We booked for dinner at this restaurant and got a table as there was a last minute cancellation. The restaurant is on three levels and was established in 1906. The tables are well laid with proper tablecloth and candles as well. It can be a romantic setting as well as a get together with friends.
The waiter explained the menu ( which is on a blackboard) fully. There are lots of interesting dishes and the menu is varied with pork, veal, rabbit, beef and lots of fish dishes. Starters included spaghetti with octopus, fish soup, risotto, fish cakes( but not as you know it), ravioli, pastry to name a few. All prices are reasonable and there
is sure to be something for everyone. There were a few freebies from the chef like the bean, pea and artichoke dips at the start. They were very tasty.
We were too full for dessert but had some coffee and another freebie from the chef in the form of almond halva.
There is also an extensive wine list. We had a Maltese wine which was quite good.
Definitely recommended. Also it would be a good idea to phone up and book. They also open at lunchtime.

This is a family run Maltese restaurant. The kitchen is run by people who a tally care about and have a passion for their food. The menu is locally sourced food which changes as the seasons/ supplies change. Good local wine available and friendly service. The location is just round the corner from all the mediocre tourist eating places. My advice, leave those places alone and join the locals in Rubino to experience authentic Maltese food.

The menu changes daily so you dont know what to expect until you arrive. The waiter explains all the dishes to you so you can choose. I had the lamb shank and my wife had a fish dish. Both were excellent and they cam with nice side dishes. Also had a wonderful dessert.

Our third visit, warm welcome with a good family run feeling. It seems this restaurant is ticking all our boxes because we tend to come back very often. Main reason, good choice of local and Mediterranean cuisine and the vast selection of wine complimenting the tranquillity while you're enjoying the company and being served with great care and passion. Well done and keep it simple to keeps us coming back. Regards Ray
