Extensive menu to suit all tastes. Popular with locals and families. Would... More

We came especially for fresh seafood and they totally over cooked everything. Very disappointed with the meal as the restaurant was quite expensive for what was dished up. Don't waste your money coming here.

We were fortunate enough to have a local that we worked with book us a lunch table on Good Friday. Walking in does take you back a bit as its massive inside. It was already packed with locals enjoying the holiday with a mix of families, couples, large and small groups all seeming to have a good time. I ordered... More

Went to Ir-Rizzu with 2 friends. I asked for fresh Tuna or Grouper Steak but they said they were not available as it was not season. I usually appreciate when something is out of season, it means that what you order IS fresh! My friend ordered Steak with mushroom sauce and the other two ordered Snapper. I also had pan... More

I have been going to Ir-Rizzu for as long as I can remember and I never left hungry. My favourite dish is the spaghetti al Nero di sepia, it's the only plate I take. The service is prompt and friendly. The food is always fresh, and you can taste it. True it may be a bit pricey but the food... More

Sunday lunch is for the family in Marsaxlokk. The restaurant was extremely busy but a great atmosphere and pretty prompt service. The food was excellent - I had a mixture of fish which included sea bass.

Had a main course salad to share between two, cost €10, would have cost €1 to put on the plate, disappointing. Aljotta fish soup was tasty, no bread top up was offered. Not a great meal.

Nice place and nice atmosphere. Nothing special about food. We ate far better king prawns and calamari at various other restaurants.
