We have visited here before and thought we would try it again. Was it as good? Most definitely 'YES'. The ambience is first class, the staff most welcoming and the food EXCELLENT. We look forward to our next visit.

Having eaten 3 times at the Kings Own at 274 Republic Street we were prevailed upon to try the older established parent restaurant. Good range of dishes including the inevitable rabbit and octopus. Also beef and lamb. Good service. Reasonable prices. Maltese wines recommended.
