“Wonderful dinner”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Last friday we had dinner at the Tosca in Mellieha - got a very nice table on their little patio over looking melieha road and village. Very friendly greeting by Etienne, who was very attentive throughout dinner never letting us feel the need to call him for something.

Order was taken very profesionally, we went for Fish and beeF fillet as maincourses after etiennes explanations.
For starters we had seafood pasta which was amazing and very well sized and with lots of seafood inside for its price and beef carpaccio which was also very good but could have been presented with some extras such as crostinis or some tomatoes as portion like this was a bit on the small side.

Mains came in swiftly after the starters, fish was filleted on the spot after being presented as a whole after cooking. Both Fish and Fillet of beef where top quality, sides were also very good (baked potatoes and grilled veg) and generous portionwise.

For desert we had the chocolate dome which was delicious and a caramel icecream

All in all we had a lovely dinner, good food and service close to perfection even if the place was pretty busy. Value for money is good also, would defintely recommend and go for another visit

“Excellent food-friendly waiting staff.”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

Having visited Tosca on two occasions whilst here in Mellieha I can honestly say that the food is outstanding and certainly excellent value for money.
Regarding the critical review on 6th August I believe it is only fair to state that the slow service this day was due to teething difficulties with the new kitchen. The chef was so obviously getting used to his new surroundings and if only the management had allowed the waitress to explain this, I believe customers would have been more tolerant-honesty is the best policy.
Yes the service was extremely slow compared to our previous visit, but then I'm not in a massive hurry-I am on holiday! If your food is unsuitable-tell the restaurant at the beginning, don't eat it and then complain on Trip Advisor.
The waitress was excellent although I certainly would have another staff member on hand in a situation like the opening of a new kitchen to pacify customers.
So to sum up-food fantastic, staff wonderful, loved this restaurant and will be back again before we go home. Management - you should have considered teething difficulties as you open a new kitchen and put things in place to keep your service users contented!
People go and experience for yourself and judge the food-you won't be sorry.

“Great Inside”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

On a hot day - there is no where better to eat than in the air conditioned ambience of Tosca.

I went twice (the second driven by the offer of a free bottle of wine when paying for the first). The set menu had fantastic fresh pasta as a starter and an unbelievable Hake fillet main course - steamed in local spices and served with fresh salad. Both course for 13 Euro. Unbeatable.
