Visited on three occasions during my stay as I was unable to fault the place. The food is of high quality from a combination of Maltese and Italian chefs. The owner Mario and manager, Vince, preside over their staff who are professional and attentive without being obtrusive. I would applaud this establishment for its very good quality food, generous portions... More

Sorry but inspite of the good reviews here, I was immediately put off by the 2 large TV screens showing football in the resturant. This seemed to me to make it harder to concentrate on what we hoped was the delicious food to come, And the irritating guitar music... However the screens were a good indication. I ordered a greek...

Good Food good value and tasty. Very friendly staff especially Vince, who was very attentive. Wine, including non Maltese, very good value. My rabbit was the best I had tasted on the island. Ate here three times in seven days. Bonus if you are a sports fan.

My wife and I went to this restaurant for the first time yesterday and were absolutely impressed. We had plenty of food and it was of an excellent quality. The staff are fantastic. Will go again and recomand it to locals and tourists on the Island. Free parking is also available.

I went today with my husband to have dinner at this restaurant, due to the good comments of TripAdvisor. First the bread was very hard, it seemed to be old bread from many days. Then we went to the sad bar which is included with the main dish and it was really awful! The salad was not fresh at all,... More

Our hotel was a bit further away from the centre and the wind was howling and we ended up parking our car near this restaurant. We had to enter to see the menu, the one in the window was too small, but we were pleasantly surprised. Good food choices, portion and friendly staff. Not expensive and house rose wine delicious...

Really enjoyed our visit. Lots to choose from on the menu and plenty of choice for children. It also contains a good selection of local Maltese wine which I would recommend - good quality for the price. Service was prompt, professional and friendly. Food was well cooked, I enjoyed a nice swordfish steak with caper sauce - recommended!

Thank maury101
