We were super lucky to get a place here for our first dinner in Valetta. And outside! We couldn't ask for more. The food was excellent, super tasty. We got the calamari and the rabbit liver for starter, and then the rabbit and pasta as...a main. All was absolutely great. Besides the food the service is lovely. Anibal made our night even more perfect! Do not hesitate to drop by for a dinner, but make sure to make a reservation, totally worth it!More

Stunning! I was able to sit outside (only 2 tables), the staff were great and really helpful, and the food divine. I’m still thinking of the porcini with cream sauce over pasta. It’s small so a rezzie is imperative.

Accommodated at last minute for my wife and I and what an experience! The food, wine and service was truly amazing (and on par with Aki’s the night before!). The beef/mushroom pasta my wife had was delicious and the lobster I had was the best...ever! Coffee, liqueur and Service best in Malta, if you love great food and service then you must visit here! 10/10 and thank you for best meal ever!!More

We found this restaurant last night and it is a little gem. If you are in Valletta find this place book a table and enjoy. The owner is the chef and every plate he serves is first class. My starter of mussels and clams which...i have in many restaurants was the best i have ever had. Perfect. Every dish we have had is great and to the standard of fine dining but at very reasonable prices. Service is first class They are always full so call and book a table and then …………… enjoyMore

We visited last night and had the best meal! As a starter my husband had prawn pasta - followed by ribeye as a main course. I had two starters as a main course - prawn Thermidor ravioli and mozzarella, aubergine & tomatoes. The food was...delicious, as was the wine and the service was fantastic all reasonably priced at just under €80. I’d highly recommend this restaurant!More

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor whilst I was in Valletta. Unfortunately I hadn’t realised how popular it would be. However after emailing and telephoning the restaurant, they accommodated us that evening. We had nothing to go on but the reviews we’d read. In...the first instance the man answering the phone, who I now know as Michael and the owner, was friendly and helpful. He advised me the only table he had was outside near the road. I accepted and it was perfect. We were instantly welcomed on arrival. The food and wine were superb. The menu is small but there are also specials. The chef came out and spoke with us, making us feel very welcome. We were also lucky enough to have his company at the end of the evening and had the pleasure of meeting his wife, Rita. What a find this was, what a restaurant and we will definitely return again! You MUST BOOK WELL IN ADVANCE. Thank you Michael and Rita. It was a pleasure. Frances and Anthony with the twins 😍.More

We had the most delicious meal here. It’s a beautiful building and the food matches it. We were made to feel instantly welcome by the staff, they were kind and helpful through and the chef was lovely too. We both had a pasta dish and...thoroughly enjoyed them. Great selection of wines too. A great find.More

Went to this restaurant with my wife as she had been to it a year before with my mother in law. If you want a full package for the evening meal, this is a place to go! Mike, the owner/chef adds personal touch and visits...every table. The food id excellent. Service is superb and the waiters are courteous, the musician plays his violin with a touch of heart, he actually plays for Malta Philharmonic! Staff will explain to you about food/drinks you want to order. You will not be rushed in any way. You are looked after that for that meal as you own the floor. The chef will remember as we joked about drinking sparkling water (Llanllyr SOURCE) from Wales as we were also from Wales! You will have a memorable evening without a doubt! Please book in advance!More

After few not pleasant experiences in town we decided to try a more local looking restaurant in Valletta. And it was really really impressive! The service was perfect from the beginning to the payment, they have a small menue but the main dishes were really...excellent. And you really should go for the lobster pasta or the sea bass! we ordered the lobster pasta and it couldn´t have been better. The chef came then to us and talked a little with me and my friends. This is not just a restaurant, it is a social event that makes your vacation perfect!More
