We have been using this restaurant for nearly 30 years and have seen a dramatic decline in the last few years . This use to be my favourite restaurant in Malta and we use to go several times on each holiday, but recently we have only gone for " old times sake " and been disappointed each time. The setting...

This is a old established restaurant, always well known for fish dishes. We went there kast week and had an excellent meal. The three different types of fish were all cooked to perfection, just as we had asked. Service was very efficient and charming. We will certainly go there again.

Food is ok. We took soup and local dish with pasta. Nice view. Quiet at that time. Service was ok. Close to the hotel. They have a bar also but you can't pay with card.

We were greeted like old friends and made to feel... More

We visited in February, so few restaurants were closed but this one was open and we were nicely surprised. The staff was adorable, the dishes were huge and good (maybe too big though). We enjoyed the vegetable soup, pasta, seafood of course, potatoes... Very nice dinner! The restaurant also has free WiFi.

Well cooked fresh fish and beautiful location. Restaurant and furniture somewhat dated (plastic chairs which my husband commented were 'bendy'). When he (who is tall but slim) leant back to retrieve his wallet from his pocket to pay the bill, his chair broke and pierced his back in two places. First Aid was swiftly administered (did this happen often?). What... More

Went for Sunday lunch, three of us. We were seated outside alongside the sea, which was just beautiful. The staff moved the sn canopy during the meal so that we weren't sitting in direct sunlight. We all had fish starters; fish soup, mussels and the third was octopus. All were absolutely delicious. The wine was perfect too. The restaurant has... More

Good food and service, but nothing stood out which warranted particular note, apart from the sun set over the Palace which was glorious.
