We were looking for a restaurant which offered some traditional dishes and found this which we actually visited over 10 years ago as a family. The vibe is lovely, it had just opened & was full with tourists & Maltese straight away. The staff were...More

Hmm, we went to this restaurant, because they offer “traditional” Maltese food. The daily special was pappardelle with beef and mushrooms. The service was great and the starter we shared was OK, the main course of pappardelle was awful no other word for it. The...More

Close to our hotel, this looked an inviting local restaurant so we booked a table on our way back one afternoon. This proved to be a good decision as it is certainly a busy restaurant with many people getting turned away during the evening. We...More

One of the best meals I ate in Malta. Had the starter size linguine followed by grandma's rabbit with a half bottle of local red wine recommended by the waiter. Perfect combination and generous portions made for a really great meal.

Questions & Answers
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
