Service great, food was fabulous. I had the chicken Americano with a mushroom sauce ☺ and my wife had the ribeye steak with a blue cheese sauce. Best holiday meal so far.

Had a delicious meal with friends. I had the fillet steak, it is the best steak I have had in Malta! Excellent staff, great service. Great menu choice. Will be returning to try the other things on the menu which sounded superb.
