Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were back here with our friends from Malta after a year away and we had a really good lunch in very pleasant surroundings with a view over the boats in the harbour. Food was fine - sea bass, seafood pasta and risotto were all...enjoyed. Prices are very fair for the quality and the location and we look forward to returning.More

We found this restaurant by chance after being turned around from another one due to fully booked space. The meals surprised us very pleasently. The waiter recommended me a nice vegan dish, my husband was satisfied as well with his tuna spaghetti. The desserts were...good as well. The location is very nice, right in the harbour of Mgarr. The outdoor terrace is air conditioned which created a lovely ambience with sea breeze on a hot day. Very nice and relaxing place.More

Great vegan meal! We are both vegan and we're walking past and asked a waiter if there was anything for us on the menu. The waiter was so friendly and helpful and went through the menu with us and pointed out several dishes that were...either vegan or could be adapted for us so we took a table right by the harbour. We ordered the soup of the day which was pumpkin and the cavatti alla norma (fresh pasta with tomato and aubergines). While we waited they brought us fresh bread and bruchetta which was a decent starter sized portion! The soup was divine! And topped with croutons, the pasta was equally delicious but after the bruchetta, soup and pasta we were stuffed! Both the soup and pasta were huge portions. After dinner the waiter also brought us home made limoncello on the house. Overall an honestly wonderful experience, we highly recommend especially for vegans who's options are a bit more limited at other restaurants in the harbour.More

The pros : quick service, freshly prepared dishes, located on the port but in a side street. Nice staff very accommodating with our late arrival. The cons : taste of most dishes was not as good as expected (compared to other Sicilian restaurants in Malta)....Layout of the restaurant is quite basic.More

We enjoyed our visit here after a long time a way. We were joined by friends from Malta so the location of the restaurant (walking distance from the ferry) was ideal. Service was fine and we all enjoyed our meals. The seabass was excellent and...the pasta was good. Prices are very fair for a restaurant of this kind and views are good if you can get a table near the windows looking out towards the harbour.More

On a Wednesday evening we decided to try this restaurant. It was busy, but they seated us at a table a few minutes before 9pm (I checked the time for a completely unrelated matter). They immediately gave us the menus, listed the specials of the...day, and quickly brought us the water that we order. After that... nothing. The waiters kept walking past our table without even looking at us. After about 20 minutes we loudly called a passing waitress, who then could no longer pretend that we did not exist. We placed our orders and, guess what?, same story as before. After 30 minutes I was ready to leave, however my wife wanted to make another try. She managed to stop the same waitress as before and we asked what happened to our dinner. The waitress apologized for the delay (at least that) and told us that the food would be ready in 10 minutes. My son's spare ribs arrived a few minutes later, because they were (obviously) pre-cooked and only needed to be plated. After a while we told him to start eating. A while later, my order and part of the sides were delivered. Once again, I waited to see if my wife's food would come, but no luck. My wife's order and the rest of the sides arrived when I was already halfway through my food. From the moment we sat down to when everyone got their food, more than an hour had passed. When we paid, I mentioned that to the waiter and, instead of an apology, he just told us that it wasn't true. Just unbelievable. We had to pick up our other son and we were already late, so I just paid and left fuming. I understand that the restaurant was busy, but if they can't serve their customers in a timely fashion, then they should not seat them at a table. Incidentally, the food was ok, but honestly I can't recommend this restaurant after this experience.More

From the moment we walked in the male waiter had an attitude towards us. He was rude and no customer service skills at all. All of our food that came out looked wonderful and that’s as good as it got. I had the clams and...they were tasty until I found one that was black and slimy. Then two other family members ordered the filet of fish, and they were full of bones, the final dish ordered was the Mixed seafood grill and the Swordfish was over cooked and very dry, the prawns were under cooked and RAW. The female waitress was great! Don’t waist your money at this place. Never going back ever.More

Four of us went for dinner yesterday evening. We ordered fish platter starter for 2 x2 (these we were told were €26 each) As this was quite filling, we then ordered 4 pasta starter 2x Vongole, 1x Beef fillet, and 1x Sea food. We had...3 deserts, 2 bottles of wine @ €25 euros each and a bottle of water. The bill came to €187 for the four of us, which was effectively 8 starters! Will not go back, there are much better restaurants for a lot less!More
