If you visit Malta, don't miss a stop in Marsaxlokk on Sunday morning. it is an old fishing village with many Luzzi (Luzzu = Maltese traditional boats). Here, in front of promenade, you'll find this restaurant. I went there several time, never disappointed! Although the restaurant is large, it is always crowded, so it's better to reserve a table in... More

My mother and boyfriend took the fried and calamari in sauce. The calamari was rubbery and tasteless - the most disappointing. I had local fish steak and it... More

Stopped in Marsaxlokk during a Hop-on-Hop-off tour and asked one of the vendors at the market for a recommendation. We went to Ir-Rizzu and thought the restaurant was closed. As we were turning away one of the waitresses came running after us and encouraged us to enter. We were a bit weary as it was empty inside at prime lunch... More

Service quite good, waiter very helpful. You can see the food being cooked through the glass partition to the restaurant. Food was very well cooked and tasted very nice.

Old fish restaurant on seafront promenade. I had octopus on the advice of a Maltese friend, but it was a bit of a disappointment because the garlic was undetectable. The service was good, however.

55 euro for each is too much for this kind of fish. In Malta i think that you can eat better fish and and cheaper
