Booked here for our anniversary. We had been before but not for nearly a year. Food and Service were just as good as we remembered. Very friendly and excellent food. Can't recommended it highly enough.

Visited this restaurant twice during our recent trip to Malta. The restaurant was recommended to us by Joseph from Central Suites and it did not disappoint. The first visit was early in the week and it was about half full which give a good indication. We were just walk in diners at about 9.00 pm and were well looked after... More

The owners are wonderful hosts and prepared really delicious, freshly cooked meals. Whilst quiet when we visited the atmosphere was lovely. Try the sea bream and rabbit stew...both really fantastic, accompanied by properly cooked vegetables (and more if asked for). Creme brûlée was sufficient for 2!!
