The entrance already hints at a quality place. It's a huge place with separate rooms and nice interior design. I don't like heavy menus, but this one was definitely appetizing. The service and the taste are above the standards. Get ready to be spoiled.

However going round in Malta streets you can wear whatever you want. No one will bat an eyelid if you are wearing a cropped top and very short skirt! :)
