for 7 on the terrace, which had a great view over the valley and the surroundings. The terrace is on top of ancient bastions which provide a great view of the surroundings and give you that nice on-top-of-the-world feeling. The restaurant...More

Disgraceful service, OK food and a disappointing evening. Avoid this restaurant especially if you're trying to impress a guest.
