“Lack of choice can be good too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Amazing place; thumbs up for ambience, food and service. Especially liked the fact that you don't need to stick to a particular dish or two but you get to eat such a variety of mouth watering food. You also get to sit back, relax and get food chosen for you. Having said that, it might not be a good place for picky eaters, I personally tend to like experimenting and will try anything I am presented with but that may not be everyone's cup of tea. Keep it up!

“Only a tasting menu?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

We hadnt realised that the only thing on offer was a tasting menu but we thought what the hell its only 20 euros. Have to say it was great - the food just kept coming and we almost lost count of the dishes. Mostly small of course but all local ranging from octopus and prawns to beef olive and summer salad. And rabbit of course.
The owner/chef was attentive and helpful and we had a great meal. Highly recommended.
Dont know what another reviewer was talking about only getting four courses. Must have done something wrong to upset the management!

“Very good, but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

I had heard nothing but praise about this place, so I suggested it to a couple of friends and we visited earlier this week. We were given a warm welcome and ordered some wine. Shortly after we were being served appetizers. It started off with your standard bread and olive oil, but after another two appetizers, we asked about the food available to order. To our surprise, we were told that "basically (we had) no choice" when it came to food, and had to have the tasting menu for €20 per person. We didn't want it to dampen our evening, and considering we had planned on eating anyway, we simply went ahead. I can't say we were disappointed as the food was delicious and, all in all, good value for money. However, we all thought it quite rude to be told we had no choice. Perhaps a better choice of words, or at least timing, would have made all the difference.

“Amazing food in enormous amounts for a tiny sum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Friends had visited earlier in the week and suggested we go again on the last night of our week in Malta. So glad we did. It is hard to believe that food of this quality can be prepared for the price charged. It would have been good value at double the price. And it just kept coming - we had to beg them to stop in the end as delicious though everything was we were just so full that we couldn't eat anymore. Excellent wines available too and the owner and staff are friendly and smiling.
