We dined here 3 times during our holiday and the food was always excellent. Varied choice of menu fresh fish, Maltese dishes and regular selection of dishes. Food all freshly cooked so do have to wait but is worth it. Family run business all very friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend a visit and reasonably priced.
