It took them 15 minutes to take our order and as we waited they brought out three complementary dips; pork, sundried tomatoes and gozo cheeslet - the pork dip was bland and tasteless, the other two were salty and not good. We waited for our food for more than hour, when we finally gained their attention and asked about the... More

This was so much better than we expected! King prawns flambed in pernod at the table, beautiful ribeye steaks and great staff! We'll definitely go back before we leave!

Menqa L'Antika never disappoints. Thanks Gordon and Joselle for consistently providing us with some of our most memorable meals of our holidays in Marsalforn. Highlights as always the Gozitan cheese skewers and the mushroom tart. Best pastry ever!

Food was simply superb. Ate in 10 different restaurants locally. 3 stood out as excellent, this one, Chez Amand and Oleanders. My wife thought the rabbit livers were amazing. For me it is the simple things done well such as the house freshly made spaghetti with anchovies and olives. Great service from Josetta.

The food here was average. 2 of us dined, one had tuna steak, that was still partly raw, and 1 had chicken in pankaces, that was just OK. The service throughout was slow, from taking the order, through to receiving the bill. Average all-round,- with far better restaurants in the vicinity, this one needs to up its game.

We ate here twice in our week in Marsalforn - the food ranged from good to outstanding. It has a lovely family run feel with friendly service. Apart from the food, it is small details like high quality cutlery and glassware that set it apart from the majority of Marsalforn restaurants. The spaghetti bottarga is a must-try dish!

This was the first restuarant we tried on our two week break and would like to have gone back for more but were foodies and wanted to try as many as we could. The kings prawns cooked in a pernot sauce and flambayed at our table which was a bit of a show stopper as everyone in the restuarant wanted... More

As part of our routine trip to Marsalforn, we decided to try this restaurant. Overall, it was far beyond our expectations. We experienced very high quality service, the staff were friendly and offered to take a picture of me and my family. The food was tasty and local, high portion sizes impressed me. It was a mystery as to why... More
