Been going to this restaurant for many years now and the food is great. Wide range of cuisines available including traditional Maltese food for anyone who wants to enjoy the great tastes of Malta.Their Sunday roasts are amazing. In an excellent location near the jetty where you can sit and watch the sun set and the boats pull in. Great location to sit and watch the world go by, very relaxing.
Great service every time. Enjoy talking to everyone who works there and have become friends overtime. All members of my family love this restaurant not only do we enjoy the tasty food but also enjoy the company.I have introduced this restaurant to a friend and she also loved the food and experience...
Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who stays in or around Bugibba.

After walking all the way till the end of the prom, we saw this little place.
We sat outside and checked the menu, ordered a few beers while waiting.
Then we ordered fresh grilled fish and squid and a white wine.
When it arrived (we had to wait a while, but we were told about it), it was like having the Med served in your table.
Amazing quality and freshness, great wine and some nice desserts, good coffee and grappa.
Best place I've eaten in Malta.

The owner, Joe, must be doing something right, as he has been here 32 years!
We were wandering around Bugibba and remembered this restaurant from many years ago. It hadn't changed. Sit outside with a cold one and work up an appetite.
It was good talking to Joe about old times and the "What happened to so-and-so?" chat.
Friendly, cheap and good food. What more do you want?

St Pauls bay , Qwara etc is a bit of a foddie desert with english breakfast and down grade Chinese its staple diet. Indeed even the local Mcdonalds fails its own corporate standards!

This restaurant is down by the bay, small and family owned, wine good, food excellent and you can sit in or out. Whilst much of the rest of Malta seems to have forgotten it sits four square in the middle of the Med , here they actually serve fish !!!! Believe me a rarity and they serve it very well.
Highly recommend

We've been to Malta once (sometimes twice) a year for the last four years. We always pop in to see Joe, when we're down by St Paul's Bay. We go back year after year because we're made to feel so welcome. Sitting outside with a cisk, watching the world go by, overlooking the sea is perfect. The restaurant specialises in fish, which my parents-in-law tell me is always divine. As non-fish eaters, my hubby maintains that Joe does the best fillet steak he's ever had. I usually have a vegetarian pasta dish, which is delicious. We've often just popped in for a snack as it's great to just be able to order a sandwich or a toastie at lunchtime. The view is fabulous, the service is excellent and the cisk is always cold. Perfect! We can't wait until our next trip.
