We had a very good lunch here with excellent pasta Norma(aubergine/ricotta), pasta Farouk(prawns/curry) and creme caramel. The red wine wasn't great though.

I took my wife for our Valentine dinner. The place was very well decorated for the occasion with a beautiful romantic atmosphere. They offered a Valentine set menu or the normal a la carte menu. We opted for the Valentine menu. Good selection and food was all very good and abundant and so was the service. Very good value for... More

We never expect to be warm when we go anywhere in winter but this place was pleasantly toasty :) staff were all very friendly and patient with my multiple requests. Food was all spot on and decent portion sizes. Tiniest gripe was that the background music was a tad too loud at times and I had to resist the urge... More

This place was a real find. Only minutes away from our hotel, the ambiance, food and service were all exceptional. They go out of their way to cater for particular diets as well as offering the traditional Maltese fare. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Very rarely priced, too!

Spot on! No criticisms at all. Wonderful service, food, ambience, comfortable and I would eat here every day if I could. Love the attention to detail, the specials on a mini-easel, free bruschetta as an entree - wonderful birthday dinner :)

We came to this restaurant by recommendation from our host at the place we're staying at, you won't regret the experience. High quality local food combined with refined customer experience, great music and a breathless panoramic are the ingredients of this remarkable restaurant.
