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.

This has such a wide range of reviews that is difficult to understand - do they have two teams of chefs and waiting staff? The service was good and attentive. The food was very acceptable/good. It is just off the main drag, but the outside seating still has views of the bay. The inside has an older Malta feel to... More

Restaurant is small so best to book if you can. Quaint surroundings, attentive service and great food. Best suckling pig I've ever had and huge portions at that. Would definitely recommend to give a try

There is a nice ambience about this restaurant and the staff were friendly and attentive. There was a good variety of dishes and the children had prawn and chorizo pasta and homemade Rosette. Unfortunately, the Rosette had too much cheese in it and our granddaughter couldn’t finish it. The adults had Veal Cheeks which were excellent, Suckling Pig was a... More

After all these amazing reviews it is so disappointing. The staff was totally bored, unhelpful, I didn't get any help when I asked for advice on the wine "It depends on what you like" Seriously? The food wasn't tasty and I waited for ages for the bill. We felt uncomfortable all that time. Bad experience.

This the third time we have visited and it just gets better. The staff,the manager all work hard to make an excellent evening. We shared a beef carpaccio. My husband had lamb chops and I ordered veal prime rib. This does not usually come with a sauce but on request a delicious mushroom sauce was prepared for an extra charge.... More
