A excellent menu card (mainly Italian dishes), very polite and elegant service, and a cosy jazzy atmosphere. A very fair prices. The only time we have chosen to eat the same restaurant twice during a one week holliday.

Owned by young couple that seem to do almost everything and they do this very well. Menu is not ridiculously long indicating freezer-fare but limited with freshly cooked choice. Highly recommended.

The New Overflow Restaurant, under new management, is located at Triq il-Maskli, Qawra, just a street parallel to Triq it-Turisti. Bright and airy, the restaurant is ideal to grab a bite at lunch time or to order a one to three course in the evening. One will fall in love with the restaurant with its genuine Mediterranean cuisine accompanied by an excellent service.
