Superb restaurant and food great location over the sea stunning views of the harbour at night. Great service so good and helpful waiter you must get in early or book the night before. Parking a car is atrocious and nearly impossible

I have visited this restaurant many times when visiting Malta and I can't praise this restaurant highly enough. From the spectacular views from the outside eating area to the wonderful staff and food, it is always a treat to visit.

Friendly place with beautiful view, professional staff and nice Italian meal. Portions are not big (for Malta), but quite generous for Europe.

We booked an outside table and were not disappointed. The views were wonderful and we had a great family meal. Good choice of Italian food served by friendly staff despite being a very busy night. Would recommend you book in advance as very popular.
