“Excellent food, service and view!!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Went there with my other half for lunch. The place is done up nicely and the view is amazing; the port and sea. Staff were very polite and very efficient considering that there were many people compares to the number of staff present. They initially served us with complimentary bruschetta and warm bread with garlic butter, then as a starter I had some pasta which was delicious and main course had the rabbit which too was delicious. It is important to note that portions were quite sizable. Will definitely visit again!!!

“Nice view, Good Food.”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere very adequate for a romantic dinner. Superb view and nice place. Was difficult to find in the first place but thats nobodys fault. Had a speciality of the day for starter and main course. Starter was quite on the expensive side paying over 11 Euros for 4 large raviolis, though they were very good. What was not expected is the starter and main course plates were made out of plastic as if we were camping ...:) Overall it was a good experience. Recommended.

“Great position and generally excellent food.”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This restaurant probably suffers from it's position, which also makes it unique! The views from the terrace are really quite superb; gazing out over Mgarr harbour & marina to Malta in the distance, whether by day or by night. But it's secluded position and lack of passing trade removes it from the bustle of the port and unless we were unusual on the Wednesday we dined, it's not busy. In fact, we were the only diners that night, but as a party of 8 plus a child, we were fine with that. Had we been just a couple or maybe four, it would have been dreadfully quiet.
Having said that, the welcome was warm and once you get to understand the owner's sense of humour, the meal was quite good fun. The menu choice was very good and generally speaking, the food was of a high standard - the chicken was rather dry, but mostly the dishes were well prepared, presented and not expensive.
The owner mentioned that they specialise in weddings and that explained a lot. As a venue for such an occasion, it would be really hard to beat. The house music spoke pure 'wedding tracks' and contained songs to suit everyone.
Overall, we had a great evening and were mostly left in peace to enjoy ourselves, which we did.

“Disappointed in the end”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Went to this restaurant last Friday evening with a local discount card which of course the owner decided to join in. I really started to enjoy the experience since the atmosphere is relaxing, beautiful outdoors with a majestic view and great service. The menu is vast and includes special items although it is quite expensive. Our starters were awesome and my fish carpaccio was the best I have ever tasted.
However all of this was reduced to ashes when our mains were served. We ordered 2 fillet mignon rossini, veal and grilled fillet. The veal and grilled fillet were excellent but guess what? The FILLET Mignon (which were covered in Mignon Sauce) were not beef fillet cuts!! These were the larger parts of the rib eye, hammered to smoothen. That explains it all!
I want to ask the owner one question, were we treated like this because we had the discount card or you use this trick often? Be wise and be careful. . . I come from the meat industry and I know what Im saying!!!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT

“Fantastic food in a fantastic location”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We thought this place was good enough to eat there twice. We were made to feel special. Albeit the restaurant was very quiet, but nonetheless I believe in giving credit when due. The food was excellent and the service even better. It has a lovely ambiance, especially for couples. The views over Mgarr harbour are amazing, coupled with smoochy music makes this a very romantic spot. It can be difficult to find. If you walk up past the Grand Hotel, take the steps just at the edge of the hotel on the same side, take a right at the top of the stairs, left at the main road then the next right. Follow this road along, it looks like there is nothing ahead but the restaurant is only a short way and will be on the right hand side. On both occasions we were offered a free drink at the end of our meal. Perfect.
