It was our first night and we had no idea where to eat. This was close to where we were staying and looked quaint. The lady who runs the place was lovely and knowledgeable about the menu. I tried the market fish of the day (Seabream) which was cooked to perfection. Great wine selection and good prices too. Hopefully visit... More

If we hadn't parked near by, we might have missed out on this little gem of a restaurant, since it's off the main street. We were warmly welcomed by Pamela, the lovely owner and had a delicious meal outside on the candlelit terrace. Our dinner was excellent - tagliolini with seafood for me, and a tender steak for my carnivore... More

Just eaten here with the good lady. Bruschetta and prawn cocktail for starter....excellent. Sea bream and beef steak for main...superb. So full we shared a creme brûlée. Two bottles of Maltese falcon Merlot to accompany the food. Excellent food and service and no rush.

We had great food here (lovely prawns, pasta and steak) and a lovely welcome from the waitress, who was great with the kids. We sat outside on the veranda which (if you ignored the digger parked opposite!) was very pleasant. Definitely recommend it!

We arrived just about 6pm so we had to wait which is understandable. We ordered a plate for 2 and that was lovely. After I had a beef fillet which was dry and overcooked although I ordered medium which is in my opinion is soft. All together i must say the waiting staff saved the night. They were really friendly... More

we have been here many times before under the previous owners where the steaks were really good so we thought we would try with the new owners.We found the steaks was not as good but were still nice and the menu was not as good as the old one.

When you find a restaurant that is as good as this one you cant help but return. The menu is uncomplicated, all freshly cooked and much of it locally sourced. We cant go to the island without at least one visit to the Overflow. Our host are very friendly, always on hand to recommend, look after our every need whilst... More

Recently I visited Malta for about 10 days; I had dinner at the Overflow several times; the fact that I ate there several times should tell you something; the restaurant is owned by a lovely couple; he is the chef, she looks after the customers; you can sit inside or outside; the food was excellent and the service was too;...

A excellent menu card (mainly Italian dishes), very polite and elegant service, and a cosy jazzy atmosphere. A very fair prices. The only time we have chosen to eat the same restaurant twice during a one week holliday.

The New Overflow Restaurant, under new management, is located at Triq il-Maskli, Qawra, just a street parallel to Triq it-Turisti. Bright and airy, the restaurant is ideal to grab a bite at lunch time or to order a one to three course in the evening. One will fall in love with the restaurant with its genuine Mediterranean cuisine accompanied by an excellent service.
