Small and cosy restaurant - room for 12 people upstairs but additional seating downstairs and outside. Tasty wrap made fresh on the premises. Recommend as a good place to stop for lunch.

Downstairs seating in this little restaurant is cool in both senses of the word. Watermelon juice is lovely. Maltese platter was excellent and, as usual here in Malta, more than I could eat. My husband had no trouble polishing off the Italian platter though. Worth...More
