We got there for our last dinner in Malta. As we had made no reservation, we had to wait a bit, but there is a sitting room near the entrance where one can have a drink, and the waiting time did not exceed what we had been told. Once at the table we got two starters: a bruschetta and a... More

We turned up at half past 8 on a Tuesday evening and there were no free tables (I would recommend to book before going) we waited for about 15 minutes for a table but menus and drinks were brought to us in the waiting area. We were then shown to our table and ordered straight away and people were still... More

Went here for evening meal. The food was delicious - the chicken burger I chose was possibly the best I have ever had, perfectly cooked and very tasty. My wife had ravioli which was also excellent. The staff were very friendly and service was exemplary. I recommend booking as it was very busy and I doubt you would get a... More

Only had a week in Malta and chanced popping here on our only Saturday night - we were lucky to get a table just after 7pm but we were politely advised they'd need it back by 8:30. This wasn't a problem with prompt service but too fast that we didn't have time to enjoy the delicious food. So, when we... More

Really good value place. The pizza is very good with choices such as salmon. Best ever I tasted with avocado shavings. Good service and location too.

place is very popular so would recommend booking in advance or getting there early. The food was really good and there were great views out to sea from the tables.

Went here for both lunch and dinner during our week here. Beautiful views over the bay and really tasteful decor. Food was consistently good with plenty of meat and fish dishes. You can easily get a bus here, it's very near the stone steps into the bay. Would totally recommend
