Found this place by chance opposite St Paul's Church and we're lured in by the wonderful aroma of cooking and the fact the place was buzzing with locals. The friendly staff brought us the best value and tastiest salad of Maltese food imaginable and the portions were so large I struggled(but managed) to eat anything else all day. It's worth searching out this little hidden gem.

This tiny cafe full of locals is central but on a backstreet. Great home made fresh food at unbelievably cheap prices!
