We arrived without any expectations and found a little gem. The staff were very attentive and fun. The complimentary starter was a very nice touch. I had fried rabbit. Wow such a lovely flavour. My husband had the Mediterranean platter and enjoyed it very much. We will return

Friday evening turned out to be very busy with all tables occupied. The waiter and waitress did an amazing job considering the amount of customers they had to attend to. We shared a starter between 2 as we were not so hungry to manage a 3 course meal. The food was good well presented and a regular size portion. The... More

Place is very cosy, staff friendly and helpful and food was amazing. We had seafood platter, seafood linguine, rabbit pasta. All was great, seafood linguine definitely something to recommend. We even got a starter plate to share for free with traditional bean spread, sausage, local cheese, some crackers, bruschetas and Maltese bread.

Let me start by saying that our waiter was very pleasant. We had the fish platter as the starter which was fine but not excellent containing one giant prawn, one larger squid leg, a few smaller squids and some mussels. For main course we had, what I think was, entrecote and rabbit. Dishes were large and the food tasted fine... More

Was looking forward to eat there at my first night in Malta after reading at Tripadvisor. Probably, Maltese food was not for us, so we left our plates unfinished and didn't leave very happy. We ordered Maltese platter and pasta with rabbit. Rabbit meat was a bit hard to chew. Service and place was okay.

Fried Rabbit and Veil Stuffed with Ricotta was meh. The rabbit was bland and a little dry. The veil was tough but flavoursome. The staff were almost friendly but very rarely sighted.
