Our first meal in Valletta and a huge disappointment. The burger I ordered was inedible. They apologised and brought me another which was almost as bad. Tough as old boots and dry as a bone. They were very apologetic and didn't charge me. However my...More

The place is ok, with nice location in a central point of Valletta. However the staff is not professional, with mistakes and confusion. We taste two dishes, the traditional Maltese food is good. The other dish with chicken and fresh cream it was disgusting.

Like most people visiting the area I just followed the crowd and ended up having a lunch. Nothing to write home about. Just a overpriced well positioned cafe. Was told I can't charge my mobile phone!! Won't be going back.

We visited for dinner. The location is just off the main shopping street so it's not fully of hustle and bustle but it has a great atmosphere. No one tries to drag you in but the staff are super friendly and efficient which all adds...More

Pleasantly situated off the main street through Valletta. Not a fancy restaurant but food great, reasonably priced and we tried the Maltese Rose Wine which was very good. Staff very pleasant, helpful and attentive.

This is a family run business and we do our best to give the home made food feeling. We mainly cook A La Carte therefore the menu changes twice daily, depending on what is fresh during the day. For those that are in more of a rush there are the snacks and burgers menu. Being exactly in the middle of Valletta one could shade themselves from the scorching sun under our lovely trees whilst having their well deserved break.
