This evening, my wife and I visited this charming and lively restaurant. I had Rabbif Liver as a starter and swordfish to follow. My wife had rabbit stew. Neither of us sampled the establishment's pizzas. But we were more than satisfied with the food we enjoyed.

It's been a while since our last visit.. so decided to go for an early dinner... 6:15 pm opening time. It was windy but the covered balcony was fine.

this is one of the quaint places that deserve a visit when you feel like having a pizza. The place is easy to find. juust about two to five minutes walking distance from Meriden Hotel at Balluta Bay, located directly on the waterfront. Worth a try.

Takeaway pizza was the worst I have ever tasted, I made a mistake again by ordering a pizza from here. Please there are many more pizza places around the area. Pizza not cut and horrible desserts.

Had a nice lunch the food was good but to wait for a dish of pasta 45 minutes because it was to order, to be well cooked was not normal.

The restaurant is located right by sea - dining outdoors on the balcony is a real pleasure. The building has lots of character with its thick stone walls, and wonderful layout. The decoration is very tasteful - the lovely light blue wooden furniture blends so well with the surroundings. We've been to this place many times, and it doesn't disappoint.... More

We had friends visiting us and we just wanted a small bite. We decided to go for a pizza. It was an excellent choice. Very nice tastes, an amazing location and very nice environment. The staff was very well trained, polite and always there to help. We definitely go again!

Excellent seafood, pasta and piza. The Sea Food Platter to share was packed with flavours. Friendly relaxed service with no pressure to clear the table.

Thank Bill P
