Se stayed in resort in Sept 2016, and had lunch here on several occasions. The food was excellent cooked by Louis (great chef) and Claire looked after us superbly well. Would highly recommend the Bragioli, rabit (both pan fried and stew) and Lampuki (if in season) Overall a very welcoming place to eat!!

Had dinner here one night, but they got my vegetarian dish wrong as they added meat to the dish, they did make me a fresh dish...but put a bit of a downer on the meal. We did stop by during the day a couple of times for snacks and drinks. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly.

What can I say. Partner ordered a prawn cocktail which had no marie rose suace from a lacking menu. Lasagne was dry with no sauce, Bragioli was the same, dry made with tinned peas and carrots, an excuse for Maltese food. What a let down

Claire is such a lovely person and so hospitable, nothing is too much trouble and Louis is an excellent and skilled chef, his homemade burgers are homemade and are delicious, as is the rabbit stew which was huge. We spoke to a couple who had just eaten and he was a chef and was very impressed by the quality of... More

Food was well cooked we tried bragioli and local rabbit stew but found both very average and the stew in particular was very poor value and very bland i wouldnt recommend it.

We ate here for 4 out of 5 nights whilst we were in Malta. The restaurant specialises in traditional Maltese dishes as well as the more usual fare. Claire and Louis are excellent hosts and the food is outstanding especially the octopus. We tried the horsemeat and rabbit as well as the steaks and swordfish. All were excellent. Tucked away...
