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...

visited on 2 holidays in Malta,best to book ahead for choice of table. Owners are friendly and helpful, the fish is fab, good choice of dishes and very decent wine list including local wines, felt rather smug on last visit on very hot day watching others who hadn't booked trying to secure a table outside as we lingered over lunch

Went here on our son's recommendation. We liked the idea that the restaurant is still keeping with the Maltese tradition of complimentary appitizers & Maltese bread however, the rest was unpleasant. My husband had fresh garlic prawns for starters. There was no garlic flavour to them but two garlic cloves on the side of the plate!! I tried two prawns... More

We went there with friends and small kids, the place is nice. And the food was very good. Fish and meat were both good. It's not the cheapest restaurant there but I would say regular prices for Malta.good value for money. I recommend it.

At any time of the year, Ir-Rizzu is one of the best places for fresh fish at the south of Malta. The place is air conditioned during the very hot months.

Great place for fresh fish. Always guaranteed the best fresh fish cooked to your liking. Let them guide you on their special starter and you wont regret it. Louise is the perfect hostess. Want to host friend who like fish in a fishing village - look no further.

Went with my family and a visitor for an evening meal at Ir-rizzu, thinking that it was supposed to be one of the top notch places to eat at Marsaxlokk. Oh dear, what a mistake! We ordered the starters which came in good timing but the main course seemed to take forever. When it did eventually arrive, my husband was... More
