Be it fish or meat this restaurant continues to serve exquisite food. Service is efficient and cordial. Tried the pasta Caruso, to die for and will have again. Specials are always worth a try and you won’t be disappointed.

This restaurant recommended by our receptionist at La Falconeria was brilliant. The food at good restaurants in Malta is good, and by the time we got to Palazzo Preca, my wife was "full". I had the octopus in a pan - the juices were so...More
