A glass of fresh orange was ordered from the menu with the price listed. A glass of freshly squeezed orange juice is what was served and finished to the last drop ! Fifteen minutes was taken for your order to be served. Apologies for the delay as we were busy and orders are prepared on a first come first bases.... More

We enjoyed huge salad plates here at lunchtime. We needed to top up our veg levels, and this was perfect for that. The salads were a little pricey but nice and fresh and HUGE helpings. The waterfront location was lovely, looking straight on to the marina. There was a small road in front, but little traffic. It was a little... More

Flat drinks, tatty menus, relies on its location rather than producing anything nice. The waitress was nice enough and service was quick but that's it.

Stopped here for a light bite to eat and a cold drink. Unfortunately the waiter was slow and hopeless, didn't even know what was on their menu?! Service was mega slow even though there were only 2 occupied tables. Don't bother, this place is a rip off.

Menu was quite short. to be honest, i was expecting better, Other restaurants in same location are much better, and offer a wider selection. Just had 4 pizza options and kids wanted pizza. Not sure whether i will revisit.

My Wife and I had lunch, dinner and just coffee over several days on our recent stay in Birgu. The staff were professional, courteous and friendly at all times. The food was excellent and very competitively priced. The view of the Birgu waterfront and Valletta in the distance is fabulous.

This is a lovely little restaurant down by the waterfront. Looking for somewhere to eat, and starting to get quite hungry I saw that there seemed to be a lot of English looking people sitting here and so wandered over to peruse the menu. I was surprised to see jacket potatoes on the menu, with some distinctly Maltese flavours. Wanting... More
