For the amount of food presented we got an extremely high bill to pay! Food is good but nothing extraordinary! I don't think I will ever go again. 130 euros per couple is a bit too much especially when we only had 2 bottles of wine and dessert to share!

Good Valletta Waterfront restaurant, actually it is situated in the waterfront where cruise liners berth. The food was very good, as a starter we shared a fish platter and pasta as a main, the pasta was perfectly cook and served.

I've travelled more than 40 countries in the world and ate at hundreds of restaurants, including Michelin 3 stars. And the service of this restaurant was one of the worst. Especially the rudest waiter, who TOLD ME OFF in front of all other guests, when we complained about the white wine, which was discoloured and tasted like sherry.(obviously due to... More

The waterfront is theperfect restaurant for a night out. Pintonino food, we ate fish, was good but not out of this world. The thing is that for what you get, the price is quite on the high side.

The place is nice being outdoor but the rest really put me off. The waiters were all foreign except one who was Maltese. We ordered a coke and the waiter took 10 secs what coke actually was. With regards to food the steak was fantastic and also the pasta but my veal was coated in butter. I know that that... More

this family run restaurant is a real find. Excellent fresh fish, cooked to order. So fresh, and flavourful. Nothing was too much trouble for the excellent staff who are attentive but not loitering. The wine list was very good and fully compliments the menu. Everyone was so friendly and enthusiastic about what they are doing. After dinner on the first... More
