Description: Set in a picturesque bay in the village of Birzebbugia, on the site of a battery built by a Knight of St. John, Ferretti Restaurant boasts the perfect surroundings for a memorable dining experience.A good location is just a part of our story, however. We believe in building a long-lasting relationship with our guests, and once you have settled down and taken in the relaxing and unique ambiance of the restaurant, I will take you through an exciting range of Mediterranean dishes, which are the mainstay of our rich menu.Having made your choice, all that remains for you to do is sit back and enjoy the food that our chef will prepare using the finest and freshest ingredients, accompanied by a bottle of fine wine brought to you from the ancient vaults of this historic building.The battery which hosts the restaurant was built by the Knight Francesco Maria Ferretti in around 1715.

Yesterday was my first visit to this restaurant. The ambiance is nice and the food is great too. We took first plate and main course and desert and bottle of wine..total of €65 not that bad (couple). The service was good, even though it was a Saturday. I will visit again soon.

Satisfied with my first visit at Ferretti. The food was delicious and the view from the window was breath-taking. The restaurant is decorated really lovely and comfortable. The service was a bit slow but did not mind as I was enjoying the wine in the meantime while waiting for the food. The food was good and well-cooked so worth the wait.

It was New Year's Eve.We paid €50 per person.They wanted the full amount not a deposit and i phoned to make the reservation on monday and till the day I went to give the money that it was Thursday each day she called me to go to give her the money!!! They gave us a table not inside the restaurant but where normally it seems that hi use the place for summer it was covered with perspex.There was a heater near us the gas finished and no one came to change it and they knew about it! Instead who was sitting inside was more comfortable with an ac heater! We arrived@ the restaurant @ about 9:30pm and we were suppose to have a welcome drink and the welcome drink arrived about 25 mins after we sat down! We ordered ravioli as a starter and a soup we were 6 people and we ordered nuggets and chips for a child.We ordered also the main course we ordered 3 chicken breast, 1 duck and 2 ribe eye of veal.We asked if the duck could come without jalapenos but the waitress said that she couldn't and we ordered the veal meduim to well but the waitress said that the veal comes in pink only. @ 10:30 the starter came except the nuggets and chips! I think the ravioli where ready in the fridge and just put them in a plate because they were not hot! Then @ about 11:50 the second plate arrived finally when this was the time when she bring us the champagne!! But at that time we where going to eat the second plate! .The chicken was suppose to be a chicken breast but they bring to us half chicken. The duck was full of blood and the chicken only a thiny piece I took because it was uncooked.We told the waitress about he duck took it away and bring it after 4 mins and it was well cooked.Then we told the waitress about the chicken and she told us that she has no fault! Then @ about 1 hour after came and she told us that she was going to bring us a drink for this things that happened!! She was giving a drink to everyone not only to us!!! Then we had the desert was quite good.Then we had coffee the same problem again was not hot! Like all the other food! The only thing that was nice was the entairtment but nothing more!!!!!

Starters and main courses very good. I highly recommend this restaurant :) Best to book in advance.

Outdoor seating would be great in Summer.

Overall very satisfied with my first experience at ferretti. Food was delicious, ambience - cosy. Wine is very well priced and they have a vast selection of items on their menu. We chose meat for our main course and each of us wanted our meat cooked differently (medium to well/rare/well done). All three cuts of meat were cooked as requested. Service was a bit slow but given that they had a staff dinner of around 50 individuals at the same time, this is somewhat excusable.

Thank Elsa G
