The Overflow probibly deserves a slightly higher rating than three, the service is good and there is a large menu to select from. The house wine was very nice, the food was good but not outstanding.

We stayed in Malta for a week recently and visited this restaurant on three evenings, we just loved it, the food is exceptional, can't honestly think of anything negative to say. Can't remember what we had, I just know it was sublime!
