“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful restaurant! The food is delicious - we were a table of 35 people and we all loved it. We had a variety of meals, from meat to fish to pizza and everything was great. The service was also excellent and fast, and we were served by a very nice waitress and waiter who were very pleasant.
The prices are also very good! I'll definitely visit this restaurant again and I totally recommend it to everyone!

“Lovely food”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Restaurant is very welcoming. Fast service and the Rib eye is absolutely amazing! After dining you can enjoy a walk on the promenade. Hassle free to park. Will be going back soon.
Just an advise. Pre book because it is a very busy restaurant.

“excellent all round”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I really enjoy dining at this restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxed and children an play at the playground while waiting. Food is genuine and fresh and above all, very good value for the food served. It is ideal for meeting friends and to dine with children. We had a seafood platter which was exquisite together with bruschetta. All freshly served. The octopus was simply divine. For main courses we had fresh cerna and also fillet of beefs. Excellent fresh food. Both plates where served with chips. roast potatoes and vegetables. A good selection of wines are also available and white wine was served at the correct temperature. Children also ate pizza, which was given as takeaway at the end. A good selection of desserts are also available. Limoncello was served on the house at the end. Parking is not a problem but need to book as the place is very popular.

“Amazing service and value”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We needed somewhere nice but local and this restaurant fit the bill. We also had a requirement for gluten free cuisine and they could offer many gluten free options as well as gluten free pasta. I had a local fish which was incredible! We had complimentary limoncello to finish up with and we even given bones to take home to the dog. Thanks for a great a even.

“A lovely place to eat”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

A big thank you to the staff at the El Catalan on the sea front in Xghajra. We were so well looked after by the lovely staff, the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. I especially enjoyed the pasta dishes and the steak was to die for. You can eat inside or out in a very relaxed atmosphere. On our last night the staff all came to say goodbye which was very nice. I would highly recommend this restaurant but please book in advance on Saturdays and Sundays as local people love this place too. I would highly recommend this restaurant !
