Good choice of fish, which are very decently priced. Although in a toursit area, the quality of the food is genuine and the fish is consistently fresh each time we dined. Helpful staff without being too invasive. Adequate selection of wines which are very well priced.

If you want a good meal, without feeling that you paid too much, this is the place to go to. The starters are especially good!

Surrounded by lots of locals we had a wonderful dinner. Friendly service, fresh fish accompanied with good vegetables and potatoes. The time between the courses was perfect as was the wine. One of the hidden gems amongst all the other harbour side restaurants.

Went to Marsaxlokk at the spare of the moment on Saturday evening and we're lucky to find a table. Delicious mussels starter followed by a plate of seafood tagliatelle. Great food and good value for money.

There a number of restaurants along the water front but I would recommend this one. They have a varied menu all at reasonable prices. Also although they did have fruit salad on the menu they made one for my partner.
