Expert review of Ic-Cima

A rooftop Mediterranean restaurant with fantastic views and good food.

Watch the sun set over the Med eating freshly-prepared regional dishes. I much prefer this place to the more touristy restaurant across the road, but it doesn’t appear in most guidebooks – it does in mine!

Food and drink: 

There is beautifully presented Italian and Maltese food – pastas, steaks, fresh fish…

Ambience: 

The decor is bright blue, yellow and white. The inside conservatory-style restaurant opens onto the roof terrace which is definitely the place to be in summer.

Service: 

It's pleasant and reasonably efficient – not that it matters if you have a table by the terrace balustrade. I’d happily sit here all evening.

Location: 

It's at the top of the hill on the south side of Xlendi Bay looking out over the bay and the open sea. There are fabulous views – and usually a cooling breeze.

Price advice: 

Starters are around 7-8 euros, mains 10-20 euros.

Tables to book: 

Request the ones at the edge of the terrace – it's the best place to enjoy the fantastic views.
