This place is reknown to serve good rabbit. Yes rabbit because in Malta it is one of the most favourite dishes. We were quite a large group. To start with we had spaghetti served with rabbit sauce. 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

I'd been holding off to go to this restaurant because I'm not the biggest fan of rabbit, and that is advertised as its specialty. However, I was recently persuaded by a friend, and boy was it a really wonderful surprise. The servers were sweet like family the moment you walked in the door. The owner greeted us personally and hung... More

We had a dinner at Charlie's inn Rabbit House and we are still licking our lips. The traditional Rabbit dish - Fried whole rabbit in wine and garlic was fantastic. The sauce was out of this world. We also had nice appetizers - Rabbit spaghetti and mozzarella salad. Both were great. Nice selection of wines as well. The owner himself... More

This was fantastic. A friend of mine took me to this establishment to try, what he termed, "the best Maltese rabbit in the country". I had been waiting 7 years to try this dish, and I was not disappointed. We got the whole rabbit, in it's stew, with chips (fries) and a bottle of red wine. I was MOST impressed... More
