“The receptionist”
Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

The food was not bad nothing special.
Once we where leaving we passed through the reception to leave and one of us was coughing and the receptionist rudely woke up and said that "if he coughs on me I will push him on the floor" and moreover he started swearing in maltese. Once we told him we're maltese he yold us that he doesn't care.in my opinion this person was hired by estilo and he is mucking it all up. Also when we were asking for the management he told us were and after got up to fight us.
So if you have any sens in you're mind please don't go there cause its danger

“Wow, great food, and lovely cocktail!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Mmm-mmm. The meal I had here was fantastic. My partner and I decided to have lunch here because we'd been walking most of the day and being as it was a lovely sunny day, wanted to eat somewhere outside. We passed Estilo and saw that there was a nice waterfall feature outside, with shaded areas, so thought this would be a good pit stop to have food. There was a great range on the menu from soups, to burgers to pasta, to sushi, amongst other things. The drinks menu was also really extensive. I had a peep at the cocktail menu, and my eye was caught by a rather cheekily named cocktail full of wonderful things - vodka, bailey, malibu and cream. Our waiter (Kevin) came over and took our orders, and the food was brought out in a good time. I ordered the penne alla re farouk - basically, pasta with prawns and spinach, cooked in a really good curry style sauce. It was delicious! Really tasty, and a decent amount too - all for a good price. The pasta option was good because you could have any type you wanted.
All in all, I would definitely recommend dining here. We had a great experience, and I hope you do too :)

“Poor”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

This is a good place if you want to have a beer and nibble on a snack while watching football on the number of TVs they have around the place. But dont expect much. Service is slow, food taste as if it was reheated in a microwave and the staff who are mostly foreigners always seem to get it wrong. There are much better places to eat in the area.

“Great menu great service”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

I simply cannot believe some of the bad reviews here. We must have eaten at this restaurant 10 times and each time found the service to be very good and waiters/waitresses polite, large portions and a great atmosphere. Never been disappointed.

“Funny taste, apologies and billed anyway”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Last week we went to Estilo since it is one of the few restaurants which opens until late. Unlike what others wrote in here, we found the staff to be extremely polite and spoke good English. Nevertheless we went there for food where some had burgers and some had pasta. The burgers were poor but edible while one of us had pasta with a very odd taste which felt like old oil. We complained and another plate of pasta was delivered, this time round no oil was used however the same taste was noticed at which point we started tasting each others' pasta which also had this funny taste. We came to the conclusion that it was either poor quality cream or poor cleaning of pans that resulted in the same taste of 3 different types of pasta.

Overall the place is really nice but the food has gone down the drain since my first time there.
