The kitchen is open Thursday through Sunday, bringing you Brighton’s best Maltese-inspired dishes, made with love and perfect for sharing, using fresh, quality local ingredients.

  • Cuisines

    This venue serves International, Pasta, Brunch, European, Italian, Vegan Friendly and Vegetarian Friendly food.

  • A word from the chef:

    A myriad of influences make up the culinary landscape of the island of Malta. As civilizations and invasions traversed the land, the traditions and tastes of neighbouring and colonising countries were gradually woven into the fabric of Maltese cuisine. You’ll find strong influences from the Italians next-door in our Sicilian staples and seasonal, rustic flavours, as well as a genuine appreciation for hearty, home-cooked food. We’ll be serving up Mediterranean style meals cooked with love—and a contemporary twist.
