We’ve been here before but there’s been a change of name.. staff were mainly the same. Have to say that on this occasion we were disappointed with the food and felt it was quite expensive. Will probably give this a miss Next year

We stayed in Valletta for 18days so can safely say we tried a fair few restaurants specifically for seafood - this was by far the best with a really beautiful dining experience. We arrived just before they opened without a reservation and even though closed...More

Well first of all Tripadvisor should change the name of this restaurant to Portocinno. Seafood is very good but service although very friendly can be a bit quicker. Nice location and nice terrace.

We had read of this place in a write-up published in an international newspaper. It was described as a ‘glassy, classy space’ with beautifully-prepared seafood, so we were of course very excited to try it. Alas, disappointment is a bitter taste. Since the article’s appearance...More

This historical place dating back to World War One came back to life after an extensive renovation. Situated on the waters' edge one can enjoy the views of Manuel Island and Sliema Fort while towering above are the great Valletta bastions. Our team of chefs created a brilliant Sicilian menu to complement this ambiance. One cannot miss the daily catch caught directly from our fishing vessels cooked AL SALE or ZUPPA adding some calamari and prawns for the best experience ever :)
