“Dont't even stop, there are so many better places”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We went attracted by the writing 'free appetisers' written outside. We did not see any free appetisers (or appetisers at all). Wanted a pint of Budweiser - did not have it. Wanted a pint of Strongbow - did not have it. Finally opted for Cisk.
Inside it looks like the living room of a normal private house. Outside there are only few tables and the location is not that good.

Top tips: 1. For a drink go to better places such as Hugo's, Barcelona, The Beer Garden

“Friendly atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed 5 November 2011

Following the directions of our travel guide we had the pleasure to discover this small family-run tavern.
There are only four tables outside and a couple inside. The atmosphere is peaceful and the owners so friendly.
We ordered the daily specials from the blackboard: "Pasta al Pesto" and Lampuka fish.
The "pesto" sauce they used is different from the original we are used to eat but was very good and rich in taste as well the quality of "penne" pasta they
cooked with. The fish was delicious, roasted with vegetables on the side.
They suggested to drink Medina a local white wine made with Vermentino and Zibibbo grapes, and that we liked so much to order it in other dinners during the week we spent in Malta.
