The title says it all. Right next to the cathedral of St John (which is spectacular). I had the ftira which was very good and a glass of the house wine was fine. If you want a casual lunch in the centre of Valletta then this place is just fine.

I came here with a group of 9 friends and really enjoyed the food. We all had something different, I'm not sure what mine was called now but it was traditional Maltese and delicious and very filling. The staff were polite and friendly and we all had a great time. Thoroughly recommended

The restaurant is well situated, in a beautiful, busy, picturesque street of Valletta, inside its quaintly cluttered. The menu covered a wide range of cuisines. We opted for the maltese foods, rabbit spaghetti and a stuffed roll of meat (with minced meat and ham inside). Both dishes came with the exact same sauce over everything, and were dry and disappointing.

Well the food was OK, if i forget the fact that my pica was burnt and waitress brought us wrong drinks. She was aslo the most uninterested person I saw for a long time. The ambient is quite nice (we were seated upstairs) and that's about it. Average in my opinion.

This place in one of the most beautiful streets of Valletta is a dump. It causes significantly more damage to Malta s tourism industry than it does any good. It's not even worth writing about it

Today enjoyed lunch at Lucianos. The service was great but my baguette could have been nicer. Other things on menu would be nice I'm sure.

...but were not needed at 19.30h on a Sunday. Superb mussels with a top notch garlicky, spicy sauce. Swordfish was spare, served only with fries and one half tomato piece. They did provide two large steaks but that was too much because as they rested they dried out. Just one of the juicy critters would have been perfect.
