I am generally quite happy with food here in Malta, but this was one of my best finds. Amazing price/quality ratio. I had a fish soup and a grilled swordfish, both from the daily menu, and both were delicious. Swordfish was a huge piece, enough for 2 people to share. Though it said "chips" on the menu and I expected... More

Went twice to this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed both times. The sea food and steaks were superb, we also had the stuffed chicken which was beautiful

We are Italians and we complain about food quite often... We came back 2 evenings in a row! Sword fish is great, octopus is great, it's really good. Small and cozy with nice music too.

It's not the first time we've been to this amazing restaurant. Food is ALWAYS excellent with good sized portions. All the food is to die for but my favorite remains the calamari :) ... I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Keep it up Fabian & Raffaella !!!!

I've been here twice & both times my meals were delicious. The first time I ordered the seafood spaghetti & the second time the bragioli (Maltese cuisine rabbit). Both were delicious.

My friend and I ordered and then the lovely waitress brought us homemade humous with crackers and Maltese sausages (the best I have eaten on the island - I had to enquire where they had purchased and was...
