Attraction details
Owner description: An unforgettable experience of a unique Maltese folklore show and dinner, giving eager audiences a glimpse of Malta through the ages, as this tiny but significant Island of ours journeys from the prehistoric to present times… with special emphasis on one of the greatest chapters in Maltese history … the Knights of St. John and the Great Siege, when a small garrison of the famous Knights of St. John together with our heroic Maltese defenders managed to defeat the mighty Ottoman Empire. A talented cast of dancers and entertainers dressed in rich medieval costumes and shining armour together with our magnificent horses, will entertain, excite and amuse you during two hours of non-stop action, song and dance. Witness a colourful fusion of tribal music, folk dancing, carnival, fire dancers, knights on horseback, live battles and much more highlighting Maltese culture, traditions and folk.

“Funny night out, different way to get your dinner”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

The pick up and drop of worked ok (took a long while from pick up to get to the show, but drop off was fast).

The site was nice looking, the queue to get in, not too long (we were lucky to be amongst the first, and well off season). You sit on wood benches with a wood plank infront of you as wood table. It's not easy to get in or out.

The "free flowing wine" was correct, and the tip for the wine is, those cans that are completely open in front, have wine, red or white, those with extra metal piece got soda. Stick your hand in air if you wish more. The quality of the wine, was dissappointing.

The 3 course meal was as expected (tried on a disney paris show once earlier), served on metal pans, you had rise mix with some kind of meat in it? Dry chicken leg with a few potatoes and a white wheat bun to it, and very few vegs (got a tinny bit of a carrot). Dessert was a bit of sliced fruit.

I found the show as expected, story was nice, if you understand english you'll be fine, the hostes speaks it clear and great. It's a mix of dancing, horses, bit of singing and takes you through some of the historic developments of Malta. It's like small windows of a long history line, don't expect a long theater show, they do it nicely and if you enjoy these small moments, then you'll find this visit good.

We did enjoy it, it was deffinately worth the stay. If you are no good with high sounds, then don't come here.

We have seen a lot of shows in different areas of the world and I must say this was the worst one seen so far... But we found some comedy sides of it and had some fun.
Compared to the prise level the food was ok, but we were all hungry after the show (also the children).
Should have read the reviews before making the reservation.

“A bit of a let down. ”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

Looking forward to a show filled with wine, food and a show!
This had food, sprite and a show. However we couldn't understand a word of what was said due to poor sound system, no wine! Food was ok but not brilliant.
The show itself was pretty good but could've been better, it skipped over important bits and dwelled too long on bits that were seemingly irrelevant.
Would I go again? No.
Did I enjoy it? Yes, it was a night out and it was different but it could've been better.

“Disappointing, where was the wine?”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We agree with nearly all of the comments below, acoustics poor, far too long, over priced, food OK, but where was the wine? we had a jug of lemonade plonked down in front of us, what a con, no choice. Such a shame I expected a really good night out after the hype. No one likes to feel we haven't had value for money ,but we certainly didn't this night.

“Oh dear!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Visited with a large group and pretty terrible. As everyone said, was way too long, indeed we had organised a bus to collect us at 10pm and was still going then. Whilst there was as much drinks as you could drink, the quality of it was poor, the food was very much like school dinners. The worst part however was the performance - it was impossible to hear the narrator and so no real idea what was going on - Resembled something from legoland
