From an unassuming entrance, you then enter into a stunning restaurant. Superb service, extensive menu and wine list. All the food we saw looked great, a lot of fish dishes but also plenty of meat options available. Rather than having a desert each, we opted...More

I love this restaurant. The only difficulty is deciding what to order. You will need to visit twice in one trip. I usually have fish, always top quality. The setting is very beautiful too. It'so authentic, it feels like an old Maltese house and the...More

Lovely setting, but a little expensive for what we had. Portions are much smaller than elsewhere in Malta. Seafood starter was good but trio of fish for main course was a little dry.

They serve high quality seafood. Chef knows what he is doing. Kids friendly. Try their calamari and mix fish platter.

Yes it is good value. It's not exceptionally high in prices. It is what many other restaurants in Valletta charge. The difference is that unlike some the food is cooked with care. So it works out that it's reasonably priced... More
