Amazing cuisine with really good chef. Meal excellent, this restaurant announces its closure, it's so unfortunate. We came in February and loved the meal...we hope the best for all of you!

Visiting Malta for valentine's. My fiancee booked us for a Valentine's dinner at the Surf N Turf. The restaurant did not disappoint. The food was prepared at a very high level. The service was excellent. It deserves to be in the michelin guide as a...fine dining hot spot for Malta.More

So this has a very good rating and that paired with the menu is why I chose to eat here. There was nothing wrong with the food per say it all tasted nice but they forgot items which carried supplements (which were removed) but the...restaurant wasn't busy at all and we were in there 2.5 hours and the experience got lost because of the wait between dishes it all just took to long and ruined the experience it wasn't cheap either I wouldn't eat here again as the service was far too slow the owner only seemed interested in a table that gradually filled up with his friends and never once spoke to anyone else and didn't seem to care what was happening in his restaurant I'm disappointed as this place clearly was and should be so much betterMore

Very tasty and sophisticated dishes thanks to the chef, tasting refined but with a dose of flavor that emanates from the dishes - fish and steaks

I'm sorry to say but this restaurant is not fine dining. They have fine dining prices but the quality of service as well as food is very much lacking. Call it what it is, it is a tourist restaurant with some lobsters and exorbitant prices...to make it look like they are having something special.More

Reviews were accurate, amazing food cooked perfectly. My daughter and I both treated ourselves to the fillet of beef and it wasn't a mistake. Perfectly cooked medium/medium rare and the accompanying vegetables and roasted potatoes were equally great.

Food was fine, but the behavior of the manager was horrible. They served the wrong main dish. Starters were nice, but the main dish wash very plain. We asked politely what they have served, as it did not meet our expectations, and it did not...sound right according to the menu, as crab was supposed to be part of the dish, and it clearly no crab was on the plate. When we asked, the manager tried to start an argument with us. We calmly stated we did not wish to argue, but this is not what we ordered. The manager then considered if he would bring us what we actually ordered, but then decided to start an argument if whether or not we had started eating of the plate they had served. As if they wanted to serve this the dish, served on our table to another table?? I really hope not (!) He then placed the plate back on the table, and walked away. We were speechless. Very offended. Are our meals in shock. Paid the bill and hurried away, trying to save our night. But honestly, my mood and night is ruined. So disappointed, as the ratings/price of this place indicated we would have a nice experience.More

Had dinner at this restaurant with friends that were staying close by. Fantastic food, lovely ambience and more importantly, no communication issues as waiters were local and very well trained. An absolute pleasure after a few negative spoilt evenings out in other places! Keep it...up!More

We were the only customers for the nearly two hours we spent at the restaurant. The lobster served as part of one of the meals was probably frozen and not a live lobster taken from the tank. It was made clear that our request for...our steak to be medium well would not be provided by the chef. The service was satisfactory . While the meals where satisfactory we all felt it wasn’t value for money, It appears that they are living on their previous reputation.More

Easily the best restaurant we visited in Malta. The food was incredibly good, the staff was amazing as well and we felt like we were a royalty, they seriously took great care of us. I am sure it was not the last time we visited...this place, I definitely want to come again. We ordered seafood for all of the courses and it was fresh and delicious. Great experience and I recommend this place to anyone. Amazing, amazing, amazing!More
