Made out of an old warehouse within the evocative inner city, this intimate restaurant sums up perfectly the 0 km process, the research for taste and quality, and the knowledge of Maltese wine and food.
The owner, Mr. Caligari, is very careful in presenting the recipes of his cuisine and in explaining the refined combinations of traditional flavour for each dish, resulted of local and seasonal produce, sourced daily and freshly prepared within hours of purchase.
