The place is so tiny, it feels as though you’re at someone’s house. Really sweet place, lovely environment, great location, good choice of music & the freshest fish available on the day. A one man show - hats off to Simone, everything that he made...More

Freshness & good taste is the motto of this little restaurant going down Wied iz-Zurrieq. They serve only fish & they do it right. We went there for lunch & were warmly greeted by a smart lady who also politely served us throughout. We shared...More

I am sure, because the cook will personally compose your meal according to what you like. They serve mainly fish. I don t think they have glutenfree pasta, so just eat your veggies, sauces and fish.

Not a vast selection but sure to find very decent choice to go with the food. But the experience is mainly to do with the food!
