Food & Drink

On the ground floor, one finds a first class a la carte restaurant renowned by locals for its Fresh Fish, Lobster, Maltese dishes and Continental Cuisine. It has been awarded one of the top 150 rated restaurant in Malta and Gozo for over 10 years running.

The restaurant takes full advantage of being just across the road from the sea its large panoramic windows offers diners lovely views of the bay. Choppy menacing seas in the winter and dead calm waters full of boats in the summer.

The bar area offers an ideal corner for aperitifs and some space and time to study the menu. The food consists of genuine homely dishes. The fish is as fresh as can be - brought in by fishermen who moor within this same bay.

The surrounding area also thrives with farmers offering the freshest vegetables possible. Meats and game are all well represented with a healthy choice of duck, veal, beef, lamb and rabbit. The inevitable hearty choice of pastas is also available.

One must also try the large selection of sweet endings prepared at the restaurant itself, boasting such choices as fresh crème caramel, profiteroles, meringues, torta della nonna, cheese cake, fresh fruit and much more.

This family run restaurant is ideal for an unpretentious but rewarding lunch or dinner. Anthony Schembri, the owner, will most likely make time from the kitchen to visit your table and in his own polite and gentle demeanour discuss the daily specials, any special requests, wine options and will generally keep an eye to see that all is proceeding smoothly.

Nightlife, shops and bars can be found in the villages of St. Paul's Bay, Bugibba and Qawra, all within close distance.
