Having visited this restaurant a few times during our holiday in Mellieha we cannot fault this restaurant. The food is amazing with good size portions at reasonable prices. In fact we went to a top class restaurant in Mellieha where we paid top price and the food is no where near as good as II Padrino plus II Padrino prices... More

This restaurants terrace offers a lovely view on the bay and we enjoyed it very much. My boyfriend had the Tuna steak and I had the Swordfish fillet with Calamaris as a starter. Everything was fresh and delicious! Staff was also very attentive and friendly.

From arrival to departure this was easily the best restaurant experience in ages. All staff were friendly and attentive from the first minute. Service was first class and food likewise, with a good choice of either local or imported wines. Lovely views over the bay although we had to move inside when it started to rain, but staff made sure... More

the restaurant has a splendid view over the bay. If you can sit on the terrasse, do so. Service is marvelous - friendly and genuinely interested in your experience. The food however is not so great. My pasta with seafood was bland and didn't really taste like much. I was offered a cognac when the waiter heard that I was... More
