After having a delicious dinner at this cosy little restaurant we really want to recommend it to everyone! When we found out that the owner also cooked everything himself and he also served what seemed to be a birthday party at the same time we were truly impressed by the service but most of all the excellent food and the...

As you enter this cosy rustic restaurant you are greeted by the owner/chef Albert who after seating you whisks off in the kitchen to begin cooking mouthwatering plates from rib-eye to lamb shanks and local fish in season.

On 13 Feb Albert prepared rabbit like we've never tasted before. It was thoroughly enjoyable. Bear in mind that it's likely to be served resembling what it is, rather like having a whole chicken for Sunday lunch. Prior to the rabbit, we enjoyed a Maltese platter. Try it.

We were looking for authentic Maltese cuisine, but we didn't want to take the half an hour bus ride back to Valletta from St. Paul's Bay, so we found this restaurant on trip advisor. It sounded like exactly what we were looking for, and indeed it was. No bigger than a minute, they may seat a maximum of 24 people.... More

IF you like Maltese style cooking this is the place to go. Menu is very small but every single item on the menu is an absolute gem.The steamed beef, the bragioli and the rabbit are all top notch really. Would be wise to call Albert the chef and the owner to book not to be disappointed as place is small... More

We went to the restaurant ... and it is a hidden gem. The menu is all fresh and genuine. This is Maltese cooking in home made style. It is a must visit for everyone, both Maltese and Non.
