We had a lovely meal here, the fish was excellent. It was served on a black plate which was very complimentary for fish. The atmosphere is formal and upmarket but not the price which was similar to other restaurants in Valletta. Highly recommend this place...More

Yes it is good value. It's not exceptionally high in prices. It is what many other restaurants in Valletta charge. The difference is that unlike some the food is cooked with care. So it works out that it's reasonably priced... More
