Rooms with large windows can seem very dank on cold wintry evenings. Fortunately, Raffael looks onto compact Spinola Bay with the lights from the road, across the bay combining with those on the (deserted) terrace and on the adjacent "LOVE' sculpture, to support ambience. Maybe this was why it offered that gauge by which I partly decide where to eat when in a new place - plenty of people eating there. The menu is fairly long and the beef olives offered something 'Maltese' - they were good beef olives and satisfied my curiosity, but didn't go beyond. Our waiter reflected the warmth we had become accustomed to experiencing from Maltese people - in contrast to his colleague, a lady with little charm. Maybe better weather brightens her mood as well as affording use of the terrace.
