A "great dining experience" with "super quality food" that is "plated beautifully".

Nestled in the winding narrow streets of Lija, an old town house built in the heart of the village over 200 years ago has been restored. Using skills developed in some of the best kitchens on the island, this chic bistro brings to the table innovation and respect towards an array of high quality ingredients. This philosophy, paired with a love of service, creates a unique dining experience for the discerning patron.
Accompanying this exquisite food, is a selection of prestigious wines and other beverages to best suit the guests’ meals. Bahia, a prestigious navel orange that has been the pride of the people from Lija, is now honoured with a restaurant carrying its name. Delightful starters may include wild mushroom consomme’ with fermented king oyster sashimi, or the double agnolotti with a delicate smoked burrata and spring onion. For mains, you might want to sample the pan-roasted saddle of Irish lamb or pick your favourite from the fresh, locally-caught wild fish. Conclude with a selection of French cheeses or the delightful muscovado and hazelnut tart with candied Lija orange, segments and gianduia ice-cream. In the intimate setting of a typical Maltese village, a chic bistro is born.
