We did not have a reservation and the restaurant was fully booked; however, they were very accommodating and arranged a table as long as we would not take longer than 1:30hours to have dinner so we got down to it and fully enjoyed the experience...More

We ate here specifically to taste a range of typical Maltese dishes reading reviews about the tasting menu. It was interesting and the service and atmosphere were nice but not what I would call special. The waiter put some effort into helping us choose Maltese...More

Not surprising that the place was packed. Very central. They did find a space for us later on in the evening, we should have booked before. Tasting menu gave a great overview of the food of Malta. Nothing to dislike.

This nicely decorated resaurant is a gem. A number of small typical Maltese dishes are brought in, one after each other. Good wines are suggested that go well with the meal. A fantastic experience.

No time wasted perusing menus just order your drink of choice and the plates will arrive. Each course is explained at time of delivery - my favourite on our visit was the Octopus. A Rustic restaurant with loads of character and excellent service.

Managed to get a seat here on our last day and so glad we did. Loved all the small tasters with the recommended wine. More than enough to eat for lunch. Would have preferred one less savory dish and one sweet perhaps? Desserts were extra....More

It's a several course set menu, but they made changes to accommodate our dietary restrictions. Contact in advance - definitely recommend if they can help.
