Just a short walk from Ggantija Temples and the Windmill this restaurant was recommended in our Guide Book and how right they were. We had fabulous home made Seafood Ravioli, local beer, fantastic desserts and great coffee in a very peaceful location (in March at least!).

We ate at Oleander in early March. It was quite cold so outdoor seating was not possible and the restaurant was full when we arrived. The staff were wonderful and advised us that a table should be available relatively soon. We started with drinks outside and then moved inside for our meal within 30 minutes. The food was delicious and... More

I always come back for the 3-meat dish because of the quail (without bones). Nice place for a drink too.

We had an enormous and delicious dinner in this characterful and cosy-feeling restaurant in the main square of Xaghra. The owner is clearly passionate about food and enjoys sharing the experience with his guests. We'd had a slightly stressful day, but this meal definitely restored our spirits and energy.

We were early..12.30..so first ones there. We ordered a nice fish starter to share and both had the porcini and pork risotto for mains.... More
