The beautiful Vittoriosa Waterfront, needed a restaurant of such caliber and style…and excellent food !! I have been a couple of times in summer, in this superb location in the south of Malta.
The restaurant formerly a Chinese restaurant, is the second one on your right, next door to Two and a Half Lemons. There are plenty of tables set outside, for one to enjoy the Valletta harbour and the luxury yachts that berth here. A smaller room situated near the bar accommodates a good number of guests (approx. 40). There is a large courtyard on the inside of the restaurant, which in my opinion should be better utilised, perhaps to accommodate more seating.
I have tasted a variety of appetizing dishes such as soup, seafood, meat and fish, all bearing a distinguished Mediterranean touch. The restaurant’s speciality is the ‘pesce al sale’, fish cooked in coarse sea salt. Accompanying the main courses are the grilled vegetables (aubergines and green peppers) along with delicious potatoes. The restaurant also offers the choice to have a mixture of two or three different dishes of pasta to share.
The choice of wine is vast, and the restaurant manager is always delighted to recommend the best choice to go with your meal. Service is prompt and overall good. A meal for two with starters, main course and foreign wine amounted to about EUR 60, which sounds decent to me !!
Well done guys …keep up the good work and the passion in preparing your tasty dishes!!
Reservations are highly recommended!
