Enjoy a meal at wonderful surrounding of the sea and port.Before entering the Restaurant hopefully you have walked at the seaside watching multi coloured fisherman boats in the warm sunshine. After our return to this Restaurant we asked for fresh fish ( catch of the day) and got presented it on a plate. Then( which is our suggestion) we asked... More

I am surprised by the latest reviews about this restaurant. We have been going for years and never had a bad experience, service is professional and food is always to our satisfaction. We had lunch there twice in the last four weeks, first the two of us, then last week we brought a british couple who visit Malta several times... More

We booked this place to have lunch with a friend who lives locally. What a disappointment and embarrament. I started with a Brockmans, I asked for slimline tonic. Was told they don't have slimline but the full fat version is very good. I opted for a Sprite zero. The drink wasn't served in the correct glass or with the correct... More

Calamari was coated in uncooked flour. When brought to the waiters attention he just wanted to argue about it. Followed by seabass that was cold. Again an argument which the waitress tried to turn to my local companion and say "tell him how it should be". Food taken away with a promise of a freshly cooked dish, returned a few... More

I took my girlfriend to this restaurant (at her request) and was overwhelmed by the fine tasting food, fantastic service and really nice atmosphere. It was a birthday meal that she will surely remember for a long time, but one that I will definitely not forget either! As we were there during the week and were able to get a... More

Best service yet for us picky people on the islands. Impeccable presentation and general dining experience. Relaxed but a great value. Excellent food and honest freshness. Reasonable wine list and personalised service.

Situated in the picturesque village of M'Xlokk. Tables are laid out with care. The service is very good and polite. Clean ambiance decorated with good tastes. The antipasti are so appetising especially the prawn carpaccio. The fish soup is excellent and the pasta with lobster is delicious. My husband had fresh fish and it was cooked to perfection. The roast... More

We came here after market closing - we were the last ones that got service from kitchen while it closed for afternoon. We all ordered fish soup and my fish soup was searching the fish - there was nothing - soup was good though. Service was excellent and was working fine. We perhaps need to come here to test this...
