Excellent food, the best I ate in Malta. The mussels were just brilliant. Great service and attention from the staff. Better to book a table in advance. Highly recommend it. It’s great food experience.
Went dining here without a booking, we were lucky enough to enjoy a table for 2 just feet away from the sea. This was the first time we tried this restaurant and it was fantastic. Service was precise and fast, the organisation is systematic. Food ordered was fresh, including the bread which melted the butter. Octopus stew reminded me of the true taste of traditional cooking. My compliments go to all the team. Not to be missed people.
Superb food and service. Has to be the best restaurant we ate in. Advisable to hook for a table overlooking the sea but if you’re interested in good food they will usually find you a table.
Incredible service, pretty good food. We had a rib eye, the Kartell pasta and some chicken something pasta, all pretty good. The rib eye felt a bit undercooked for medium in my opinion. The Location is very good! Internal space is very stylish! Definitely worth a visit while on the sister island.
A delicious meal to end the day. We started off the night with a starter that was offered on the specials menu: baked clams. Which was followed by grilled and stuffed calamari, and linguini frutti di mare. We finally ended the meal with a tiramisu and some frangelico (which was offered on the house). It was a truely scrumptious and mouth watering meal. Highly recommend!
