Reasons for trip

This is a larger restaurant and very popular with locals as well as tourists – always a good sign. Just up the road from the DB San Antonio on Tourist Street, it is easy to find. It has a comprehensive menu, very friendly staff, and the food is excellent. This is one restaurant where the Set Menu is a very good choice, but note you need a good appetite to make the most of it!

We both ordered stuffed mushrooms as a starter, but while we were waiting, we were also provided with a basket of sliced Maltese bread (which seems to have no ill-effects like standard white sliced bread in UK) plus bigilla and water biscuits. This would have been enough as a starter for us on its own, but the stuffed mushrooms were irresistible too.

As a main course, the lamb shank with vegetables and roast potatoes was, according to Leslie, the tastiest lamb he has had for a long time. My half a chicken in honey glaze, salad and chips was enough to defeat anyone after the starters! I dutifully struggled to eat it all but had to surrender in the end, even leaving ¾ of the chips. After a break, we tackled the chocolate sponge cake and apple pie, but only on the understanding they were each half portions.

There are other choices, of course, including rabbit, a Maltese favourite. We haven’t tried it yet, but as it is farmed rather than wild rabbit we are assured the meat has a softer taste. Clearly, the set menu is a great menu choice even if you have a big appetite and is excellent value at €14.50 per person. Next time, we would ask them not to bring the bread before the starter!
