The food and Service was excellent. The portions were large and I cannot fault the place. I would recommend this place to anyone. The price was very reasonable too when compared with another restaurant we went to the day before.

Wasn't sure what to expect but went in hoping to get something half decent. Had a fabulous dinner with a bottle of wine, very reasonably priced. Strongly recommended 👍🏻

I loved this restaurant. Very attentive staff. The owner was lovely. The menu is different. Suckling pig was delicious. Fresh produce was brought out for you to see. The veal steaks looked amazing and there was a large platter of fresh fish to choose from. Will definatly visit again!!

This is probably one of the best I've tried in the world, in my life. The Pasta with Duck leg confit .. oh my God!... what a taste... I would come to Malta again only to taste this pasta. All Malta is beautiful of course.
