If you're looking for good paella and seafood linguini, this is the place! Kudos to Sandra, Marija, Dylan, Gabor and the kitchen crew for a warm, friendly, efficient service and delicious food. Ate there 3 out of the 7 days in town.

We had a family meal here while staying in the area. The service was excellent and the food was amazing I can recommend the half rack of ribs southern style, looked more like a full rack and great value for money, all our meals were excellent and a generous portion size.

The place got busier whilst we were dining. The staff were very courteous and friendly and the food was good and filling. Good place... More

Anyone staying at the Qawra Palace or Seashells Hotel is opposite this restaurant. Apart from the steakhouse 100 yards away (which is also good) this is the only proper restaurant on the Qawra Road and is ideal for those who don't want to eat (understandably) in either of these hotels. It is also busy because it is right by the... More
