We were in a party of seven. Every one of us enjoyed our meals. My wife is very fussy how here steaks are cooked, and it was perfect first time. I had the sea bass which they offered three different cooking methods. The decor &...More

First of all, you get a super view of St Julian’s and the bay, the food isn’t bad and the service is ok too. The only thing that lets it down, is it feels like it’s trying too hard and the decor is verging on...More

Very welcoming staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Fish was tasty and beautifully cooked. A tad expensive but fresh fish generally is across Europe it seems. The staff were helpful and very kind to our young children (who were out far too late)....More

It is located in the center, the terrace look at the bay. The standard is medium high, so are the prices and the food. The Menu is researched, price level is high. Not indicated for the kids. I recommend it
