Went here on our son's recommendation. We liked the idea that the restaurant is still keeping with the Maltese tradition of complimentary appitizers & Maltese bread however, the rest was unpleasant. My husband had fresh garlic prawns for starters. There was no garlic flavour to them but two garlic cloves on the side of the plate!! I tried two prawns & both had a slight taste of ammonia - an indication that they were not fresh. We both had sword fish for main, my husband with salad & chips, mine with fresh vegetables & roast potatoes. The salad was very colourful, fresh & crispy, the chips tasted good albeit approximately 12 of them. Never been served such a mean portion of chips like this before. My fresh vegetables were not - they were frozen. The cauliflower was ok, the carrots tasted old & the broccoli disintegrated. Why use frozen vegetables? Plenty fresh vegetables and very reasonably priced this time of year. The potatoes must have been boiled a couple of days before & then dipped into a deep fat fryer. The fish was so dry and mine was partially burnt. We called the waitress over to see what we've been served up. She was very apologetic and called the proprietor. He ate one of the potatoes and argued that they were tasty Maltese potatoes. An insult to Maltese potatoes we know how delicious they are but the ones I was served tasted disgusting. In his defence he did ask us what he could do to make it better. Hire someone who respects food and knows how to cook it would be a start, came to mind but we said nothing. We were not charged for my meal but that's not the point. We would have much rather enjoyed our food and paid for it than spoilt our evening. It is a great shame that a restaurant as well established as this one has got it so so wrong and ought to know much better. We will not go back.
