Description: This is a wine-bar which has now become a restaurant as well. Unfortunatleyit is not equiped to do either. The service staff are not good at all. Also the food is nothing to write home about either.

“It's a pity”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

This place has the absolute best condition to be one of Malta's top restaurants but instead its one of the worst or most probably the worst. since the good location i have been here to drink wine a number of times but due to bad experiance I abstain from ordering food, however last week i gave them a new chance and it was defenetly the last one.. out from the 5 tapas we ordered only one was eatable even although it was far from good!! service wasnt much better then the good, twice we had to go in to the bar, once to get anther bottle of water and secound to pay... HOPELESS. please if the owners read this. SELL THE PLACE and let somebody that knows that they are doing to take over.

“I hope I don't end up here ever again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2011

I went to this restaurant as a birthday celebration for one of my best friends, and it was a totally flop evening. We were seated at around 9.30 and the food was still not our table at 11pm!! When we were presented with the food it was uneatable (Pasta with salmon was tasteless, chicken was SUPER dry and not served with any side dishes even though the waiters told us that it was) We had to send the food back, and asked to speak the manager several times - he never appeared. We had to leave the table to find somewhere better to have a quick meal as by then we were totally starved. I sincerely hope this was a one off bad day for this place - but i probably will never go back.

“Interesting space- awful food and even worse service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2010

It really could be an outstanding dining venue in Valletta. It's impressive location at the base of the city walls set in an impressive vaulted space suggest it as a really attractive option for an evening out. In this case appearances are most definitely misleading.
The chef seems to have some predilection for being heavy-handed with oil. My wife was served up some insipid tortellini swimming in olive oil, whilst I negotiated something that was labelled Thai Chicken but in reality was Bland Chicken drenched in oily soya sauce.
The general service was inefficient and our specific waiter was arrogant. Admittedly he did try to redeem our experience after our mains. We were offered something on the house after commenting on the unremarkable quality of the food; we ordered one dessert and one coffee. Alas, the original terms of the gesture of good will had changed by the time the bill arrived. A single free coffee was now the compensation for a dining experience that was by now going down like a lead balloon. When we engaged our haughty waiter about this issue, his dismissive attitude was bordering on offensive. (By the way the cheese cake was also bland, the cappucino of the variety you'd get a cheap train-station kiosk).
At least we stayed until we finished our meal. An unfortunate French couple beside us walked out after a few mouthfuls of what looked like a carbonised platter of ribs, onion rings, potato wedges and chicken wings.
The setting of this restaurant deserves so much more.
