We ordered cisk, a Maltese beer, and were instead served the cheaper estrella alternative. When I queried this we were told we were wrong (we weren't). Though he... More

We enjoyed our evening meal here so went back for another during our week stay! We liked the atmosphere of the restaurant, welcoming staff and good selection on the menu. The portions were very generous and menu reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit!

This restaurant is always busy, and filled with Maltese people, which is always a good indicator of how good the food is. The set menu is good value, with large portions. Tasty food. Will return for a third time one day!

I wanted to try some rabbit while in Malta and a quick look on here suggested a couple of stand out places, of which this was the closest, so I headed over. It was early evening when I arrived and I sat outside and was promptly given a menu and ordered a beer. I chose the set menu. I'm pretty... More
