Beautifully put together menu with a lovely ambience even on a week night in slightly off season. The food was gorgeous and would 100% recommend anyone staying in Malfa to visit. The grilled Octopus was a highlight.

Upmarket eatery with delicious variations on local specialities. We really enjoyed their seafood menu, especially the octopus, tuna and swordfish dishes. A bit more expensive than most of the others in the town, but worth it.

Really enjoyed this restaurant - excellent simple food, fresh, delicious, local, reasonably priced and the family who runs the restaurant could not have been nicer. Had pastas, fresh fish and excellent salads. This was one of those feel good meals, where everything works, from the...More

The servers were extremely friendly and spoke great English. The view of the sea in the distance with some sheep and a goat in the foreground was lovely while it was light, so get there when they open (7:30, despite what Google says). But the...More

My wife and I came by this establishment after we were suggested it by our hotel. This was our first night in Malfa so we did not have a good lay of the land in as far as food is concerned. After the last four...More
