    Nice restaurant, although we didn't like as much the food, we ordered Beef Rib Eye medium and it came basically well done. You need to ask specifications of the food to know well what you are ordering because you can be disappointed if it's not what you imagined... For the rest, very friendly personal so i guess we just weren't lucky with the food

    We booked for the outdoor seating which is lovely but on arriving we asked to seated indoors as there was quite a strong breeze. We were offered seating near a large window. The Inside setting is beautiful and very relaxed. The service was excellent as was the food and the unusual aromas and flavours. The only little thing that I can crisitise is the background music which was repetitive. On the other hole staff were attentive to detail and it was an excellent overall experience.

    Although we booked a table beforehand, staff had to sort out a table there and then as it was not prepared. Resulting in staying very close to another couple. Personally, the quality of food did not meet our expectations, especially the sushi platter.

    Would have been 5 stars except I felt the dessert we had let the meal down. Starters and mains were great - varied choice with some unusual touches. We had the ‘deconstructed’ chocolate almond tart which was very dry and really needed a sauce or ice cream with it. The ambience was good with the dj and the view over the water. Would recommend the restaurant generally. We also received good advice from the server as to what sides went well with our mains. Although it took a while to get the bill and we were not asked how our dessert was otherwise I would have made a comment.

    Great ambiance and the perfect lounge. Service was slow during lunch even though place was not crowded. Maybe we made the wrong food choices or maybe the chef was having a bad day but food was just ok. Will go again for drinks as great vibe.

    Overall it is good. Food and cocktails are very good and the ambience is fantastic. However, the service is a bit slow. On more than one occasion we ended up waiting for the waiter for more than 10 minutes. It is a bit pricy.

    The 5th time that I dined at LOA and by far the worst! The music at 7 pm outside was so intrusive that we had to move inside. The standard of the food was unrecognizable from my previous dining experiences there when I highly rated the interesting cuisine! Last night was bland, chicken bone dry, portions very small, prices way above average, and my guests from South Africa were less than impressed. All and all a very disappointing and unsatisfactory experience. The manager did come and apologize and reduced our bill, but unfortunately, by that time, our evening was ruined.

    If loud music really bothers you, then that might be a deal-breaker for a select few. My parents are usually quite annoyed by loud music, but the decor, food, and service still blew them out of the water. Highly recommended. I haven't found a better steak or ceviche on Malta. It is a tapas style restaurant, but most people should be fine with 1 or 2 plates as they are quite large.
