“lovely place to eat a local menu”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

We ate here nearly every night we were here,the nights we did not we regreted.The food was full of flavour and tasted delicious,we never had a bad meal.Plenty of local meals including rabbit and fresh fish the steak was cooked just as I asked.service is sometimes a little slow but this is usualy because all food is cooked fresh and they do get very busy at times.The building work outside is nearly complete as hotel opposite is due to reopen soon.Would recomend this as a place to eat to anybody,only open at night at the moment.

“So Good”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

I've tried, but there is no better restaurant in the Bugibba area. Okay the service might be a bit slow, but they're busy, and you're on holiday .. chill and have a drink.
Local delicacies were excellent, steak was well cooked and good value, local wines were of the best quality.
This is a superb restaurant, deserves a better status in an area full of some very average tourist places.
Four hungry men dined here very well for Euro 100, inc top local wine.
Go. you won't be disappointed .......

“Top quality steak, great service”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed the meal we had at Ta Pawla yesterday evening. We were shown to a nice cosy table for two toward the rear of the restaurant. From the menu I chose fillet steak with mushroom sauce, and my wife chicken breast also with mushroom sauce. We both opted for roast potatoes and vegetables. The meal was delicious - I always ask for my steak medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. Service was good and waiting time was good - we don't like to be hurried but also wouldn't want to be left waiting for ages and they got it just right. Wine list was good and prices were reasonable. The ambience was nice and I would recommend the restaurant for a romantic meal or a small family gathering / group of friends. We got into conversation with some Maltese couples sitting close by and they had also enjoyed their food. Friendly place, good food, reasonable prices - perfect!
