Fish , catch... More

This restaurant had a reasonable rating number 11 out of 231. However we can only report the facts as they happened on our visit in September for evening dinner. The first thing we noticed on arrival was that it only had one other table occupied and this was high season. The staff most welcoming and clearly wanted to help make... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal when staying in St Julians two years ago and returned to find nothing has changed - everything as good as we remembered. Good food, good service and a lovely atmosphere. Would return again on our next visit and would recommend.

Was looking for a good restaurant to treat a friend to lunch and came across Profumo di... I can’t believe that this restaurant is a couple of hundred metres from my house, and I’d never heard of it before. Small (50 covers), clean and simply furnished, the emphasis is definitely on the food. Exquisite dishes originating from Genoa, Italy, the... More

Tried this restaurant for the first time this evening based on recommendation and it did not disappoint. Service was excellent and food was equally as good. From fresh pasta, mussels and the rare roast beef special to start what a great evening. Don't walk past you really should try it. Thanks for a great dinner.

Review by Isabella (aged 12) ... Looked good, smelled wonderful and most importantly it tasted delicious. The pesto is a family recipe and the pasta fresh and cooked perfectly. For desert I had white chocolate and orange Regina tart and my dad had the Tiramisu which we shared ... Yum!!!! Definitely returning here before the holiday is over!

A very nice atmosphere, quiet, attentive service and very good food. The restaurant does not serve half bottles of wine and for some reason no Light Cola.

Thank R B
