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.

Everything we ordered (that is specialty of the day - seafood pasta and the whole blue bream fish) was fresh and smelled great. We loved the variety of wines the restaurant offers. Must go if you're a local Maltese cuisine lover.

We tried the local Rabbit dish and it didn't disappoint. We also had a whole seabream which was just beautiful - well cooked and presented. The roast potatoes are perfect ! Wine is very good and well priced, too. Service is excellent. A family run restaurant.

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.

Thank John B
