“Best restaurant in Qawra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We have just returned to Britain after an enjoyable week's holiday in Qawra. Finding the Lovage Restaurant was only because someone recommended the place to us - it is actually very close to the well-established Plumtree and Overflow Restaurants. The restaurant is quite stunning - a bit
"Posh" even - and the food is excellent. The proprietors obviously have created an excellent environment with good interior and external seating. Friendly and attentive staff - and not too expensive at all. We went there twice during the week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place to holidaymakers or locals alike.

“Top Notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Don't mind the surroundings, because in this "back street" there's a hidden pearl. If you're only going out once for an utterly scrumptious dinner experience while you're in this area, this is the place to go. The service is excellent, the food is delicious and the sommelier has the best wine you can find. We had an wonderful evening, sitting out in the lovely terrasse. I hope we have time to come back before we leave the island.

“Best restaurant I've visited in a while”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Food was Divine and the service was up to standard. The restaurant has a great selection of fine wines and the sommelier was very educated regarding the wine in stock. He recommended a lavishing bottle of wine which we enjoyed. The prices are generous considering such lovely service! Definitely recommend this place to anyone and will be returning shortly!

“Spot of finesse in Bugibba”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

I've been to Lovage a few times now, as a group and even a couple. Ambiance is nice and quiet, whilst holding a chic, homely atmosphere. Food is divine and the menu is truly a gem, Chef and patron Matthew Schembri is truly pushing the boundaries with his culinary delights. Service is relatively good, very polite waitress and with their own in house sommelier we were definitely not disappointed with the wine, especially since on one occasion he even suggested a fantastic magnum bottle for the group! Though a bit slow at first when I went last we were made aware that the waiting staff had just been changed, so overall a great, very good restaurant, will definitely go again and look forward to them bettering my expectations as I'm sure that they can!!
