We ate here on a quiet Sunday evening. The buffet food was exceptional, with a variety to suit every taste. As we had run the Malta Half marathon during the day we had worked up a good appetite and we certainly weren't disappointed with the quality, variety and flavour of the food.

This is a very good restaurant in a well run hotel, bang in the heart of Sliema. The only negative comment is that I find it has no atmosphere. But otherwise, yoiucan be suer of getting a very good meal.

The food is poor for the price, service is also poor. The food was not hot and is overpriced. No real attention to guests at this place.

I have recently returned from the Palace Hotel,Sliema where the Tabloid is situated. I found this restaurant to offer a varied menu for both breakfast and Dinner. There was 4 theme nights a week,but there was always enough different food on offer,if you didnt like the Theme of the day. Although the service was self service,it was leisurely.
