Food and drink

The mainly Mediterranean and Maltese dishes major on meat for the main courses – including rabbit, the national meat of Malta – but also with seafood options.

Ambience

I particularly like to eat in historic settings and this is a nearly 400-year-old mill with a traditional Maltese stone vaulted interior decorated with modern trappings. There is a pretty outside too for al fresco dining. It's relaxed and informal.

Service

The service is friendly and good.

Location

It's in the middle of Mellieha village (it's actually more like a small town).

Price advice

Starters cost 5-9 euros, and mains are mostly 16-18 euros. The set early-bird menu is three courses for 14 euros.
