Excellent family managed restaurant!

A small but fantastic family run restaurant. The food is excellent and the fish is exceptionally fresh. Moreover, the staff is always helpful and efficient!! I recommend this restaurant and will gladly re-visit.

It's a very good place to eat fresh fish and good pasta with good service and good prices. They must invest in a good choice of desserts but apart from that all is very very good :)

I am not a great fan of fish, but when you eat there, you know it is fresh and delicious. In my opinion, this is the best restaurant on Malta (but of course I could miss something better;)). Prices are very reasonable, the whole meal is big enough to be full and happy when you leave this restaurant. It is... More

Went for Sunday lunch with my family. We have been to this restaurant more than once. The food was really good especially the fresh fish we had for our main course. The service was good and waiters were all very friendly. But I found the prices a bit expensive. Think about it to going there again.

We have come here before with some friends and had a really good experience, reason why we decided to come back with our family. Since it is Sunday and we knew that Marxaslok would be busy, we booked in advance. To begin with, though we had a reservation we had to wait for more than 30 minutes to get our... More

Living in Malta and having tried this place for more than once I can say that the food was good, however I won't be returning to this place again and I would not recommend it! Apart from having a reservation for 2pm and had to wait 30+ minutes to be seated we ended up being hugely charged for the consumed... More
