Description: In older years, the Aragonese knight Martin De Redin, was elected Grandmaster of the Knights of St.John, also known as the Knights of Malta. His gift to the order, was his undertaking to construct, at his own expense, 13 watchtowers to re-enforce the defences of the coastal areas. This is the fifth Tower in the series. Today the Tower terrace is used as a main restaurant with a big terrace. One can admire the wonderful views of the St.Julian's and the Sliema coast. We offer a wide menu consisting mainly of Fresh fish, Pasta and Seafood dishes. Pizzeria is open as well every evening from tasty Margherita's to Seafood Pizzas and It-Torrington traditional pizza. We offer also our famous three hundred grams Wigancourt home made burgers. Frest fish is available daily from our local fisherman , our waiters will help you through the Menu. Last but not least if you want to indulge yourself in our local Maltese traditional dishes offering our traditionally cooked Rabbit, Spaghetti with rabbit sauce, Stuffed beef rolls and Stuffed aubergines. Traditional " FenkatI " are held every week serving whole rabbits for everyone to share and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere in a 360 year old Tower. Our restaurant can be found along Triq it-Torri, ( Tower Road ), Sliema. We open sea Sony from March till October and we are open everyday from morning to evening. Bookings can be made on our website provided numbers and we will be pleased to serve you in our unique Terrace overlooking the sea.

The worst staff on Malta. Miserable, couldn't care attitude ruins what should be a good time. Far better restaurants nearby.
If you want to be treated terribly go here, if you want proper customer service avoid at all costs.

Dear Sir/Madam , I took a bit long to answer for your "Avoid terrible " to respond back, but I wanted to make sure that none of my staff or my employees made a mistake and I investigated the case personally.

Normally I don`t answer back or respond to these comments, some comments are right and we make our best to try and next time we don`t do the same mistake again. We are a very busy restaurant but you can never do your 100% everyday , it is impossible, but at least we do our best and we do it from our heart. I have a very professional staff and very friendly , I was surprised that you wrote this comment, especially after our staff very politely asked you to take care of your children professionally. When you go to eat in a restaurant or have a drink, it`s not a kid`s play area, we try to take care of everybody , but when damages are made to our restaurant or we think that the behavior of your children is not adequate for the people around you we have to take action. I am sorry you got offended, but politely we asked you twice to take care of your children and make sure they don`t do damage to the restaurant tables and furniture. A word between us could have solved the problem immediately, I am sorry you took it personally. Next time you could have gone to Mc Donald`s , they have quite an adequate space for children , where they can break what they want without any expenses to the staff.

Thank you ....

The ideal restaurant situated near the beaches of sliema ! One of the best so far! Enjoyed a full course meal near the lovely view ! The service was more than great with lovely staff always there to help you in any needs and the food was simply delicious! We had a sea food platter and also the fresh fish of the day which was cooked simply great ! I simply recommend this restaurant as it is one of the best so far !

This is a really nice and beautiful place.The view of Balutta Bay is perfect and you can enjoy the sun without the wind.
While the local had pizza and sandwiches,we chose fish.
Local fish is expensive and was poorly cook,was dry and not properly clean.
The fries were oily and the salad almost nothing.
We should propably had to go as the locals for the pizza and the sandwichs.
At the entrance of the restaurant a small kiosk of ice cream,has the best ice creams ever.
at least we had the sweets.

We stopped at this restaurant after passing several that were full of diners on a Sunday evening. It was lucky if it was a third full, we should have read the warning signs. We took a table in the middle of the restaurant, the tables with a sea view were either occupied or waiting to be cleared of dirty dishes.
Went with the traditional rabbit dish and the penne arrabiatta.
Penne was over cooked, stuck together and came with an arrabiatta sauce that had undercooked onion and what tasted like raw garlic through it. Completely inedible.
The rabbit faired little better, over cooked, dry and with virtually no 'rabbit gravy'.
A very poor dining experience.
