We visited this restaurant twice on a three night stay in the area. The food is fresh, tasty and excellent value for money. The staff were very helpful and made sure our visits were enjoyable. The chicken with pesto is delicious and although they didn't have garlic bread on the menu as a starter option, they made us a plateful... More

A family group, first time for some and they were impressed. Helpful staff, good value food with generous portions. Does not have a great atmosphere but friendly locals make it worthwhile. The 'welcome to Malta' platter for two is a must for newcomers and I have in the past had it as a main course and no doubt will do... More

This is not a Michelin star restaurant, but if you want fast,delicious and reasonably priced food then this place ticks all the boxes. The waiting staff are attentive and friendly. Pizza is especially great!

A feast of a three course meal and so very cheap! Good well cooked food with all the basics you need for a Sunday roast meal. Hot puddings as well. The service was good and we did not fell rushed. They serve quite late for lunch too. For a traditional Sunday lunch this is perfect! They do other stuff too... More

Recommended by locals we met and rightly so. We were both extremely happy with our dishes, portion sizes were just right and the chicken and pesto pasta truly stunning. Will be on our return agenda.

We were told this was a good place by an expat, and so we visited on a Sunday evening, I had the Lamb Shanklin which was superb, and my wife had a pizza, which was massive and delicious, we had a bottle of wine from the sommelier choice at €8.10 and a bottle of fizzy water, the total bill was...

We passed by this restaurant on a couple of occasions and when we eventually ventured in, we were made to feel very comfortable and welcome by the waiter/barman who helped us through our dinning decisions. Food was lovely, ribs were tasty / massive and even got an unexpected free bottle of wine for spending €25+. The "Welcome to Malta" platter... More

We booked a table on Sunday after hearing great things about Sunday lunch here. One thing I miss as an expat is a delicious Sunday roast that I don't have to cook for myself. We went as a family of 4, with two often fussy kids of 4 and 14 and although they only offered us the Sunday lunch menu,... More

We went there by default, we had booked a table elsewhere and they decided not to open. However l can say, the welcolming is really friendly and the food is great, the Pork Fillet and cheese was lovely and the Rib-Eye steak was massive and done as asked to perfection. A really superb way to finish our holiday, and the... More
