What a perfect dinner!
Top service, top views and top food. Highly recommend. Servers were attentive. Food was scrumptious, with a great menu. Thank you for a great dining experience and great evening. Will definitely return.

Visited tonight and had two fillet steaks and a bottle of prossecco. Both were very high quality and he atmosphere and view in this place are excellent. Service from the staff was attentive and desserts were great too.

So why not 5 stars? Just a couple of little things really. If I'm ordering a fillet steak I would expect to have a steak knife. I think the 'all people must spend €20' notice on the menu is tacky...most people would anyway. We spent €100 between 2 so why put it on the menu? Also whilst the staff were all dressed very smartly and in keeping with the place, the owner (I presume) was dressed in jeans t-shirt and trainers to take orders etc. I mean if you're going to have standards for your staff then surely you lead by example?

Let's keep in mind all of these are minor points and it's only constructive criticism, and let me emphasize again that overall this was a very pleasant experience! Thank you.

This place is amazing.

Okay, it might be slightly, a little cramped but other than that there's not a bad word to say. View is incredible (book early or get there for 7.30/8 if you want to sit outside) and the food was incredible, also came out very fast.

Waiters were brilliantly trained and extremely polite and happy (standard for Malta).

My dad and I had 2 mains, a bottle of red, 2 starters, san pellegrino and some bread for 87 euros! absolutely insane.

Top shelf dining!

The views of the harbor from the restaurant are fabulous. The service was nice enough, but a bit slow (maybe standard for the area?). Our starters were good as was the wine. My husband had the stuffed squid which had nice flavor but wasn't the best meal ever. Mine... was awful. Thin slices of "swordfish" that were stuffed with a sticky, unflavorful, orange goo and then was rolled in dry breadcrumbs. It was supposed to be a raisin/pine nut, something or other filling that sounded good.... but very much was not. I hardly ate any of it and it was not a cheap meal. Views: top notch, but we wouldn't return based on the food sadly.

It is a bit pricy compared to others but if you have a special night it's worth it. The fresh catches are fantastic!
