Incredible dinner - the most delicious mussels and snails I tried in Malta. Their fish soup is also lovely. Our waiter Vhin was wonderful, thank you!

Been in Malta 4 days and have now visited twice. Superb food and service at a very reasonable cost. Sea bream and salmon cooked to perfection served with the broth and homemade desserts to die for. Would definitely recommend a visit.
