“Good restaurant, feeling of family warm”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This was the first meal we have in Malta, we were egar to look for some maltese food and a proper dining after long flight travelling. We just walked along the street near by our hotel. We chose this one becasuse this restaurant gave us warm feeling from the decration inside (it was a windy night) and it has already accomodated several table of cheerful customers. We knew some special food for Malta, like rabbit, fish soup (aljotta) and sea food. We ordered Rabbit and Calamari as main cause and fish soup as starter. The fish soup was (temperature) hot and delieous, much of fish inside and we didn't expect the portion was enough for two people! And apart from Maltese bread, there were also maltese biscuits with some home made maltese dip sauce proived as complementary! The waitress (or owner?) told us how to eat maltese biscuit and how the local would use hand when having rabbit. The food was good but really too much for us two Asian (each main cause has two people's portion!). The waiter told us frankly that they knew the portion may be too much for us, or even Eurpoean, but they had to make it large portion as local Maltese would not come if the portion is not big enough. And we told we would like to take away the remaining food. They fully understood and were happy to pack for us! Recommend to have a visit in the area!

“It rarely gets better than this, superb food, excellent wines and a credit to the owner”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We took 2 guests with us to make up a party of 6. We had starters that would feed an army, main courses that were huge and wine and drinks in excellent surroundings, excellent staff and VERY reasonable prices. A must if you are hungry.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Visited a couple to times, opting for the set menu €13.50. Now usually when buying a set meal you tend to get smaller portions, not so at this restaurant. The meals are fantastic, served by friendly staff. They even served little Maltese appetizers before the starter. Highly recommend a visit.
