Reserved online with a request for a view for a birthday treat and the restaurant honoured with a great table. Service was friendly and efficient, the wine choices great and the food well worth the price. Highly recommend the fish soup and starters and the duck for non fish eaters. Overall a great night in a lovely atmosphere. Worth the... More

I like food I like good service but I also like not too much fuss. I hate it when the descriptions and preparation of the food is more substantial than the food itself. I like food more simple and less fussy. So I gave them 3 but could be 4 with less fuss.

Not worth it, really not worth it, not even for the nice view. It is supposed to be one of the top restaurants in Malta but we were utterly disappointed. Greasy food, bad taste, slow and almost disinterested service... not recommended! Instead I would recommend anyone to try any of the fantastic restaurants in the Portomaso bay, just 8minutes walk...

This is a restaurant that maintains standards. It has upmarket decor and this is complemented by the smart staff. The food is not cheap but is excellent. The fish soup is an experience! We chose to share a Chateaubriand. A good choice. It was cooked perfectly, large and rare. This was not the cheapest meal of our holiday but definitely... More

The steak was served with vegetables that must have been cooked then kept in water for several hours.Horrible.Then I had cheese platter. No one took the time to explain what they... More

We were lucky as we were given one of the balcony tables so we had a gorgeous view of the sea. Service was excellent and the food delicious as always.

Thought to treat me to a good experience but oh no, Service patronising but especially poor. I do not expect in place like it present itself to see waitress carrying glasses as a bunch like in a pub and with her finger all in. pretend to be a fine dining but all the experience was like a cheap bistro

We went with colleagues for a business dinner. Unfortunately it's overpriced with no any return in food quality or taste. Beef tartare was so full of pepper that I could hardly feel the taste. Grouper tartare was tasteless. Fish soup was so-so. Wines are priced 1.5-2x higher from other good places in the area but they even don't have big... More
