The Maltese call it their traditional dish. Can see why cause they cook this dish in wine and garlic. Had a lovely lunch at this restaurant with local wine. Highly recommended

It was my first time visiting the restaurant. Nice ambiance, close to the sea, cosy setting. Portions were huge, meat nicely cooked. The restaurant has a small buffet table were one could take cold pasta and salads. Waiters were very polite. A very positive experience, we will definitely visit again

A little hidden from view, good choices on menu, and it is part of the Roma Hotel. Good decor, clean, friendly staff, good portion sizes, prices comparable for the Sliema area.

We booked a table for five and it was exactly where we wanted it to be, on the front terrace. It's not the first time I have been here. The food is great and the menu very varied, with practically anything you may feel like. We were three adults and two children. All the portions were very generous. The children... More

I ordered penne which was al denote but the sauce was fairly insipid. It is not an expensive restaurant and perhaps ordered more typical Maltese dishes would be a better idea.
