Very good food, nibbles served before the meal, a welcoming ambience - you even become friends with the owner after a couple of visits - you don't have to go as far as Mgarr to enjoy this traditional meal!

Unfortunately the sauce was a tad runny. However as soon as the rabbit was served on our table I must say that I... More

The local rabbit is fried and tasty and just perfectly tender and the rib eye steak was cooked to perfection - I asked for medium and it was delicious with a tasty chargrilled top. Totally recommend the service, the atmosphere and the food

Menu is on wall, but they cater for vegetarian and gluten free diets which is not written anywhere. We told the older man of our needs and that we wanted a snack. Gluten intolerant visitor was asked if he liked rabbit and responded, I can't eat much and told "don't worry I make something small". We ordered two veg starters... More

Parking is normally not a problem. The place is basic but very clean and relaxed environment. Very friendly and good family kind of service. Consistently very good quality food, both meat and fish dishes. Fried rabbit one of the best on the island. Consistently reliable and an enjoyable meal out.

Charlie's Inn, situated opposite Ta'Cassia Restaurant in Salina is supposedly well known for traditional Maltese rabbit and other traditional dishes. The restaurant itself has very uninspiring decor, although if you sit near the window you do have a good view of the Salt Pans. When I went, my husband and I opted for the rabbit dish. When it arrived it... More
