A nice place to stop for a quick break or coffee; this is a restaurant and coffee shop in a garden atmosphere; it is pet friendly . One thing I have to criticize , since the place is a garden style many take advantage of smoking while other clients next to them are having lunch; I would like to point... More

Great experience. We love this restaurant. You can either choose to sit in a classy / fancy restaurant, or in a casual area or outside seating near their garden. There is a small play area for the kids to play and the parents can still watch over them from their table. Their menu is reasonable and good. The food depends,... More

The atmosphere is loud and compact, music based is around pop not recommended for a quite place as well as the staff were friendly and at times the restaurant can be packed. Not a place to just walk in for more than 5 people you might need to reserve. Toilets we were not sure if there any. Food could have... More

We returned here after several months away and were pleased we did. It is a large restaurant with an outdoor seating area as well as indoor and seems busy at all times of the day with local people as well as tourists. It opens at 10.00am for breakfasts and coffee and then goes on to serve casual foods such as... More

First they did not bring out we order, eventhough she wrote on the paper, then we said one more time that we want the bear and the tea, and after one more half an hour they brought only the hot water, no tea bag. They mess up our bill and put also the things that we did not consumed.

Restaurant is near the Corinth Palace Hotel and Spa, accross the street. Qiute large seating options both in and out. Building was home to servants of the leader of the Malta Knights, feels historic in the room we were eating in. Ordered the linguine, tomato, sausage meal---OMG, I ate less than half the bowl it was so big, easly fed... More

First visit was lunch which was very enjoyable good service and lovely food and beer at reasonable price. Evening visit not so good as waited one hour for pizza as was a bit busier and only one man making pizzas for eating in and takeaway service. Not enough staff so poor staff running around trying to please everyone. Would recommend... More

I went there as usual with my wife and baby. First of all, good tables and chairs and amble space for the push chair. Polite waiters and quick payment. From my last experience which kinda turned me off from that place, I remember several flies buzzing around while you are trying to eat. Now they are gone because they closed... More
