“Perfectly Malta”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

With a group of 14 it is difficult to prepare and serve with excellence but the Chef and staff hit a 5 star! We shared fish, meat, and everything in-between and it was all utterly delightful! Rustic and older decor but a trip to the underground wine cellar helped me understand the complexity of owning and maintaining a restaurant and city built on stone.

Most of the other restaurants we ate at were just average but Ramona and company hit a home run. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

“Sophisticated and delicious”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We have eaten here twice (April 2012 and May 2013). Really good service, fabulous food and wonderfully elegant and palatial surroundings at an affordable price. You can eat expensively or cheaply, but the feeling is the same. It is our 'last meal of the holiday' restaurant. You have to book!

“Enchanting”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

This is a gorgeous little restaurant in a side street in Valletta. It is just around the corner from the Embassy shopping complex.
We went on a Wednesday night which is the night where the restaurant is lit by candlelight. The staff were very friendly. They brought fresh fish to our table to choose. The starter and main courses were excellent. The 'pudding' let the meal down as it was only average.
We really enjoyed it and would go again.

“A mixed bag”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

The restaurant space, in an old building, is charming and the service was perfectly adequate (which it often isn't if you're eating alone). Some elements of the meal were brilliant (the gozo cheese), some were bland (the seabream and cherry tomatoes) and some were dry (the roast potatoes) but overall, pleasant enough.
