I suggested this restaurant for a Company dinner with my Managers (20th of October). The service was very professional and attentive. The raw fish and the other antipasti were delicious, the same for the bottles of white wine we ordered. As first course, some of...us ordered some paccheri as main course, but the variety of pasta served was not definitely paccheri. One of the main was also portioned as starter, that was annoying my colleague. We would have appreciated being informed about a different kind of past to be served. The desserts were very good, especially the warm chocolate fondant, even if dessert are overpriced. The overall experience was pleasant, we appreciated the atmosphere and the beauty around and the food served.More

I have been numerous times at this restaurant and it is one of my favourites on the island. Food is always delicious, staff are very friendly and helpful. The last time I visited I had Arancini al Nero di Sepia as a starter and Calamari...alla Griglia as a main, both were really delicious. I hope to visit again very soon!More

They focused more on setting the table than the food. Five different waiters with different attitudes then came the food. Worst prawns I have had and not value for money. I ended up not eating the prawns

Nice service, very good food, but I would recommend to the service to smile more and forgot the poker face approach. I would feel more comfortable here.

Seated on the terrace and enjoyed a mixed seafood dinner and Maltese wine. A lovely restaurant in St Juliens.

The food was very very good and we all had different starters and mains. At first we felt that the service was very attentive to us but unfortunately as the evening progressed it turned sour. Our collective score was that the food was excellent but...the attitude at the end spoiled it. This could be down to us, however we don’t see how, and it could be perfect for others., we couldn’t say. But the food was marvellous and we enjoyed it up until the end.More

A smart setting in the stylish Portomaso Marina, but lacked a bit of old Malta charm. Service was professional but with just a hint of arrogance. Not sure it is really necessary to have an under 50 Euro per head spend 'penalty'. Food varied from...not great to outstanding. Arancini did not really do it for me, pasta was over salted, salt baked fish was superb but the accompanying veg was not and deserts were excellent. So, bit of a mixed bag food wise. The jury is still out on this one for me.More

As a Chef and world traveler this has to be my favorite Resteraunt in Malta. The fish is always fresh and the chef inspired dishes are exceptional. The staff and service are spot on and the ambiance is wonderful. Enjoy a great dinner with friends...on the gorgeous patio over looking the Marina and beautiful night sky…. Great selection of wines! Please make this your next visit, you won’t be disappointed.More
