First time having a lunch at this restaurant. Sat outside to enjoy the sun... Party of 3, ordered 1 stuffed squid & 2 sea bass. I had the squid. Delicious!!! My colleagues had the same opinion of the sea bass. Desserts were good too.

One of our first dinners in Valetta on a brisk night. I had a wonderful pork belly with honey dish. And although my husband enjoyed his linguine with prawns, he convinced me to share with him, because he loved the pork belly, too. The soft...More
