“Excellent, both food and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2011

We had a meal here twice. Both times excellent. This food had flavor unlike the rest we tasted on Malta! Nice dishes, right prices, fantastic people (both Natasha and Jenny). The food is presented in a way that it is a pleasure to look at! Locals like to eat here as well. If ever in Qawra we would say: go there !!! Wish we could have tried more dishes! Thank you for two lovely evenings !! Reino and Hans (from Holland)

“Different and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2011

Like the previous reviewer we also visited on our anniversary. Duo is very different to most restaurants in Qawra with the food for sharing concept. The Scottish waitress was very friendly and suggested ordering four or five dishes. Each one we had was delicious especially the goats cheese and the monkfish and what about the key lime pie? Fantastic!!

“"Thought we had died and gone to heaven"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2011

We visited Duo for our anniversary and were not disappointed! We were greeted on arrival and the menu was explained to us. There is an extensive starter choice and we were told that many people opt to have several of the starters as a tapas style meal. We chose bruchetta which was the best we have ever tasted. The spicy lamb parcels drizzled with a balsamic vinegar glaze was fantastic as were the pork and mushroom patties. The humous was delicious, so much of it. In fact all the portions were generous and wonderful value for money at 2 - 3 euros each! The staff were so attentive without being overbearing. Jenny, a lovely girl from Edinburgh, was especially friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed it so much we returned the following evening. Highly recommended and definitely worth visiting

“One of the best experiences ever...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2011

We found this restaurant by pure accident and it turned out to be one of the most memorable restaurants we've ever visited. Even though we visited in March we sat outside, we were quickly given nice warm polar blankets 'just in case' and this was just a start of the personal touch the restaurant owners and staff gives you. We returned three or four times... would I return for the fifth time? Absolutely! I'd love to have this place in my city.
Food-wise, I can recommend absolutely everyting, warn bread with the smooth dip, grilled octopus, home-made humous, steak... anything you find on the menu is worth trying... pricing is very reasonable and the staff were really friendly and very welcoming. If you are looking for a quiet evening just for two or a vigorous dining out with your friends, this is the place to go!

“Always a satisfying and pleasant experience"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2011

I have been to Duo many times. It is hard to find another place in Malta with the perfect balance of genuine fresh food, reasonable prices and great attentative staff. The simple yet ample menu ensures you can always try something different. Food presentation shows a rare attention to detail as does the ambience which is clean and welcoming.
I recommend this for any tourist who wants to experience true hospitality, and to any Maltese who wants a change from the usual pizza/pasta/fast food dining concept.
It is truly a pleasure to dine here.
