Visited restaurant during Notte Bianca at about 22:30hrs. Place was hot and packed with diners but was not expecting otherwise. Staff looked exhausted but they did an exceptional job during our visit. Luckily we were seated next to an a/c that made the wait more bearable. Unfortunately they had run out of our first choices of wines and food and... More

We found this treasure whilst walking around. The setting was I had a seafood pasta & my husband had seafood pizza. My meal was ok, but the pizza was quite salty and was overcooked.

This restaurant is placed in a cellar beneath the Castille hotel in Valletta, meaning its quite cool even if outside temperature gets very hot. Pizza is good (not great - some topping were off/strange), prices are very good for the location. Good wine list as well as beer and water (on demand, not shown on menus).

If you need a handrail I suggest that you use the hotel entrance round the corner and after entering go to the left into the hotel lounge... More

What a find, a very old historic cave restaurant, serving mainly pizza and pasta and some salads. Food delicious, and service very good. The drinks, especially the fizz, were great value indeed. We visited twice during our stay, and would look forward to further visits in the future.

Went a bit scared during lunch time when we realised that we are the only one in the restaurant ..I asked for sirloin steak but tender meat and well done..I was impressed how good was and how nice the portions. Definitely that place its worth trying again.

Restaurant looking very tatty....Greeted by a waitress who knows just a few words in english and also took a wrong order.. Food was aweful... Walking out you could see the kitchen which looked really in need of upgrading and chefs uniforms could really do with a good wash!!

Went here for lunch today. Had bruschetta and fried chicken salad. Really good value and portion size generous. Very tasty. Waiter very friendly. Nice views to square. But the inside is truly cave like and looks lovely. We must go back for dinner.
