It’s a pity the Taproom with its beautiful menu and choice of wines is not matched equally with the service. We received a very cold and rude welcome upon arriving for our reservation as if it was all too much trouble. We were seated and...it took over 30 minutes to receive our first glass of wine. We sat outside and it appeared we were not the only table to be ignored with other customers making requests and waiting for long periods of time. However one group of young men did appear to receive wonderful service and attention from the key waitress! Our food was good but €27 for one small filet of seabass seemed very overpriced. Such a shame as this restaurant has a beautiful appearance inside and the chefs clearly know what they are doing. Full training is needed on how to greet and deal with customers as well as perhaps zoning techniques for outside table service. In summary the food is delicious and the wine good but the service is rude, cold and haphazard.More

Terrible service! We waited for 1 hour for pasta and burger with an empty restaurant. Once asked where our food was the response was rude and unprofessional.

We came here on Monday for lunch so it wasn't busy at all. My husband and I both had the tagliatelle - I had the mushroom one and he had the one with beef. Best pasta dishes we've had in Malta. The sauce and flavours...were amazing!! Unfortunately the mixologist was not there so we couldn't have any cocktails. The waitress was very friendly and had a good sense of humour. We would definitely recommend this place!More

This is the 2nd time I try this place as we decided to give it another chance since food was good the last time we visited.unfortunately,AGAIN, very rude service from the waiter who is also the person to handle the reservations! She should be taught...what client service is!whatever need to be said could be said with a smile & in a friendly tone! Even when serving food, it seemed like she's doing us a favor!!!NEVER AGAIN! Good food and very friendly service is all Valletta so the place is not worth the trouble!More

Very tasty food in general, but the beef tartare is worth a special mention. Cut with the knife and assaisonné à perfection, it was divine. Prices are very correct, but make sure you book in advance.

I was here Two years ago and went back last night with my family. It is still as good as last time. We all enjoyed the food and had a sweet waitress. They made a special children’s dish for my daughter, so it is possible...to go with children. My best recommendations ❤️More

What a lovely place! We really enjoyed the food. We ordered ceviche , which was really tasty and fresh. Then we continued with tagliatelle with beef and the gnocchis, which were so soft and delicious. The service was excellent and the atmosphere really nice and...relaxed. I totally recommend it :)More

Yes, they could. There is an extremely large table in the rear where friends can all sit around. Saw a group of people there all enjoying themselves.
