My partner and I have visited this restaurant a couple of times and simply loved it, on both occasions. Albeit its rather restricted space the ambience is really nice, dishes taste divine especially the Maltese ones (the idea of creating a Maltese platter consisting of Bragoli, Fenek & Maltese sausage was very original!) and the staff is sympathetic and helpful....

We ate here twice the food was that good. We were warmly welcomed on both our visits by the owner and staff working there and we were able to reserve a lovely window view for our second visit. The service was fantastic and we were never rushed (as was our experience in another local restaurant). On both occasions we went... More

We had dinner there with 4 people and tried a variety of appetizers, the fish, the rabbit and vegetarian choices. All were very happy with their food and absolutely stuffed by the end of... More

If you want to go for dinner, and see Malta on the same time, this is a good place. Well situated, great staff and kitchen. Not the cheapest restaurant, but a very authentic cuisine and still worth it!

We discovered this restaurant on our first trip to Malta in 1993 and have always made a point of going there at least once during subsequent holidays. Last week we were there twice, once for the combined platter of rabbit, bragioli (with bacon instead of beef) and Maltese sausage – generous well-cooked portions and very filling but delicious, and again...

The food was just ok. Nothing to remember or enjoy. They do not use garlic or chilly in their dishes. The service was good.

Thankyou for your review. I remember you asked for Garlic & also Chilly when food was served & you asked me for more Garlic & also chilly for which we served you there & than. Nearly all Maltese dishes are cooked with Garlic but sorry we only serve Chilly on demand as it's not in our culture. Off course for... More
