    The staff were lovely, food ok and view lovely. It is the perfect place for a party, not a relaxed dinner with friends. They have club music playing very loudly which is off putting.

    It was a deception. The food was really good, honestly, but the service was unacceptable. Too many waiters/waitresses walking around super stressful. We waited excessive time to have the dinner. It was so noisy and the atmosphere was too stifling

    Service was great, we were assisted really nice! The meat was ordered M but it was cooked M to well, the sushi roll & noodles were great! As for the boa buns they were good but need to cook a bot more the bun. Ambience was nice, though the lights inside the restaurant were very dim, could afford to be more 'bright'. Dessert was good , but recommend to write on the menu that it is enough to share. As for the prices they are a bit on the high side. Would recommend since there is variety of food. Will visit again!

    I used to go to nine lives and eat some of the best sushi on the island, however last night was a disaster. For starters we took the duck gyoza and pork belly bites which were really good. But then the sushi came and it was horrible , 5 tastless rolls , even the volcano roll was a huge disappointment and usually it’s one of the best. We complained to the waiter and gave us free deserts which was a nice gesture however , to my disbelief even the desserts are not as good as they used to be the fondant which came around 20 mins after the first two deserts tasted like butter , the filo grass was cold and the chocolate which was indicated as melted on the menu was more Like a pudding and the imqaret were just ok but nithing special. Given the prices had increased It would have been great to atleast keep the same quality or better it.

    The staff was amazing, the view was great and the food exceptional. What to improve to make it extra? The waiting should be shorter. After ordering it took at least half an hour before they served me. But overall, it was a great experience. The typical desert made it all worth it !

    The service and drinks were poor, the ambiance is amazing, it's not the first time I have visited Nine lives in various times of the day. but this was a poor experience compared to previous visits. The staff was too lazy u ignored us several times plus the drinks were very light

    Incredible restaurant. We went there 3 times during our 7-day stay since we liked it so much. The food is absolutely amazing (so are the cocktails), and the staff is so friendly. Worth every penny, had the most fantastic birthday dinner there. The sea view is stunning, and most nights the music isn't too loud. We loved the atmosphere; A stunner of a restaurant, and a must-visit if anyone is near St. Paul's Bay.

    Service needs to be improved for example no waiter came back to take our food order after ordering drinks but we had to ask to be served. Also there was no waiter to guide us to any available table when we asked for seating.

    Good food, but not a top service and ambience of shabby place, especially exterior. Toilet facilities are dirty and some features are broken - just as you can imagine in a beach toilets ((. But pizza and ceviche were very good.

    We loved our experience here. I am not the biggest fan of sushi, however their sushi was one of the best I ever had. Full of flavour. Their pizza was amazing too, delicious. Happy hour was from 5-7pm with refreshing and tasty cocktails available. Lovely ambience inside both in the afternoon and at night. We loved it :) Will definitely be visiting again.

    The food was below standard. Truffle fries were not truffled. And the chicken satay was not what one expects from chicken satay. It was more of a plate with chicken in a cream sauce, which wasn’t pleasurable at all.

    Food served not as per menu. Chillies in dishes not specified. Very slow service. Only 2 dishes out of 9 ordered were to standard. Long wait for drinks. Worst dessert ever, ordered brownies and ice cream. We were served with polenta lookalike and sponge texture soaked in toffee. At the end management expected us to pay also for car park even though it states it’s free for nine lives customers. Food containing chillies were deducted from the bill however all other complaints were unacknowledged. Worst experience ever.

    Beautiful setting, nice atmosphere. Some of the staff found it difficult to understand basic English, had to repeat things a number of times. Whereas other members of staff were wonderful. If you’re eating steak, they cook them more on the rare side. Just to be aware when you order. Regardless good food

    Was too noisy at our table, waiting staff slow and some do not understand plain english. Waiters need more training and should look smarter including the head waiter/manager. Food is good and location is fantastic for kids and those that want to chill!
