We enjoyed many great meals in Malta. One of the criticisms is the portion size. This place is consistent with my comments. Too much food for one, so consider sharing, even though this restaurant stated there is a sharing charge of 3Euro. This was the only time I saw this on a menu in Malta. No, I would not say... More

The service and food were amazing! When we called in for a reservation we asked if they had vegetarian dishes. They made a note of it, and as we turned up and were given the menus, the first question was: 'who is vegetarian?' - a simple note showing attention to the little things. I was offered a selection of options,... More

Love informal space for a chill evening meal. My mum and I went here on our first evening in Malta, and really enjoyed our food. I was a little surprised though that the dessert menu was essentially apple crumble, bread and butter pudding, tiramisu, and ice cream... I felt a bit like I was in a Harvester or something in...

4 of us enjoyed dinner here last night. The highlight of the evening was the great service from Edmund our waiter. He was attentive and knowledgeable. He made the dining experience that much more fun. The four dishes were good, although the beef cheek was a bit tough and fatty. The rabbit and fig was nice, not over the top.... More

Having spent a few days here in Valletta, so pleased we happened across this restaurant for our last evening meal in this wonderful city. Absolutely first rate! Wonderful food, atmosphere and wine. Couldn't fault it or the service we received from the lovely Edmond. If only restaurants at home could replicate....

Friendly staff and appealing menu, food of good standard perhaps not exceptional. Atmosphere suitable especially for couples, a little too dark for my taste.

One of the best restaurants in Malta which has excellent service and the food is reliably always good. Had a delicious goose liver pate, mushroom and truffle risotto and a fabulous tarte tatin on my last visit. Yummy! The prices for both food and wine are good value. The staff are fun and friendly. The location is in the center... More

I came here for what turned out to be a jolly and very hearty lunch, much needed after a hard morning's sightseeing and walking....and yes, it hit the spot! The owner who is also the maitre 'd was so welcoming and friendly, and the food was tasty and plentiful. The venue itself is quirky and charming and I was actually... More
