Last week I was with customers in La Dolce Vita. What an experience!! We ordered as starters the recommendation from the house... A great assortment of very fresh fish dishes. From oysters to delicious mussels over a superb tuna and swordfish carpaccio. As main we took the scorfano in cartoccio. Try it it is worthwhile. Wine selection to die for.... More

Whilst I cannot complain about the food quality and presentation I must say I was a bit disappointed with the waiting staff. We asked for a prosecco which although on the wine list apparently was no longer available - no problem there as these things are understandable although if as they said it will no longer be available it should...

Loved arriving at the restaurant in the lift from the small side street reception, which was decorated with bottles of champagne. Good selection on the menu, but expensive. Food and service were excellent. A lovely evening.

You reach this restaurant by lift to the top floor of a building and the views are great. The service charming and the food very good indeed. It is a little romantic also and we found it a delightful experience.

We have been in Malta for ten days, every night we tried a different restaurant. Best meal in Malta. Food was absolutely fantastic, location also, top floor overlooking Spinola Bay was outstanding too. Need improvement service-wise though.

Two words to describe this place 'Simply Excellent'! We went on a weekday for an unplanned lunch. This restaurant specialises mainly on fish, not much of a choice if you prefer something else. For starters we opted for a fish platter with oysters.....delicious. It was followed by a John Dory , a good portion for two as a main dish...perfectly... More

Like on Fellini's shot the movie in 1959 on the Via Veneto, the Roman street of nightclubs, sidewalk cafes and the parade of the night. The atmosphere which you will find in this restaurant remember a little bit that feeling. Placed over spinola bay one of the most suggestive views in Malta, this restaurant is cute, expresses confort and luxury... More

Found the restaurant difficult to find, in the end it's a door into a foyer then up in the lift. Felt the atmosphere was nothing and the food was good but not brilliant, good to go to but expensive.
