This place is probably the busiest in downtown Valetta and for a very good reason. The food is really delicious and the service even better. All staff members were attentive and ready to serve. What impressed me most is that when my meal came I realized it had bacon strips which I don't eat. When mentioned to the manager he... More

We had been watching this restaurant for a few days, it always seemed busy and it was in a good spot in Valletta. We eventually went in for dinner on our last night. We sat outside and were immediately greeted and lots of choice of menus given to us. We chose a starter of Crostini and mushrooms, then two specials,... More

Went on a Monday night for a vacation date night. It was raining, but they have a nice covered outdoor seating area. We wanted to try a Maltese red, so went with the recommended Delicata Sangiovese and the cheese platter. The platter was amazing with several delicious Maltese cheeses, crackers and excellent jam, olives and grapes. The wine was nice,... More

We've been here several times and we always get excellent service and food. The menu is very varied which is great because you can try something different every time and it's always been fantastic. Very nice location and ambience and exceptional value for money. I highly recommend it.

Food came quickly and nicely presented on slate with fries in individual basket and salad. The Valletta burger was 2 burgers with blue cheese. The burgers were so tasty, best I've had.... More

On the top of my list in Valletta. Staff are attentive and pay attention to finer details. Kept me very happy. Food was great, had the parmesan chicken! The music could do a makeover though! But all good!

This is a family run business and we do our best to give the home made food feeling. We mainly cook A La Carte therefore the menu changes twice daily, depending on what is fresh during the day. For those that are in more of a rush there are the snacks and burgers menu. Being exactly in the middle of Valletta one could shade themselves from the scorching sun under our lovely trees whilst having their well deserved break.
