The Overflow probibly deserves a slightly higher rating than three, the service is good and there is a large menu to select from. The house wine was very nice, the food was good but not outstanding.

We stayed in Malta for a week recently and visited this restaurant on three evenings, we just loved it, the food is exceptional, can't honestly think of anything negative to say. Can't remember what we had, I just know it was sublime!

Have just returned from a holiday in Malta. The Overflow restaurant is shut for refurbishment and possibly under new ownership which probably explains why their internet/email address is not functioning.

The New Overflow Restaurant, under new management, is located at Triq il-Maskli, Qawra, just a street parallel to Triq it-Turisti. Bright and airy, the restaurant is ideal to grab a bite at lunch time or to order a one to three course in the evening. One will fall in love with the restaurant with its genuine Mediterranean cuisine accompanied by an excellent service.
