We had a great experience in this restaurant on our last night in Malta, we were 6 adults and 2 children youngest being terrible 2 the staff are very helpful and friendly.
The starters were all delicious the home made soup, muscles, octopus and garlic prawns, they also gave baskets of garlic bread and plain bread the Maltese bread is lush.
Our main's also superb my daughter had the biggest juice filet steak ever, the rabbit tasty and plenty of it although my husband does find the bones a bit of a chore. I had stuffed veal again tasty, the fileted fish was as told bone free and again delicious.
If in the area do visit nice friendly restaurant.

I recently visited this restaurant and had to try the seafood as everyone recommends it in Malta. There wasn't a massive menu, however, this is a small restaurant so you wouldn't expect one. This was one of the nicest restaurants we visited and we sat outside as it was so hot the week we visited. The food was reasonabley priced. I would definitely return if visiting Mellieha.

On the Ghadira bay strip Sarah and Family give you the quality service and excellent food you might expect from a 5 star restaurant. The 4 tables outside give a fine view to the Mellieha church.

Me and my husband were having a walk around Mellieha to find a restaurant and we came across this one. We hadn't booked but the lady offered us a table with no problem. We had a lovely bottle of Maltese wine and asked for her recommendation of what to try. When food arrived it was cooked to perfection. Absolutely lovely tastes and cooked fresh. We were full but wanted to try their puddings and just like everything else is was fantastic. I would definitely recommend and we are hoping to go again before we fly back home.
