You are guaranteed a feast of fresh Maltese food, as all produce is either home grown or sourced locally.

A superb restaurant which provides a great dining experience. You start with a large selection of different small dishes from tasty dips to pickled vegetables. This followed by a choice of selected main courses all featuring locally produced meat and produce. A truely great experience.

I made reservation for the restaurant for the 6 of us. My daughter has celiac disease so it's quite important for me that the restaurant can cater for her as well. The staff was super careful about her needs and that is very rare. The...More
