Tired of pizza and pastizzi? There is a world of Maltese food you need to discover. Why not try some home cooked real food? if you are one of the less inquisitive among us, there is a few of the familiar dishes (quite a few)...More

Out of the dozens of hotels and restaurants I've visited and eaten at on the islands, this restaurant was by far the best for quality, taste and value- Highly recommended.

Hi Mr.Andy c I apologize for the inconvenience.I checked regarding the booking and I did not find anything under your name.Are you sure you booked to the right website? We open just for dinner so If you were calling during the day No one would be on duty to answer you.That could be the reason no one took your calls.Maybe if you tried calling after 5.30 in the evening, we would have answered immediately. When it comes to leaving a review to a restaurant you have not been to,I find that completely wrong. Myself, as a client and a manager, I would never leave a good or especially a bad review to a place I have not visited.I think that is a bit rude and shady! Please note that the address on Trip advisor is good so it would work perfectly on google maps and google earth. King regards Paulrick Spiteri I
