Reasons for trip

This is a little restaurant tucked away on the street parallel to Tourist Street and the San Anton hotel in Bugibba, and one we have walked past many times without a second thought. As we were here for a whopping two months (yes, really!) we have made a point of visiting some new restaurants as well as our old favourites like The Plum Tree.
It has a nice, cosy feel and does stretch further back into the building than you think, with photographs and memorabilia on the walls celebrating Winston Churchill – not sure why. Their main dishes are based on the fresh fish of the day, in this case it was poached, filleted sea bass and a favourite choice of other diners during the evening.
We ordered the main course, and a bottle of the local Green Label white wine, and after a couple of minutes asked if we could have some bread while we waited? At that moment, they brought out the warm bruschetta that was already being prepared, plus the basket of Maltese bread, so we didn’t need to panic at all!

Sea bass was wonderful, soft delicate taste and clearly as fresh as they said it was. I had salmon which was also beautifully cooked and presented. Although we didn’t need it by then, we struggled through scrumptiously creamy cheesecake dessert. I am not sure why we haven’t tried this restaurant before but will certainly call in next time we are there. It is all on ground floor so easy access, friendly staff, and at €44 for first class meals and desserts plus €10 for the bottle of wine, it was great value.

Sorry no photographs this time!
