Me and my girlfriend went there twice on our recent holiday. The food ( large portions ) and service were great and it's reasonably priced. It does get very busy so booking is advisable in peak times. Highly recommended.

Glad that you had enjoyable dining experiences at Ta' Pawla. I tend to agree that our portions are rather large and not all manage to eat everything. Still we need to cater for a good number who finish all their meal. Thanks for your good comments. More

Had evening meal here on Thursday 29th December, quite busy. The atmosphere was lovely. Such a nice restaurant. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was such good value for money. Shared a bruschetta for our starter, my husband had puttini....Maltese dish, similar to meatballs. His potion was huge. I opted for chicken. Both meals didn't disappoint. They... More
