Attraction details
Owner description: An unforgettable experience of a unique Maltese folklore show and dinner, giving eager audiences a glimpse of Malta through the ages, as this tiny but significant Island of ours journeys from the prehistoric to present times… with special emphasis on one of the greatest chapters in Maltese history … the Knights of St. John and the Great Siege, when a small garrison of the famous Knights of St. John together with our heroic Maltese defenders managed to defeat the mighty Ottoman Empire. A talented cast of dancers and entertainers dressed in rich medieval costumes and shining armour together with our magnificent horses, will entertain, excite and amuse you during two hours of non-stop action, song and dance. Witness a colourful fusion of tribal music, folk dancing, carnival, fire dancers, knights on horseback, live battles and much more highlighting Maltese culture, traditions and folk.

“A bit of a let down. ”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Looking forward to a show filled with wine, food and a show!
This had food, sprite and a show. However we couldn't understand a word of what was said due to poor sound system, no wine! Food was ok but not brilliant.
The show itself was pretty good but could've been better, it skipped over important bits and dwelled too long on bits that were seemingly irrelevant.
Would I go again? No.
Did I enjoy it? Yes, it was a night out and it was different but it could've been better.

“Disappointing, where was the wine?”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We agree with nearly all of the comments below, acoustics poor, far too long, over priced, food OK, but where was the wine? we had a jug of lemonade plonked down in front of us, what a con, no choice. Such a shame I expected a really good night out after the hype. No one likes to feel we haven't had value for money ,but we certainly didn't this night.

“Oh dear!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Visited with a large group and pretty terrible. As everyone said, was way too long, indeed we had organised a bus to collect us at 10pm and was still going then. Whilst there was as much drinks as you could drink, the quality of it was poor, the food was very much like school dinners. The worst part however was the performance - it was impossible to hear the narrator and so no real idea what was going on - Resembled something from legoland

“Overpriced and too long”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

As other reviewers have also stated, the show is way too long and too repetitive. The start was promising, but then it started do go down. They really should do something about the acoustics, as we could not hear a word - the speech was one mess. The food was quite good and there was plenty of it, but the wines were terrible.

“Oh dear- and it could have been so much better.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I think that the poor reviews on here are spot on except that I did find the food quite tasty. The drink however did not excite me. The main problem I feel was the narration. The girl tried very hard but she was let down by a very bad sound system. As another reviewer pointed out, although you could be quite close to her, you couldn't understand a word she said. It wasn't her speech but very echoey building. The venue was about a third full which I don't suppose helped but unless they do something about the sound it will not improve. Obviously a lot of work has been done to produce this event but unfortunately I enjoyed the bumpy bus ride back to the hotel a great deal more. Sorry!
