Badly served by this wine bar. Amazing quiet location and decent cuisine, however, i had a reservation booked and was made to wait for 45 minutes to be seated. We had actually given up on getting seated so the wait might have been longer should we not have left to search for another place. Disappointing.

The food menu is reasonably varied, but keep in mind this is a wine bar. Platters are good and the camembert (not on the menu) is delicious. The service is very accommodating.

Massive disappointment Barely adequate wine list and for a summer outdoor area place quite a poor Beer selection Platters are a robbery- if I wanted greens , crackers or bread I would have ordered them and not a cheese and meat ones.

Wine bar is so close to the church. Good service !! You will meet lots of local people. Out door seating available. Very cozy and fresh in the summer. We visited this place many time due to excellent service.

Food is fresh and of high quality. Restaurant offers simple menu with some typical maltese dishes. Great variety of wines. We orderded a plate of different flavours, like local cheese, meats, olives etc. It was perfect. We visited 6 different restaurants in Malta and these was the best.
