The food we had was all fine, but the service was not pleasant and felt rushed and moody. If this was cheap then I would be fine, but it is a mid-range restaurant and I think its a shame service lets in down - could have just been an off day but would be wrong to not mention this.

Went there for dinner and were seated quickly but then nobody came so I had to call a waiter and ask for the menu. It took a while to get drinks, eventually bread, and finally about an hour after placing the order we finally got our meal. My salad was not great but the chicken and fish were pretty good.... More

Have eaten at Zefferino several times in the past and were not disappointed this time. Good honest local fare and wonderful fresh fish. Would gladly recommend.

Visited Zeffirino's twice as the food was really good quality with reasonably pricing. Sue made us feel very welcome. We always ended up taking a "doggy bag" home with us as the portion sizes were huge! If visiting Malta again, we would definitely go back to Zeffirino's

We ate there on our first night and went back almost every other night of our ten day stay. The portions are absolutely massive and the food is really fresh and well cooked. They have a great local wine list at very reasonable prices and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Only very slight criticism is that the sauces were... More

A few doors down from the Luna Hotel this is a great place to eat. The staff are friendly and the fresh fish was absolutely delicious. You'd be a fool not to give this place a visit.

Had a meal here for my birthday whilst on holiday and would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone, the seafood linguine was to die for and the steak cooked to perfection. Complimentary fresh made bread and A1 service. Could not fault 1 single thing.

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay the menu is very good and included some Malyese specialities which we enjoyed. The pasta dishes are also excellent. A nice touch was a nice taster courtesy of the chef. Very decent wine list. The service is very good. You should definately try this restaurant if in Mellieha.
