We ordered burger with brie, mushroom and cranberry sauce and pizza rucola. Food quality very good; the pizza dough, toppings, the homemade burger, the crispy fries. Deserts also very good, tried the chocolate fondant and peanut butter cheesecake. I recommend you share the latter because it is quite heavy, you wont be able to finish it after having eaten (maybe if you had a salad before yes, but it is very unlikely you'd order it in that case).

Service is very relax. For example, the bread and butter arrived before drinks.

One suggestion would be to introduce a smart watch or some other thing to notify waiting staff that the food is ready. The chef was constantly shouting "service" and it is not enjoyable when seated close to the kitchen.

Decent price for the overall experience

Having got back to Zebbug and been home for a few days cabin fever had set in and it was time to get out. The first impression was not too good as we were the first diners to arrive. However given that we were served relatively quickly. The Carpaccio was good and an excellent starter. The main filet of beef was not cooked to order medium rare but more medium and the pork ribs were fine. Not an exceptional meal could not say it was bad but a little more effort from the staff could lift this place to a better experience.

Visited for their gluten free pizza. Service was very slow and I was served a black pizza, yes really, a black pizza which was so badly burnt it was not edible. Will never set foot into Wood and Coal again.

We had gotten there at 7:30ish & it wasn’t that busy. We were shown to our table & left there waiting for at least 5/6 minutes before we were given any menus. It was again another 10 minutes before we were asked if we wanted to order some drinks.
First impression of beer prices was completely over priced. Especially considering none were on draught. However we ordered a ‘craft’ one.
Once dinner was served, it was clear that the quality of the steak they use was of a poor standard. This is a shame since it seems to be a steakhouse. However the other dishes were very nice!!
We then asked for another beer at the start of the meal. It was towards the end of the meal the beer had come out...
Overall, experience was good with a few minor issues.

I was honestly sceptical after reading all the not so good reviews but I was pleasantly surprised that both the food and the service were really good! Our table of 6 had a mix of foods from pizzas (which were all liked), grilled meats (which were loved) salads and burgers. In our opinion, there were all very well cooked and were ready for us in a very short time (there were about 4/5 other tables with people at the time).
Desserts were marvelous! Will definitely return.
