We have dinner here one evening, the service was excellent and the food fantastic. It has all the usual but is very good for Maltese food. The sea bream was superb.

We had a wonderful dinner there last night. Both food and service were great! I had the tarragon chicken and my husband had the pork filet and dessert we shared was the date pastry - wonderful! We also enjoyed the broccoli and spinach! Fun evening!

Cute little family- run restaurant behind the Golden Tulip Hotel. Vey nice Maltese cuisine with friendly service. The knight outside the restaurant's door adds to the ambiance of being in Malta. You won't be disappointed and can get a truly authentic meal here.
