We very much enjoyed this great restaurant. We had seafood soup and then I had the salt cooked sea bass. Both were great. They also had O'Melveny amazing bread filled in the center with olives or butter. Before the meal they give you a little treat that is quite tastey.

Had a very short lunch break with a friend ... we both went for the '' Special of the day '' Pasta Nero and a good thing we did.. it was exquisite and seriously..the best black pasta I ever had..better than the one I had in Venice next to Rialto bridge which is supposed to be their famous local dish. I had a glass of house wine which went well with the dish.. we finish it off with the house specialty dessert and an espresso.
Would go again.

Go, run don't walk, and enjoy a special dinner at Sale e Pepe. The waiter was fun, interested, and knew the menu without question. All our meals were superb, and the local Maltese wine as amazing! It's a quick and short walk from the Hilton.

We happened across this place when the place we were going to was full. Ended up the best place we visited during our week on Malta. The one mistake we made was ordering both starters and a main course - they were great, but they serve large portions - a main course is plenty enough.

I was staying in St Julian's on business and stumbled on this place when looking for something to eat. Most places in St Julian's appear quite basic - pizza and pasta pretty much everywhere. Nothing that looked like 'fine dining.' This was a very relaxed restaurant, and I went two nights running. TVs on, showing football one night and a local station the next. Service was very friendly. I tried melon and parma ham which was just as it should be, a fantastic steak tartar and fresh fish both nights - once baked in salt and other roasted. Prices are fair. I will be back.
Many people say you can judge a restaurant by its bread. Well, if that were true, this place would score very highly. Warm, freshly baked bread with excellent fillings arrive soon after ordering.
