Food and service great anytime day or night. Big meal or small. Situated in the lovely area of St Julians, Malta. Overlooks the water. Open for breakfast through to dinner.

We were there around 11:30 a.m. And they only serve breakfast meals before 12:00 p.m. (We couldnt get lunch because we were there 30 mins ahead) Anyway we had wonderful meal with great scenery (Egg Benedict with Salmon and English Breakfast)
