I have eaten here many times, it has a menu which will suit most people.
The fresh fish is one of my personal favourites, especially the Sea Bass, the Steak is excellent.
All food is well presented, and cooked fresh for each order.
This family run business has a friendly atmosphere and I'd definitely recommend it to all who visit or live in Malta.

I have eaten here many times and have to say there is nowhere better on the island. The food is well priced and 1st class, all meals freshly prepared to order. From traditional Maltese dishes to FRESH fish the food here is unbeatable. As for the rib-eye steak....... it's steak heaven.
Joey (the owner) and his 2 lovely daughters Shanna and Nini are the perfect hosts and a great laugh.
If you visit Malta without eating here you have seriously missed out on Maltas finest.
I have added 2 photos showing the stunning view to be had while you dine.

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?
