It could be one of the disadvantages of eating alone and even going on holiday alone but I couldn't help thinking that they would have preferred it for me not to have been there. So service and attentiveness could really do with improving. Food excellent when it did arrive. Nouveau Cuisine with experimental tastes and food combinations.

Great location and design, but the food was bland and tasteless. Decent service, but not worth the money. Me and my significant other had different meals, but same conclusions in terms of quality.

The food was quite good but there was no atmosphere. We ate inside which might have been a mistake as there was only one other table occupied. The service was slow although the waitress was friendly and helpful.

We visited Al Molo last Saturday and the experience here was perfect from the very start. The staff are polite and friendly and the food is exquisite. Great service and delicious food, we truly enjoyed our night out.

Our meal at Al Molo was the gastronomic highlight of our holiday in Malta in 2013. So, on our return visit this year one of the first things we did was to reserve a table there. But as we discovered, a lot can change in a year and not always for the better. On the evening of our reservation we... More

Went with my girlfriend to celebrate our anniversary and without a shout of a doubt I was not disappointed, relaxing atmosphere complimented with a delicious duck breast and Maltese traditional bragioli. Compliments to the chef
