“Good but pricey”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

The service was good, the food was good but nothing out of this world. Location is good, (Sliema sea front), But the prices are extremely high.

“Over-priced average food and rude manager”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

The title says it all. After a busy day went for a meal near our hotel. This restaurant looked ok from outside but.... the food was very average. The manager gave us the last table near the door claiming the other tables were booked. He was lying as a few minutes later he split one of the "booked" tables to accommodate 2 more walk-ins. He was also very unpleasant with his staff, who were lovely and raised my report from 1 circle to 2. The food was, at best, indifferent. Beware the specials, they are not special and a lot dearer. Make sure you check the price. Also check the pasta small print - extra for main course not clearly indicated. This place is completely devoid of charm.

“Good food”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

I had a fairly basic chicken salad but it was cooked and presented really well and tasted yummy! The rest of the food ordered was equally good and we had no complaints. The service and prices were good! Would recommend this restaurant.

“The best restaurant on the seafront in Sliema”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

This was by far the best restaurant we ate in during our week in Sliema. The owner served us himself and was extremely helpful in choosing wine. The quality of the food was excellent. I had a very large, well cooked and well presented steak. This was one of the few places where Calypso coffee was properly prepared and served. This is a must if you like quality!

“Good Value for a Nice Meal”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We stopped at this restaurant on a chance, it was a busy time of the day, but we managed to get a table right outside. We were a party of four, three had risotto which was excellent and the fourth had a bruschetta snack which again was good, we had wine and overall it was good value for money and very good service, would visit again.
