Another excellent meal for a non fish eater. All the food was freshly prepared, everything concerning the selection of fish and weight was explained very fully before we placed our order and the meal was prepared to perfection.

We really enjoyed our meal and the bustling atmosphere in this fairly large quayside restaurant. Service was perhaps efficient rather than friendly but the quality of the fish shone through. Good desserts too.

I was in Marsaxlokk with friends and wanted lunch and we decided to go for a name we had been familiar with from the past rather than the many competitors which have now sprouted up along the sea-front. The decor is bland though clean. The service was slow and indifferent. And the biggest issue was the food - two of... More

Hi First of all thank you for your visit and photo taken Our portion of Lampuki is circa 500g which is not just a small piece of fish and in the end Did you complain? Did you get a remedy for your complain? Or maybe posting a complain on Tripadvisor is more important to you?????ds Regards More

We dined here for lunch. The fish was delicious BUT the waitress was very coy about the price of market fish - market price by weight was the only response. When we got the bill the fish we had chosen was 50% more than any fish listed on the menu. It soured the experience for us somewhat.

I've visited this restaurant on various occasions: father's day, valentine's day and casual dining with friends. The seafood is always delicious especially the "pulpetti tal-gambli". Portions are very generous and nibbles are given beforehand. The service is always very great and efficient. Place has a relaxed ambiance, good for family meals but even dining out with that special someone. Some... More

It is rare that my wife rates a place higher than me, but this is one of those. It is not that there was anything wrong, and her mussels were pretty yummy, but otherwise, there wasn't a lot to love about the food or the atmosphere. The service was solid, but I generally expect that at a reasonable restaurant (as... More

This place was decent. I tried the stuff calamari, which was interesting but a huge portion. I ate less than half! The mussel appetizer was tasty. The mussels were well seasoned and well cooked. The waitstaff was relatively attentive. The restaurant was basically empty though, so I would have expected a bit more attentiveness. Rather, most of the waitstaff were... More

This is one of the best fish restaurants ( for me the top one) in Malta. In a lovely village of the fisher men's in Marsaxlokk

I went to this restaurant in winter and had the spaghetti with sea urchins, I was very pleased and had a very generous portion which I expected for a 16 euro plate of spaghetti. Following this lovely experience we decided to go to this restaurant for my birthday in july. The second time round we had such a horrible experience,... More

We have just been to Ir-Rizzu following some pleasant experiences before but this time round we ended up disappointed. First of all the kitchen staff are not properly and safely dressed for example having one of the cooks wearing shorts, clogs and MIGHT I ADD NO SOCKS, sleeveless shirt and then on top of it all a cap with no...
