The service here is fabulous especially Lawrence who really goes the extra mile every time - even recognising us from a previous visit. Great place to hang out for a cocktail.

Can not complain about the food eaten here a few times and food was brilliant every time. The only thing we did not like was if you was eaten outside people where smoking in the restaurant, but apart from that brilliant.

It is great to come back after a day out and be able to have a meal. The prices are a bit high and the quality is not as good as you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

This is part of the 5 star Palace Hotel which backs onto the Victoria Hotel and part of the AX Group, I believe. We enjoyed this facility on a number of occasions during our holiday. Very good food at reasonable prices served fresh and efficiently. A very good Cocktail Bar with a fine range of spirits. Beer is also available... More

Had lunch several times here. Interesting choices, vegetarian options, but nothing exciting. Great feature - smoking in the outdoor area was limited to restricted area. This is unusual in Malta.

We were staying in The Victoria Hotel. Food was quite good, however the service was rather slow and I had to repeat my order to the waiters on several occasions. I didn't like the fact that it felt more like a sports bar, with football on the television all the time, which shattered the atmosphere. A little disappointing.

I had their Caesar salad with prawn and is was really bad. Way too much dressing and the croutons were the worst I've ever had.
