Admittedly, we arrived late for lunch but having been served, the waitress began to clear up around us. Tables were cleared, the chef left and then the waitress began to show the lady washing up how to retract the canopy after we had left. She then collected her bags and left as we completed our main course! It was just... More

This restaurant is directly on the street, overlooking the sea. You can watch the world go by enjoying their drinks and food. I chose prawn spaghetti and my husband a Maltese omelette. The food was average, with the spaghetti quite bland, and should have been served with black pepper and Parmesan to give it more flavour.

Had been recommended this restaurant but we were slightly disappointed with it. Fish potions were good. Sea bass and swordfish but portions of chips and salad were very small. Expensive for what we had.

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
