Our food was cooked perfectly, especially my steak which was perfection with very fresh ingredients. Very friendly service, good portion size, cosy and a terrific success especially for those staying in Senglea. Impressed with wine selection. All in all great value.

It was a sunny sunday when we felt hungry and stopped at this cosy restaurant. We had the spaghetti marinara and my wife had the tortelli lobster. They were really amazing, and very reasonable prices. Really recommended.

This place is a standout among the Senglea waterfront restaurants. A really tasty octopus stew, beautifully presented, and wonderful steamed mussels, along with an excellent dessert. Service was pleasant and unobtrusive. Can definitely recommend.
