This is a pleasant restaurant to be in. The staff are friendly and the decor and comfort are good. On the night we went I felt they were let down by the food. My starter of spaghetti a la vongole was frankly tasteless. My wife...More

A feast for the tastebuds. Very well presented and impeccable service. All staff knows what they re doing plus they make you feel at ease from the first second you enter the door. Truly superb. Superb food based on simplicity yet with a modern twist.

Had the whole fish "al sale"; brought to the table in flames and then filleted. Wonderful. Great service and food.

This restaurant is off the tourist beat in a quiet street. It is popular with locals and eating there is a great experience. The waiters are friendly and helpful and the food fresh and beautifully cooked

It is value for money due to the quality of the food/service but it is fine dining so it is not cheap. We ate there twice and paid 70 and 110 euro's. For this we had 2 courses, Tio Pepe, a bottle of wine and 2 double... More

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
