Visited this restaurant three times during my visit to Malta. The owner and the staff are very nice and polite, and the food is very good. Also, the price is quite good. I would recommend the pasta with seafood, and the octopus salad!

Thank you Tripadvisor! When your fiancée suddenly decides she's hungry and wants to eat seafood I had to turn to the Tripadvisor community to find the best seafood restaurant in Bugibba. You didn't let me down. This place is a little gem.

The food is to die for, in good weather it's great to eat outside, the bellini's are delicious and very strong, the mussels fresh and delicious, the lobster fresh and tasty. Throw in great service and reasonable prices, what more can you ask for? I want to go back!

Set slightly up away from the hustle and bustle so nice quiet and cosy little spot. The sharing started is amazing. I hate aubergine but the aubergine taster was spectacular. Had swordfish roll for main which was a new taste experience and not an unpleasant one either. The steak was perfect and the tuna steak just right. The lemon sorbet washed down with limoncello is a must.

Great seafood by this little place. Waiter & chef are lovely people. The food was fresh, well made and tasty. Highly recommend considering we went twice in 2 days.

Out of all the restaurants I have visited in Malta across multiple visits, this restaurant has to rank as the #1 dining experience on the island in terms of the quality of food, including seafood.

The restaurant itself is located on a side street close to Bugibba Square, close enough to be regarded as central but yet shielded from the masses of tourists, most of whom would not appreciate the high quality of food that the Sicilian owner prepares with immaculate attention to detail and never-compromising high standards.

The menu itself provides the first hint that you are in for a special treat. It is subtle yet intriguing, with carefully thought out positions and no touristy pictures to accompany them, and offers a range of interesting positions in every category.

The starters themselves are superb and utterly mesmerising, and for a first-time visitor I would recommend the 1-2 person platter to sample a bit of everything. For those who like octopus, as one of our guests did, the octopus salad was "absolute perfection" to quote directly. For mains I can wholeheartedly recommend the grilled fish, which easily goes down as the best fish I have had on Malta. Top things off with lemon sorbet - made not from local but special, select lemons from Sicily - and a glass of limoncello for the perfect lunch.
