Thought I would never go to a McDonald’s again…

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

I was late, hungry and stressed. I had to sacrifice any pride towards not going to McDonald’s… ever. I did my well deserved 2 years on the kitchen floor back home in Sweden and promised myself never to eat or even visit the place again… I failed.

Anyway, I guess the Spinola branch has to be considered one of the better McDonald’s restaurants. Would like to try the café someday… I just have so much against McDonald’s. 
Guess what, I asked for “take out” as mentioned on the receipt. Of course I didn’t get it that way… 2 options… 50% risk to fail, tough life 🙂

Rafael restaurant St. Julian’s Spinola bay Malta – A sunny Sunday lunch!

Monday, February 16th, 2009

As the past days has been freezing cold we’re at least happy to see the sun again. A perfect day for a lunch at Rafael restaurant in St. Julian’s Spinola bay. “This is pure quality of life” I was saying silently saying to myself. I don’t mind that it will probably take me half an hour to get my food ordered, I will happily sit here and just enjoy the sun!

Oliver’s restaurant St.Julian’s Malta – A great Valentine’s dinner

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

Last time we went to Oliver’s they informed about the set menu for the upcoming Valentine’s day. So pleased about our previous visit we decided to spend the Valentine’s dinner at Olivers restaurant in St. Julian’s. 

Unfortunately the battery of the camera lasted only for the starter 🙁 But rests assure that the veal for main course was cooked to perfection!

Oliver’s restaurant Malta

Friday, February 6th, 2009

I’ve been passing by Oliver’s (Old Zeri’s) a few times and always admired how nice it looks. Dark wood, red walls and just such quality look and feel.

Tonight was the night when Oliver’s should been given it’s first verdict by We’ll make it short and easy, what a great place. I actually saw a review on tripadvisor just an hour before we left, a British couple who had been dining around in the St . julians area but never really enjoyed it before th
ey discovered Oliver’s.
We wern’t disapointed either, the menu is Italian having Duck, beef, lamb and fish as main courses. Short and simple, thats the way it should be.
Now let the images speak for them self…
