“Nice find”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Tucked away in a side street this was a little difficult to find at first. Without a reservation we were seated inside and to begin with were the only people in the restaurant. However it soon filled up and the atmosphere was very nice. It seems to be popular with more 'couples' dining than family parties.
The food was well presented and a great menu range. Some of the best fish I've tasted (Sea Bream perfectly cooked). A little disappointed that the chips were not home made but pre prepared' frozen' type. With all the great potatoes in Malta surely some fresh potatoes would complement the otherwise great food even better? Good service and great food at reasonable prices.

“Wonderful find. Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

This place sums up everything a restaurant experience should be. Amazing food, professional and friendly service, a great price and a wonderful setting. I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Malta. It's a great find and our best dinner in 10 days on Malta.

“What a little Jewel of a place in Malta”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Stayed in Malta on business for a week in July and came across this place on this site.

To keep it short and sweet the food is amazing I had octopus risotto, fillet peperoncino and fig and orange tart.

To sum up excellent food, great wine list with very reasonable prices for some big reds and great friendly staff

Definitely visit this restaurant you will not be disappointed.

“Nice little restaurant”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

A very quaint little restaurant tucked in a corner of Balluta Bay. Lovely food served by fantastic staff - excellent service. There is not much outdoor space so you need to book for an outdoor table but inside was fine.

“Incredible food, flawless service”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Ate here with 4 friends in June, all of us stunned by such a wonderful meal. We ordered several different dishes but all were outstanding. Staff were knowledgeable and attentive. Wide variety of food available, I had the prawn starter and a pasta dish for mains and although the description was quite straightforward the flavours were wonderful. All of our group agreed it was one of the best meals we had, and was great value
