The food is great. I have an IBS problem and asked for some ingredients to be omitted, and they were omitted. The view, just by the sea, is great even though it was winter and we dined outside. The staff were very helpful with our 10 month old granddaughter. It is a bit expensive but for a special lunch or... More

My wife and I had not been to Zafiro's for quite a while but we found it to be just as good as ever. I had the Portobello mushrooms in batter to start and the pan crisped duck with honey and orange sauce both of which were delicious,my wife had the special pasta with chicken and a mouth watering cream...

We've ordered two starters and two mains. Out of it all, only one main was tasty, but not mind blowing (what I expected after high scores). The other main and one starter were simply bad, and the second started was just OK.

On the Xlendi waterfront, we were a table of four and the only customers dining outside. A light lunch of bruschetta followed by the pasta of the day, a simple preparation of chicken and sun dried tomatoes perfectly prepared and delicious. With bread to mop up the sauce, there was nothing left on the plates. Yes, we would return!

I have visited zafiro several times and highly recommend it. The service is excellent and staff friendly. With a varied menu and special of the day to choose from you should not be disappointed. The fish dishes are superb and their ribeye steak was excellent.bThey have won another Tourism award the ninth in a row. Well worth a visit.

This restaurant has a picturesque outlook onto the bay and looks promising. Antipasti platters were excellent and I anticipated the mains to be just as good. A wait of 2 hours followed! Fortunately we were a middle sized group so we were able to talk to pass the time, as a couple we would have cancelled and left after 30... More

The waiters are very efficient And friendly. The food was very tasty. Access to the outside area is very accessible. But the inside part has stairs. Unless there is another entrance from the other side.

Just had a lovely late lunch here and after taking care to select a restaurant we where not disappointed. The service was a little slow at one point but this was due to other customers being difficult and or fussy rather than the staff; which the staff dealt with promptly, and with a smile! We would definitely recommend a meal... More
