We have visited Qawra a lot over the years and unfortunately always thought through the name that this was a kids / family only kind of restauraunt. We were wrong. Whilst it caters very well for families and kids (kids can join in the entertainment from Seashells hotel down stairs) it is a very good place for all occasions /... More

My wife and I visited the restaurant last week. She had a very nice paella main dish and I opted for a calamari main course. We both thought our choices were excellent and shared a nice bottle of Maltese white wine with our meals. Afterwards we both opted for ice cream for dessert as they came with generous helpings of...

We discovered this restaurant while walking along the coast road. It was clean and bright with a terrace overlooking the sea. The staff were friendly and helpful, there's plenty of choice on the menu and meals were brought out fairly quickly. Portions were very generous and the food was good.

We were just wondering around Qawra looking for somewhere nice for dinner, we happened upon Tal-Kaptan and thought it looked really nice and there were quite a few people already eating there. The service was good and I ordered the Veal escalope and my friend got the chicken pasta. When the food came it looked great, huge portions for the... More

We went to this place because it was near our hotel, but this place is really good. The menu is full of different dishes, anyone can find something. There is a terrace with a gorgeous view, and the service is really caring. But there is no wifi outside, and it's kind of expensive.

The restaurant is not bad, but also does not make an effort to distinguish itself. It offers good food, average service and average prices. Can recommend for a short lunch.
