Not the best food nor the best service, but still a good place to have a drink and eat a maltese platter. The location is nice and calm, in front of the marina and the boats.

After experiencing a steak disaster at another restaurant in town, we went to this place and they saved my day. The service was timely and excellent. Waitress was courteous and took time in explaining dishes... And steak was finally cooked to perfection. It's also in a nice location on the Birgu Waterfront. Would definitely recommend.

When seated outside, you're able to enjoy such a great view of the marina. It offers good food and great drinks. The service was above average and the prices were very fair. With such a great location, this is a good visit.

Went here for lunch totally unplanned, however the staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was average to good , nothing especially worth writing home about but it was priced reflective. And we ate all we were given.

Friendly service is only good thing to note. The pasta served here is disgusting like some reviewers noted. Pity I didn't check Tripadvisor before stopping here for lunch. Rather thank squid ink, they use black food colouring in the pasta al nero di seppia. Tasteless and offensive. The prawn-filled pasta is bland store-bought fare smothered in a pink sauce vaguely...

We went to this restaurant for the location, because the view on birgu waterfront frome there is just wonderful!... when you stay outside. It was evening and a bit cold, so we decided to go inside, upstairs. Not so extraordinary, the interior was even rather ordinary. We installed at our table and ordered. Service was fast, even if the restaurant... More
