Have visited La Capanna quite a few times, but never found the time to write about my experience(s) at this lovely restaurant. I visit often Marsaxlokk mostly on Sundays when strolling at the market.

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.
