Nothing special. Pizza was ok. Chicken salad was a pool of cabbage with a couple of slices of chicken meat with barely any taste. Service wasn't anything to be amazed either. The best of the experience were the views and the restaurant itself. Not sure...More

The location of the restaurant is hard to beat with its view out over the water. The pizza I had was disappointing but the meal was fairly inexpensive. It is certainly one of the better eateries in the area.

So good we ate here every night! with views over the sea, good selection of options including vegetarian for my husband. Swordfish was excellent. Great Maltese wine and all very reasonable in price. Well worth a visit

The food was really interesting. I had duck with grapes and nuts. Well prepared, nice and tender. The service was average to be honest. Not bad but not exceptional either. The location was nice but I'm not sure of I would go again.

We ate here three times and had excellent and prompt service with a good choice for all tastes.Tables near the sea for couples at night are quite romantic.The burgers and ice cream are particularly good.
