I had two evening meals here during November. The food was really good, particularly the Maltese sausage and mushroom stew. The staff were very efficient and friendly, but my only criticism would be that, the tables were bare, so it was like dining in a works canteen. Even a paper table cloth would have made a difference.

Everywhere I went in Sliema, people are so friendly and the staff here were no exception. Great place to eat and fantastic views. Option of eating insude or outside.

Normal restaurant. Though it was a bit without character. It is probably fun to go there and have a drink since there was a football game on.

We came here last night after a long day on Gozo. We had done a reccy on one of our afternoon walks. It is a huge place and as out of season fairly hard to fill. There are lots of different options to eat inside out side, front back etc. We ate inside There were two waiters that attended to... More

Nice location with good food, shame the service could not keep pace - rather lethargic and disinterested. Enjoyed the unusual beef olives which included and egg - new one on me!

While using the Preluna Beach Club we are lunch here. The service was rather slow, despite the restaurant being relatively quiet and we paid 3.50€ for fries which were exceptionally greasy and came in the smallest bowl I have ever had fries served in, so was left a little disappointed with this. Don't know if it was due to end-of-season-syndrome,... More

Not a bad place all in all. Good for lunch by the sea with reasonable prices and perfect for our location at the Preluna Hotel. It would appear staff consists of rookies and/or students, but it doesn't deter from the service. Only thing I would say (maybe it's a Maltese thing) is that if we wanted service we had to... More

This restaurant was a TGI's before and that they haven't changed the decor in the years since should tell you a lot about the place. We sat inside because the wind was so high outside, despite it being pretty empty we were put in a little alcove with two families. The staff were fine, but pretty blunt. Food was adequate.... More

Fortizza looks like it is a castle set on the on sea front, but is actually just a facade. The tables and chairs are plastic garden furniture for the most part so not very comfortable. The front pavement seating is faux wicker so first appearances it looks quite appealing. There is plenty of seating in and outside. The food we... More
