We had fish soup, pasta and mixed fish/seafood. They were ok, but not extraordinary. Only the mussels (part of the mixed fish/sea food) I could rate at 4-5 stars. The atmosphere and serving were good.

Ate here during a holiday to Malta in November, and really enjoyed the delicious variety of fresh seafood on offer here. Enjoyed the garlic prawns, mussels, octopus and calamari.
