“Beautiful views”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We went after seeing the menu and deciding we felt like burgers for once.
We had seats on the Basion overlooking (I think ) Mosta. It was beautiful at night.
The facility also hosts events and one was being held on the 3rd floor as we could see from the windows.
Food was good

“Good Food + Excellent Service”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We recently made a surprise party for mum in the rooms and terrace upstairs. The food was really good and original. Everyone enjoyed it and all had positive feedback about the place and the food. The views from the terrace are amazing too. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. It made this occasion a night to remember. Prices are also reasonable. A very big well done!!!

Such a beautiful restaurant, atmosphere And view though when you've got extremely poor service this is just not good enough unfortunately!
The staff were clearly never trained for the job or just simply couldn't care less.. Really was disgraceful apart from the only 1 Spanish waitress that poor thing was trying really hard to do everything herself! Otherwise absolutely disgraceful to the rest of the staff! We walked in and after waiting a good 30 mins had to get up ourselves to get the Menus and order drinks!. Eventually we ordered food and the food was left lying on the table for 10 mins before the cutlery was brought to us! About 1 hour from ordering... Plenty of time to lay a table.So again food could have been good though unfortunately it was cold!

This is just so annoying.... What's the point of having such a nice restaurant when you don't employ staff to complement the venue and values!! Really disappointed! Majority of staff we're rude and just ignored us! Any reason for us to return??? Shame because we both work in jobs that meet new people arriving to the island and always requested to recommend good restaurants...

“Good food, poor service”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

We went for a sunday lunch to this place. We were given 2 small tables between 8 people and barely managed to sit comfortably. Food was good however the overall service was very poor.
