Good food. The only issue is the service, very slow, we had to wait a while for someone to even come and ask for drinks or to order. Food arrived in good time. But thenwhen we wanted to pay the bill it took a considerable...amount of time for them to come over for us to pay.More

Food was lovely and it was our second time dining here, the staff were all so lovely and helped with anything we needed especially Elena which helped us all night. If you like Italian cuisine this is the place to be. The restaurant is also...very well kept, clean and organised, it is not a big restaurant so therefore the staff is more attentive the their gusts. As a person who works in catering as well I appreciate these types of reviews as they can better and grow the outlet more, so keep in mind when dining out please put a review on how the experience was wether it was good or bad because all the outlets need feedback in order to grow and better themselves.More

Lovely staff, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Food was beautiful, very enjoyable. We ate there twice and enjoyed it so much. They were so good with our kids and they have more than the typical nuggets and chips for kids which was hard to find and...was very welcomed. If you are in the Mellieha area, try and get a table here, you won’t be disappointed!More

We noticed this beautiful terrace spot searching for dinner. Nice and attentive girl served us with a big smile. The menu was very impressive and all 3 of us could chose a different dish. The portions were huge and everything tasted delicious. Highly recommended!

The food portion was massive, we both can only finish half without going into food coma. The food doesn’t feel authentic Italian. My partner’s cheese one was extremely dense and my vongole was in a pool of oil (we both have been to Italy a...few times the food doesn’t taste like this), and it wasn’t fresh. Looking back I feel bad having ordered a seafood dish as the Mediterranean is one of most overfished sea in the world..More

Yesterday we dined at this beautiful restaurant. We were welcomed and seated by the very nice and charming Amelie. Food was divine, pizza cooked perfect and the tagliata was cooked perfect as well and full of flavour. Thanks Amelie for serving us with a smile...and well done to all. Highly recommended. I have only managed to take a picture of my dessert. And what a great initiative to use recycled napkins. Well done!More

I really should have reviewed this restaurant when we were here before Covid. For some reason I didn’t get round to it so we have just re-visited to check it was as good as ever before writing a review. And the great news is that...it is!. Although the setting doesn’t lead you to expect food of the quality that is served here you will not be disappointed by what the chef turns out. He has gone to great pains to produce a balanced and fresh menu and every item my wife and I had was perfect. My pizza was spot on (I wasn’t charged for the extra olives I requested) and my wife loved her veggie pasta. I would advise you to take time to read the menu to learn a little about Mellieha’s history and also the philosophy of this lovely restaurant and its innovative chef. Prices are excellent for the quality of food served and the wine list has some real bargains. OK this is not a ritzy location nor is the restaurant itself opulent, but I promise you you will not regret coming here for a meal. It will be a fixture on our annual trip to Malta for as long as it continues to excel.More
