This restaurant is exceptional. The building is beautiful and historical, the owner has an impressive wine collection and the service is friendly and professional. They source a lot of their produce from a local farm so have a wide knowledge of the ingredients and the waitress even farms the honey they use. The menu was traditional and the food cooked perfectly, they also add some special touches that really make a difference. This restaurant is run by someone who really knows what they’re doing and has a lot of passion and skill. We spent a week in Malta seeking out the top recommend restaurants on the island and this was our favourite. It was also great value, we ate poorer meals for more money while we were there.
Spectacularly delicious and cozy restaurant featuring perfectly prepared local ingredients and the most friendly and professional service imaginable. By the end of the evening I kind of wanted to move in. Creative dishes of just the right size and complexity to show off the ingredients. Cheese, honey, etc made by the chef or friends of the chef. Adorable. A bit of a splurge but not nearly as expensive as it feels or tastes. I’ve eaten all over the world and will remember this meal always.
We had dinner here our first night in Malta and it was divine. The interior is breathtaking, taking you back in time! Our waitress was helpful and attentive, explaining the menu and where the produce comes from (lots of it is fresh from the owners family farm). We ate the chicken breast and the Veal and both were delicious! Highly recommend!
Super cool place. Gr8 food, nice and friendly staff.. best place in Malta.
Found this place through article in Culture Trip app, and it was so worth going up and down small sidestreets and alleys to find it. To say that I had the most fun, hilarity filled, night with charming and gregarious owner Charlie and his wonderful warm assistant Samira, is to say nothing at all! Such a cosy little place, full of history and Charlie’s loves, amongst them music, especially jazz. Food is down to earth, classic Maltese dishes, as though you dropped in to your grandmother’s for something homey. I opted for antipasti (it is enough for two!) and rabbit. It is the service that takes the crown here, and you feel like you got reunited with long lost family.
