We had the Maltese spaghetti and the stuffed beef. It was nothing short of delicious, hearty homemade food. The wine list is impressive and very democratically priced. This is an excellent restaurant especially compared with all the tourist traps around this area. I would happily...More

Tried the Red Snapper and by far the best fish dish I have enjoyed in a long time. Equally enjoyed with a fantastic bottle of wine and a great starter of a traditional Maltese cheese platter. Service was fantastic and although we hadn’t booked in...More

The restaurant was recommended by a friend who visited a few years ago. She as not wrong. It was a lovely place inside and out. Nothing was too much for the waitresses and the food was 10/10. Would definitely recommend and return ourselves

The food was delicious and tasty (especially the maltese platter) but some portions are very little. The restaurant is elegant and classy and the staff kind and helpful. Definitely a good experience.

Questions & Answers
Hi Mr.Andy c I apologize for the inconvenience.I checked regarding the booking and I did not find anything under your name.Are you sure you booked to the right website? We open just for dinner so If you were calling during the day No one would be on duty to answer you.That could be the reason no one took your calls.Maybe if you tried calling after 5.30 in the evening, we would have answered immediately. When it comes to leaving a review to a restaurant you have not been to,I find that completely wrong. Myself, as a client and a manager, I would never leave a good or especially a bad review to a place I have not visited.I think that is a bit rude and shady! Please note that the address on Trip advisor is good so it would work perfectly on google maps and google earth. King regards Paulrick Spiteri I
