Preset starter menu with many different tastes. Traditional Maltese food. Relatively limited main course menu. Overall, a lot of traditional food. The place to go if you are hungry. VERY hungry!

Tucked away in the back streets of Birgu is this gem of a restaurant, family run in an 800 year old building. There are menus, but instead let Gaby, the host, guide you through what can only be described as a culinary adventure. There are...More
