good value for money

Although most of the tables are on the pavement, the dinner has a fantastic view of Marsalforn bay. We took mussels in shell and a local fresh fish - both were fantastic.Service was excellent.

We went to this restaurant last night for dinner with our two children and my parents. Never again. Over priced, badly cooked food. The octopus salad came with oranges and potatoes - for someone who is used to seafood this is not served in the traditional Maltese way. Grilled calamari was sent back based on looks alone - it was... More

First of all as a Hungarian I felt like home as many Hungarians are working in this restaurant. Service was great. We had fish for main course for 4 people, and it was amazing! We had to wait for it a little but worth it and in the meantime we got 2 side dishes which were also very nice. Be... More

We went for lunch and had a good meal. We had pasta as a starter which was good but not outstanding. However the steak and fresh grilled calamri were excellent. Service was very good and a lovely location.

A visit to this restaurant is an absolute must if you're in Marsalforn or anywhere nearby. The food is unbelievably good, the location by the sea is awesome and the service is impeccable! Our waiter had skills beyond a five star restaurant, he was always ahead of things and knew all there was to know about any dish served. It's... More

It's hard to know where to choose when you see a line of restaurants at the waterfront but it was the lovely table settings that made us stop for lunch at Ta Pennellu. We asked for the Snack Menu as we had dinner booked elsewhere later that evening. Great selection of fresh pastas/salads served with wonderful light fluffy bread! An... More

A group of seven were catered for on several nights and on each occasion all our food was to a good or very good standard. I had argentinian steak which was perfection. The chef did this at the table. One of the better sea front restaurants at a fair price. Good local wines too

I read a number of reviews about Ta'Pennellu and ate here this evening. The food was outstanding; we ordered the chef's special rib eye steak and the fillet. Asked for them rare and the chef cooked them for us on an outside brasserie next to our table and both were spectacular. Service was first class and the chef conversed with... More
