Oh come on my title says it all. We had mussels to start (about 8 euros). Then I had the most delicious spaghetti with prawns and courgette. I ate every morsel. Husbands penne with spinach and parma ham not quite as good but he doesn't love pasta as much as me. Pastas about 8 euros too. Even the wine was only 9 euros and it was white, cool and crisp just as you would expect. Ask to be on the enclosed terrace so you can watch the waves lap below you. Lovely.

This restaurant is right on the bay at St Julian's and you are able to hear the water splashing on the rocks below the main restaurant.
The pizza server here was epic in taste and also for value.
Atmosphere was a little lacking, but we had sat down to dinner in the early eveing (7pm) so things were a bit quiet.

Always busy and I can see why. Unpretentious little restaurant, Helpful and efficient staff. Ideal for a good value meal in informal surroundings. Very enjoyable.
