Food and drink
Eating here with a Maltese acquaintance she told me this was real Maltese food as Mama used to make it. All I can say is; Mama was a damn good cook. There is no menu and what is on offer changes daily according to what is in season. Tuesday night is rabbit night – rabbit being Malta’s national meat.
For pudding, try their famous Cassata Siciliana – delicate and not oversweet.
Traditionally clad waiters serve at white-clothed tables beneath wine racks and lines of pickle jars in several small rooms.
It's low-key but friendly. Staff are happy to answer questions about the food.
It's behind a Dickensian shop front just off Malta’s main square.
Prices are not listed on the blackboard – most diners here have a rough idea what a meal will cost them: in the region of 25 euros a head (but check if you are concerned).
