“Long wait... small portion!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I'm a local and I've been here for a couple of other times. Usually it has reasonable service with reasonable food. However, on my last visit, it was terrible! We ordered water and we got a bottle of frozen water (solid ice!). After ordering an omelette and a spaghetti bolognese (main course), we waited for more than an hour. Other tables ordered the same food after us, and they got their food before us. After waiting for 90minutes, we asked the waiter to check about our order in the kitchen. We were told "Qed ihawdu fil-kcina" meaning that the chefs are doing a mess out of orders in the kitchen. After 5 minutes, our food was served. It was ok but it was starter size not main course size! We decided to skip dessert, and pay the bill. We were not even given a receipt! Amateurish service!

“The most typical old Maltese restaurant serving authentic food.”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We've been to this place so many times over the past thirty or so years and very little has changed and I just hope they keep it this way. The restaurant is very large and may get noisy when it's busy but you don't come here for the ambience, you come for the food, especially the divine rabbit. Spaghetti first and then rabbit in garlic or with gravy, lots of fresh Maltese bread, some nice wine and that's what it's all about. Friendly place which is always great to come back to.

“Great worth for the price”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Located very near the Lapsi area where many people regularly swim and scuba dive during the summer. There is also local transport available during the summer. Has a large variety of food and drink and at a good price. I would recommend the rabbit, its mouth-watering..

“Not worth the wait ..”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Been here for a family occasion , was really looking forward to see what this place offered.
The restaurant over all is very nice indeed over looking the lovely Ghar Lapsi Bay, however it was a bit took crowded!

Food took a long while to be prepared - meats were not cooked as ordered and the fish that was on displayed definitely was not the same one that we got. Service is horrible and food is really expensive.

Definitely not a come back!
