Family of five had a great meal, and excellent wine. The chef visited our table before we ordered to answer any questions. She ended up making a custom pasta dish for our picky thirteen year old. All of our dishes were excellent.

Excellent food, excellent service, outstanding menu and exceeding customer expectations. This restaurant is one of the best in Valletta. Menu is changed daily and the passion for food shows in the dish presentation.

Everything was top notch - the food, the service and the drinks. Had a fantastic oxtail linguine starter and an incredibly fresh sea bass main. Dessert was incredible too! Highly recommended!
