Came here several times in March 2015.when there was no outside seating.
This time we dined out on the street and on one occasion had the Festa banners being erected right above our heads.
Informal but good food, local wine by the litre pichet and wonderful staff.

We ate at the Kings own 3 times during our 10 day stay in Valletta. All three meals were excellent and really good value for what you got. On one occasion my husband had the veal chop special which he says was the best one he has ever had. We also had scallops, sea bass, and steak, so there is plenty of choice for all tastes. There are also quite a few pasta dishes but we are not big pasta eaters - however they looked good. The setting is informal with tables outside and in.
A really good mid priced but high quality restaurant - we tended to have some of the most expensive things on the menu (for example scallops and Veal chop) and for 2/3 courses with a nice bottle of wine we paid between £50 and £60 but it would be easy to get a very good meal for less.

We wanted a restaurant to celebrate our final night's in valetta - something special and great food. We stumbled on this unassuming restaurant and took a chance - my wife ordering the scallops and then the tuna steak, whilst I went for the naked brie and then the fried calamari. The service was friendly, efficient and welcoming. The food was delicious, fresh and cooked to perfection. The price, which also included a bottle of wine, sparkling water and two equally delicious desserts, around €70. Well worth it - exceptional night.

It was mother's day eve and we tried to find somewhere to eat in the city center. Almost impossible! Lot's of restaurants were shut and all the others had only reservations. Finally after 1 1/2 hours of search, we spotted a free table! We were warmly welcomed and had a great range of waiters. Every single one of them was very friendly. The food was very good, except for my vegetarian ravioli, which could have staid longer in the water, to be not that hard (that's the reason for my 4 points). We ordered great recommended wine as well. All in all a very pleasant dinner. Thank you.
