This was the first evening of our stay, and this was about the closest to our apartment. What a result! Family-run, which we love, and small, with around 30 covers. The owner worked his socks off, juggling most duties on his own, as he'd apparently been let down by a couple of staff. Very engaging, and did the old "duck"... More

Food was excellent! If you are with a bigger group try to arrive after opening (19:00) otherwise if full, you will have to wait a bit longer than usual. Rabbit was excellent, mushroom strawberry soup was very good. Courses are big and if you will decide to have veggies and chips for side - both are actually good for 3... More

The food is good here but the menu has little choice and you pay extra for vegetables and potatoes. Great place for one night but other places have greater choice at less cost.

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening with a table booked in advance. Once we arrived we were shown to our table and drinks order taken after a few minutes. As a starter I had deep fried calamari in batter. This was good with the batter light and crunchy - portion size was good too. For the main I opted... More

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening and was disappointed by the food which was mediocre. The bread was served cold and in thin bite size slices . I ordered stuffed marrow which was meagrely stuffed, tasteless and served with no sauce. The staff were friendly but they only had 1 bottle of the wine we ordered so we were... More

They serve delicious Maltese food and have great service, they're welcoming and their staff are very kind. We went twice during our stay in Malta and we will definitely be going back!

We were tempted to try this restaurant by the positive reviews here but it turned out to be a disappointing evening. Mediocre food including over salty mussels and fried rabbit, and rubbery duck. Choice of desserts limited to ice cream. Slow service. Plenty of better places around. Give this a miss.

A pleasant restaurant in a side street with a friendly Italian waiter. We both had seabass fillets in lemon & olive oil with a salad, for which we had to wait quite a while but were excellent. Not much choice of desserts – just red velvet cake or ice cream but the cake was delicious and very fresh.

The soup HAS to be tried. Mushroom & Strawberry? Are you kidding.? It's simply delicious! The rest of the food is equally good. Excellent choice of wine. Excellent service. Will definitely be back. Thoroughly recommend. Service also top class buy down to earth. Very friendly family business.
