I often wait for a second visit before reviewing a restaurant, just to make sure it wasn't a one off experience. On my first visit, there were just two of us and I was impressed by the ambience, food and service. this time there were fourteen of us and I am pleased to say that the results were the same....

I've been to this restaurant about 3 times. I enjoyed my stay every time. Excellent food, service and view. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. I particularly liked the mushroom soup served in Maltese bread.

Great ambiance, good food & service. Little surprised at the end, when the waitress rounded the bill and taking extra money as tips without telling us when we paid via credit card. In our opinion it was a bit rude at least we would have appreciated if she asked us first or having it pre-written on the bill. For sure... More

Lo Squero is (was) excellently located as far as views go, but the location is somewhat problematic for people who do not have their own transport. However you get there, the restaurant's excellent pasta is the reason to do so; this is one of those restaurants where quality and quantity converge – and that's well worth a trip to the... More

Casual restaurant for the traveler and the local. The starter and the fish menu is weak, however I have had the most delicious piece of meat with the mushroom sauce here. Will definitely be back some day. That's thanks to the chef! The service was typical Maltese standard (wait at least 15 mins to ask for something) and another 15... More

We had eaten there on June 6 while staying at the Grand Excelsior near by. The downstairs was open and we had a beautiful view & excellent food. We really enjoyed it and decided to make a reservation for the following week for our 40th anniversary. When we got there the upper balcony was open and again we had a... More

The situation of the restaurant is excellent, in the other side of Valletta waterfall and in front of the Manoel island. You CBS choose fishes in the restaurant, but also italian style "pastas" which are very tasty. You can take the "Caravaggio " red wine, it is told to be a merlot, but it is 14.5 degrees....there is also a... More
