Excellent cuisine with fresh ingredients. The mussels with a touch of cream are amazing. The mussels are sweet and melt in your mouth. It is impossible not to dip bread in the sauce. The shrimp cocktail is packed with shrimps and has a scrumptious sauce. Pasta is cooked perfectly al dente. The salmon, shrimp and caviar sauce is wonderful. Fish... More

Simon owns and cooks all the food. In the evening his sister and dad help out - they take very great pride in what they do and the food here is in a class of its own. Well worth a visit and we go at least 4 times a year - twice each visit to Malta!

Visited for dinner mid-week. Service was good, staff polite and friendly. We both had fish which was cooked well and served with chips and salad. However, it was a little bland and uninspired, literally just a piece of fish and some chips. Nothing more, nothing less.

it is difficult to find fresh fish in Malta, and non-touristy prices. This cozy restaurant on the sea side unifies great food to good prices and, last but not least, very nice service. Warmly suggested

I loved this restaurant, so much so we ate there twice. It is understated and with no frills, but the food and the service are excellent. The food is simple, fresh, and cooked beautifully. There is plenty of seafood - and the chef will happily show you what fish he has available from the days catch. For meat lovers, the... More

There is nothing special or novel about the food in this restaurant, but what you have is genuine, good, finely cooked, and the service, though not highly professional (for example, the wine was presented to us already opened), is very friendly and prompt. Moreover, there are snacks included in the menu, which is a plus if you have kids who... More

Stopped to eat here as we were wandering up the seafront during the evening. Quite a small establishment with a few weeks pavement tables. Chef was proud to show us his fresh fish and the majority of us had some form of seafood. A friend had the fillet steak which was excellent.

We ate here a couple of times on our holiday. Each time the waitress told us what was especially good on the menu that night and she was right. Seafood very good. The calms were lovely and fresh. We were lucky enough to get lampuki here too - it was only just coming into season. They were happy to do... More
