“Peaceful and pleasant”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We took an extra cheesy pizza and chicken salad. Ingredients were fresh and pizza was appetizing and nicely done; a few ‘modified’ ingredients in the salad but nonetheless tasty! The dressing arrived after consuming a third of the salad, but was a yummy bonus.

An unusual mix of local and Asian staff. Service was awkward due to the Asian waitress’ shy nature. Smiles didn’t go amiss however!

Quiet area off the promenade, with a splendid sea view in the terrace. A calm location without people staring at you eating. Romantic too!

“The best view from table on the island”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

This restaurant is right on the seafront, you can almost touch the sea from the table. We went there specifically for seafood but they had a Chinese menu as well. Great service and reasonable prices. Red maltese wine should also be sampled here.

“The best food in Qawra”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

The best food in Qawra, after three weeks we tried most places. Also the best location downstairs where you can sit by the sea. I don't know about working conditions, but if the owner does not appreciate his staff it's tragic. The service is excellent and the food homemade by a geeat chef (including the beef burgers). Warmly recommended.
