Andrew Pace, prepared 5 course meal last night. He picked amazing wine for us, as well. He is such a talented chef. We started with a delicious sushi with live shrimp and caviar in coconut milk, followed by scallops with langoustine sauce, then black pasta with figs and quail eggs, and finally lamb and steak. At the end we had... More

We ve been in that restaurant last night. We made a reservation online and the answer to confirm the booking was immediate. The food was perfect, different plates, unique tastes that's why it deserves the michelin star. The staff was good and friendly especially the girl who speaks Greek. Big variety of wines. At the end the desserts were amazing.... More

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I spoke to the duty manager on the evening of the 13th November and he recalled your table of 8 youngsters immediately. As you must be aware, the prawn risotto order was cancelled and re-ordered at a later stage and this is the reason it was served slightly later than... More

We went here following a recommendation from a local. It was fabulous from beginning to end. The white wine was chilled to the core, the red was at perfect room temperature. The gin and tonics were crisp and boozy and every mouthful of the carefully crafted food was exquisite. I'd go back to Malta just to sit there looking out... More

Enjoyed a pleasant dinner here on first night in Malta. Fish was as good as always. Wine was good and at good price. One comment was one desert failed to arrive with the others (at least 10 minutes late). We called the manager and he resolved the problem swiftly. All in all fairly good.

I didn't have a booking but turned up and asked for a table later that same evening which was available. Sat outside - the views are great. The food was very good - had carpaccio as a starter and duck for the main. Really enjoyed the whole experience and ambience.

This restaurant is situated overlooking Sliema Bay with the balcony resting over the waves trashing the rocks below. The restaurant is well laid out and has excellent food. It is a little pricey than the average restaurant but the ambience and quality of food are worth it.

My husband and I were unable to secure a reservation at Barracuda for a few days (popular spot!) but we were lucky to be squeezed in on our last night in Malta. The interior was beautiful; we were seated inside and it felt like we were dining in someone's home. I splurged and ordered the expensive ($60+) lobster with goat... More

Premium tastes with lots of fish and lobsters and everything but salads. I asked for it and they said they serve salad only with main course. Petty they don't, because it's too healthy for dinning, with some fine wine. Nevertheless I ordered sweet potato soup, with stratsiatella cheese, tomato and pumpkin.
