Customer Reviews

Visited Rabat before Mdina. Ate downstairs. Food was lovely as was the service. Can thoroughly recommend here to eat

Initially planned to visit because of TripAdvisor reviews and was additionally incentivised by a lady at the entrance with a free aperitif voucher. It was a great experience, food is great, octopus stew was the best octopus dish I had, perfect and friendly service. Prices from the mid-range what makes the place even more worth to recommend.
