Pleasant staff,fresh food but as buses struggle to pass each other and traffic revs and horns honk it's not so relaxing for our liking.

As a frequent visitor to l'escargot, I find it ridiculous that anyone can criticize the owners, staff or the quality of food.

So friendly, absolutely delicious and much better than the surrounding (more expensive) restaurants. The Lasagne tastes just like my Maltese Nana's. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Mellieha.
