    We chose for nine lives 2 evenings in a row. The staff was very friendly, checking several times if everything was as wanted. The food came in time and was very tasty! I would definitely recommend the sushi. Fresh ingredients, presented with a nice touch. Great location, with a nice view at the beach when the sun goed down.

    The food is fine but nothing to ride home about. It is also quite expensive, when there are far better restaurants with a better value for money. I went with my mum and we had 1 starter each (gyoza and calamari fritti), 1 main each (risotto and tortellacci), 1 cocktail each, 1 fondant, 1 espresso and 1 frangelico. This very uninspired and frankly small dinner cost us almost €85. In my opinion this is quite high considering that we had frozen fried starters and pasta. We didn’t have meat or fish. I wouldn’t recommend this, better off going at Marea or Noni for those prices.

    Service was a little slow. Food stayed on counter waiting to be brought to the table for ages. The rocket in the steak salad was all mushy and inedible. Not very good.

    Manoj, Ravi and the team were fantastic. Decor was sublime. The vibe was spot on for winter Malta nights. The food fantastic and the bar superb. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good chilled night in Malta. Also shout out to Manoj for making my wifes 25th birthday extra special and going the extra mile!

    All the food but especially the sushi was excellent! We got there for a 6:30 booking to discover it was happy hour until 7pm and the 241 on cocktails (frozen strawberry daiquiris!) were a very welcome addition to our meal. Staff went out of their way to accommodate our 17 month old daughter. We will definitely be returning before our week ends!

    The food was excellent however, the service was terrible. We spent half an hour waiting before a waiter came to take our order and after ordering dessert, it took them half an hour to bring it for us. We were seated outside and there were many tourists drinking, all standing up and surrounding our table.

    The location and restaurant was very nice.. but unfortunately the food was not good at all. Presentation and service was good. The chicken Satay strips were not as advertised online. They were chicken thighs with skin and bits of bone included in the curry sauce. Terrible. The online menu was not the same as the paper menu. The burger was so over-cooked that it was very hard. (Fries were good) The grilled chicken skewers were cheap meat and over cooked again! It was supposed to be a birthday meal so it was all very disappointing! A suggestion would be to make sure the food is made as well as the presentation.

    Food is very good and a vast range of choice to spoil yourself. The only thing I don’t like serving the burgers with chips in a wooden tray. Is it possible if I want a plate it can be served in it? Thanks would visit again 👍.
