Here one is certain to find and an enticing and exclusive atmosphere where the centre of attention is the pristine and unspoiled natural culinary flavours.

Fresh fish and shellfish arrive daily from local fishermen, creating, with certainty, a peak of individual interest or the ideal fare for a special occasion. All of which may be enjoyed with an ideally selected aperitif an impeccably paired wine, and concluded with a digestif from the wide selection on offer.

    We went to have dinner and some chair’s cousins were wet.. afterwards, accidentally, the waiter split the whole beer over my mum so her clothes were super wet when having dinner. The food was super tasty but it arrived super late, we were waiting more than an hour four three plates of pasta… We would appreciate if they had had a nice gesture with us but nothing. Really disappointing experience.. Not coming back in our case :(

    We ordered the pumpkin risotto, black angus filet and grilled season vegetables and cauliflower gratin. Everything was absolutely delicious! Flavour, texture, preparation. It was perfect. I had made a special request for a romantic table and we got it. Right on the deck, all alone. Very romantic

    Another wonderful evening at the Paranga. The team there are always so friendly and professional. They knew it was our anniversary so we’re even more attentive. The chef came out and helped me choose a fish and explained how he would prepare it for me. We had seafood and steaks between us - it was all delicious. Thank you Paranga! 😍

    Excellent food, perfect service and friendly staff. It was my husband’s birthday and they bring us desserts with candles. It was really nice. The view is outstanding. Perfect Italian food with a real taste of Italy. The waiter suggested to us pasta with seafood and it was amazing Thank you so much and we’ll definitely come back

    Food and service excellent. Good quantity while not over facing you. When the sun went down it went a bit cold and the staff kindly closed the doors and the sliding roof. Make sure you make a reservation as the restaurant is very popular.

    My guests were immensely satisfied with the food. First time they had chargrilled octopus as a main course and they loved it. I had to have soup only owing to a post op diet I must follow. The Chef prepared an exquisite bisque based soup that was the highlight of my week. Fantastic

    Food was unseasoned and poorly presented. Having visited a number of fantastic restaurants across the island, this really was a let down. I’m surprised hotel intercontinental are linked to it.

    A pleasant Sunday lunch, food was tasty and well presented. However, it would be good to have a canopy outside as it was too hot in the afternoon and thus we could not enjoy our food and ambience as much as we would have liked.

    We enjoyed all the food except for the fritto misto - specifically the white-bait and fish fillet bites. It tasted very fishy, like either it's not fresh or not seasoned well. The others food though, specially out mains were on point and portions were just right.

    Rather disappointed in our New Years Eve lunch. My carrot & fennel soup was good, the fish soup spicy & the selection of bread rolls were nice. Beef fillet very good, however the white fish (sea bream & sea bass) on the roasted selection were tasteless, prawns cooked nicely & had flavour. Despite a sunny 17 the wall heaters were on & there were no open windows, didn’t feel very Covid safe I’m sorry to say.
