The Best of Rizzu

We've been there on a Monday afternoon. The atmosphere was calm, relaxing and full of light. Summer type. Once seated we were offered the menus and served with drinks. My friends took CERNA and TONN, both fish plates while I took the pasta al Salmone. The plates are generous there and the wine is... read more

Visited last evening with some friends in the hope of enjoying a nice fish dish... We arrived at around 9ish and where greeted by a very friendly server, gave us the menu and asked us for drinks. As for starters I ordered aljota and my friends took 2 pasta dishes which we very much enjoyed. To my disappointment the main... More

Booked for our son, daughter in law and two grandchildren aged 5 and 8. Service was very good and the 2 large fish we chose were beautifully cooked and served hot with ample fresh salad and hot fries. Altogether a lovely end to a lovely day.

I could not believe the excellent seafood here, and the platters covered the entire table. Great flavours, great variety... What a wonderful experience in Marsaxlokk...

Staff wasn't very good and nice, we didn't get receipt and we had to go to the bar to pay by ourselves. On the sheet of paper there was only total price, the bill was high and not adequate for the food we've eaten. Food was generally ok but the atmosphere was not.

One of the best meals I've ever had. Nice and refreshing with the air condition with a lovely setting inside. The sea urchin pasta was delicious and I enjoyed the variety of ice-creams. You will definitely receive good seafood here. The local wine is also excellent and quite possibly the best I've tasted.

Fabulous food and service, we were a party of 12 celebrating a birthday, the staff couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating when our taxi booked for 11pm didn't arrive until 12.15.

A lovely setting on the front at Marsaxlokk. We ate a family Sunday lunch outside on the terrace - each having a different main course. I had the mixed seafood - which was OK - although a little oily and slightly overcooked. The prawns had not been cleaned properly. My eldest daughter had the swordfish - by far the best... More

Situated in the picturesque town of Marsaxlokk, this wonderful place serves the freshest seafood that I have experienced to date! Very generous portion sizes so you are definitely getting your money's worth! Very baby friendly due to their availability of high chairs and ability to make simpler dishes for them! There are many waiters and waitresses there to cater to... More

We chose this restaurant because it was recommended by two of our travel guides. It turned out to be a real tourist trap. The bread and mezze were not good--a bad sign. We ordered the mixed fish and seafood platters. Both were plentiful, but tasteless. My three fish dish was dominated by swordfish, which was so bland I smothered it... More
