Lunch or weekend evening meals

We have used this restaurant many times over 4 years of being in Mellieha. This time we had a super lunch meal of fresh fish. We then had some evening meals at the weekends. Try this restaurant you will be welcomed.

We stopped off as it was just about to rain. Oh blessed shower. One Maltese starter platter and one fish platter later we just found room for dessert! Not the cheapest place around but the starter platter was full of flavour and colour and as for the fish/seafood platter....WoW. One Sea Bass plus a large fillet of local fish along... More

After our two weeks stay at Mellieha bay we were sad that we had discovered Zefferino to late. Or maybe it was a protection to be able to also discover the other pretty restaurants the bay offers. Who knows. During our first visit we dined and fell in love with the marvelous, delicious and great presented dishes this venue has... More

Booked table on recommendation. Seated on veranda table at 7pm. Served with drinks and menu very welcomely. Lovely variety of Maltese choices including rabbit and octopus dishes. Not overly priced. Good value for money. Superb evening.

We visited this restaurant recently, was clean and the food was ok, however, the real problem was with the staff. We were attended to by a stern, serious looking lady, the welcome was not the warmest unfortunately and the atmosphere was less than friendly. They were kind to our children however.
