Tasty food in a quaint restaurant. Try the rabbit it was gorgeous! Fresh fish was beautifully done also.

The service was good and the menu promised authentic flavours, unfortunately the flavours were not there for me and my husband . The rabbit was bland and tough. The fish was nice but again boring no flavours. The chef was not creative enough.

We had a decent dinner. Lured by the 5 stars but it could not live up to expectation. Food was mostly ok. Potatoes not completely cooked. Salad was in big chunks. We had fish dishes which were almost ok except fit the prawns which were...More

A lovely ambiance, friendly helpful staff and delicious food! This place is hidden from the busy main street but was lovely and I will definitely visit again.

Great food, husband asked if his steak could be pan fried rather than grilled and they accommodated and cooked it to his taste. Lovely little place, great selection of food.

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is great, tasty well presented and really good value for money. Great if you want to eat local food

Considering how close this gem is situated to the hustle, bustle and sometimes garish town that is Paceville, it is a dream find. Old world decor, intimate surroundings and a genuinely novel menu provide a seriously pleasant evening, allowing you to recover and get back...More

A stone's throw from the Hilton, Maltese Mama doesn't look like a lot from the outside, but the inside is a cosy, friendly family restaurant offering great value 'home-cooked' meals. There were a number of large groups in when we went for dinner and the...More

This restaurant is buried away in the back streets behind the Hilton Hotel. There's nothing flashy or showy about this place - they don't need it. The staff are lovely and go out of their way to accommodate you (including allowing us to sit outdoors...More

Questions & Answers
Hi Mr.Andy c I apologize for the inconvenience.I checked regarding the booking and I did not find anything under your name.Are you sure you booked to the right website? We open just for dinner so If you were calling during the day No one would be on duty to answer you.That could be the reason no one took your calls.Maybe if you tried calling after 5.30 in the evening, we would have answered immediately. When it comes to leaving a review to a restaurant you have not been to,I find that completely wrong. Myself, as a client and a manager, I would never leave a good or especially a bad review to a place I have not visited.I think that is a bit rude and shady! Please note that the address on Trip advisor is good so it would work perfectly on google maps and google earth. King regards Paulrick Spiteri I
