Ftira - like a flatbread pizza, was what we ordered, and it was just enough for two to share a light snack. A couple of glasses of wine (served by the most beautiful waitress EVER) and wonderful views of the park by the sea was so satisfying. We ate here last summer, I believe I had rabbit and the wife...

The restaurant is just off... More

The first night was unexpectedly excellent food at very reasonable prices – our expectations were low as the restaurant is not highly rated on Tripadvisor and we choose it because of its proximity to our hotel, the outdoor seating overlooking the bay and because its next door neighbour...

Rabbit stew was very tasty and generous. Seafood platter was awesone as well. Large portions and tasted very fresh. Great location. Service was bit dry, but that was bit common in malta

This restaurant did not disappoint. It is set back from but overlooking the water and has great views - very relaxing. The service was excellent - prompt and attentive. The menu has a great range of local dishes and more. We went for local Maltese dishes that were amazing. The seafood pasta was divine. We were always looking at the... More
