One of the ‘Originals’ probably the oldest in Sliema. A great traditional Maltese bar that serves good drinks, food and a friendly welcome. You may find it difficult to get a seat here though as it’s very popular with both locals and tourists, go early!

Our first drink and food in Malta. Great to try the local beer CISK served as a full pint. The outside seating is at a bit of a premium but well worth it as it has a good atmosphere. Would recommend the Maltese ciabatta highly....More

Superb service by local staff. Good selection of beers and wines and food. Top location for just sitting outside and watching the world go by. Reasonably priced given the location too so would recommend to anyone to drop in.
