We read about Oleander in Lonely Planet and we had a wonderful dinner - three courses of lovely maltese food, a great atmosphere and friendly staff - we will be back!

The head waiter was excellent with an exceptional way of serving the fish without any bones. Food was very good and presentable.

Our evening at Oleander was fantastic. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and puts genuine effort into making your evening as pleasant as possible. The food was very good, with my main course of duck breast with a passion-fruit coulis being particularly spectacular.

Came across this bar and restaurant while staying in a local farmhouse down the road. We had already eaten so asked if they serve drinks only.

Victory Square is surrounded by great restaurants. We had been advised by a friend from Malta to eat here and it was well worth it. We decided on the Beef Olives and they were wonderful. A bottle of local wine went down well too. The staff were helpful and attentive.

We ate at a few of the restaurants on Xaghra square and this was our favourite. The service was quick and friendly and the food delicious. Our waiter was very helpful, explaining all the dishes to use and offering his advice.
