Extremely good, as usual.

We have been regular diners here for almost 9 years when we are on holiday in Marsalforn. It has never a disappointment. The sunset views are amazing, as is the welcome from the owner, Chris. This visit we had Beef and Mushroom risotto and the fillet Sea Bream, which was cooked to perfection. The... read more

The location is great, the food is not good enough for the price but the service was terrible. We were offered a table but then someone else told us we couldn't have it so I said if they were too busy we would go elsewhere and lo and behold we were given the table straightaway but on reflection we should...

A wonderful restaurant in the small village of Marsalforn which serves some of the best fish dishes I have tasted and offers exceptional views of the small village. We were served a welcoming bruschetta platter that started off our dinner, after which our starters arrived: a carpaccio (number of marinated pieces of raw fish) and a mixed dish of antipasti;...

The location of this restaurant is splendid with an outstanding view that leaves you breathless. You are soon welcomed by the friendly staff and in particular the owner himself who comes hail or shine is always ready with a smile on his face. Specials of the day are always suggested by owner himself. As complimentary we were offered bread and... More

Service was excellent. Lucky to get seating outside as we hadn't booked until about one hour before on a Friday night. Food was gorgeous.

There is a wonderful view of the sunset over Marsalforn Bay from the upper floor terrace of this restaurant. Then there's the restaurant. We had a nice welcome from the owner & his family but were then handed over to two men in black who do the serving in perfunctory fashion. You start with the highlight, the bruschetta, really very...

You can find 'Arzella' nestled amid a corner in 'Marsalforn', walking distance from 'Għar Qawqla', and it has to be one of my favourites on the island. The staff, including owner Chris, are very welcoming and inviting, they always recommend exquisite food and the wine selection is divine and also affordable! Seafood is definitely recommended at Arzella, it's what it's... More

In Marsalforns harbour there is a row with restaurants. At the very end of it, up a little stair, you find Arzella. The food is a notch better then the rest of the retsaurants and the staff very friendly and service minded. The best things we found out, was their desserts! So much better than what many restaurants provide in... More
