“Good food and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Good food served here next the recently renovated cruise terminal. A Maltese friend recommended this place to me as the best restaurant in that vicinity. The seafood starter was good - the fish main was ok but not great, and the Cassata dessert at the end was very nice.

A bit on the pricey side - perhaps trying to capture the rich cruise-goers - but a good place to visit nevertheless.

“Forget it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We wanted dinner with a nice view of the waterfront and you certainly get it here. However, I had the biggest and toughest calamari I have ever eaten--or tried to eat. Would not recommend it.

“Dining at Valletta waterfront”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

The location is nice, food good, but not excellent. For service the restaurant would be worth 2 stars only, but food quality and location gives a 3+.

“Avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Maybe it was simply a bad evening for the head waiter, but that's not an excuse to be rude to customers. After all, customers pay for the service. Food was ok, neither bad nor something to come back for. Sweets could be skipped. Definitely not a good bargain for what you get. Simply avoid.

“Great food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and the food in very good. The only problem i had this time is that the waiters were not welcoming and need to improve their hospitality skills, and take care of their cutomers if they want us to return.
