We visited in November just before the hotel was being closed for renovations. With just a few bottles of wine left on the shelf, the waiter made sure we had the best bottle available and looked after us exceptionally well.

We visited this restaurant two times with my wife, and on both occasions both the food and service was exceptional. John Paul, the manager was very professional on both occasions with his recommendations on the menu and wines. Awaiting for the refurbishment to be completed so as to dine here for the third time! Visited October 2015.

We ate at this restaurant during 5 evenings. 2 times we had fresh fish of the day - the fish was excellent, albeit with (too) little salt for the average german taste. The other three days we tried the lamb, the prawns and the filet steak, all three left little to be desired. Overall, we can definitely recommend this restaurant.

Fish in tempura batter with vegetables. Frankly disgusting. Two girl waiters were lovely but service overall was slow. Never again.

There is a pleasant bistro atmosphere in this restaurant attached to the Phoenicia Hotel but not the fine dining it claims. Indeed the hotel Phoenix restaurant was the more impressive. We had pleasant pieces of fish but the service was unacceptably slow. There are much better establishments in town

Very good and well presented food, first class service, reasonably priced. Can't see what more I can say to make up the 100 characters you insist on, surely it's suffice to say it's the best. If you want to know details go to their web page.

We had a very pleasant evening at The Pegasus restaurant. The service was impeccable and friendly. There was fine attention to detail. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. John Paul, the manager was very professional, helpful and provided us with some very interesting advice on what to do and see whilst in Malta.

We won a honey moon to stay in the main hotel, included in this was some meals in this restaurant. The service was first class and the food amazing. We got to try things we have never eaten before and it was all of excellent quality. Thank for a great experience

What a lovely find. We would recommend this brassiere to anyone. The food is exquisite and the service spot on and a lovely atmosphere. We enjoyed our visit so much we went back a couple of days later. It was just as good. Top marks.
