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

Location is very nice if you get a table on the promenade. Service good. Food average. Starters good. Grilled fish good. Spaghetti below the average. Price average. Generally the impression was positive but nothing special.

This isn't the first time I have visited but the first time I have reviewed this restaurant. Ir-rizzu has been consistently great not only in food but in service, atmosphere, and hygiene. Located on the marsaxlokk waterfront, rizzu offers a wide range of home grown products including meat fish and pasta amongst many. Service was friendly and prompt although it... More

I am not a fish lover but If you are , Rizzu is the place to go. Advance booking is a must. Portions are generous.

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

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend a while back and was taking some visiting family to try Maltese caught fish in Mxlokk. Unfortunately, every dish we ordered was cooked terribly. 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
