I'm afraid I agree with the others.. service very slow.. but food was tasty

The main waitress was a hard working and friendly lady who deserved her tip. I felt exasperated for her as the two young lads and second lady working with her were clueless! We had brushetta as a gratuity when we sat down. Water arrived promptly. I had the vegetarian pizza and my husband had... read more

Having eaten in quite a few of Marsaxlokk's restaurants over the past week this one has stood out as being the worst, primarily the service was terrible, they are very keen to take your order but after that it all falls down, long wait for drinks, the wine served was not as described on the menu, it took 45 minutes...

Being from Marsaxlokk myself, I know which places will give me an amazing dinner, and which places are a definite no-go. Carrubia falls into the latter category, and I wouldn't eat here if it was the last place on the planet to have food. The service is terrible, the food is disgusting, and although cheap, it's just not good enough... More

Went there for dinner (whch is always a relaxed time in Marsaxlook) and although the service was friendly the pizza was far from great. Too sweet, very thick dough.. The wine was nice, and the price not bad, and probably the other dishes are better but the pizza is definetly a disapointment (not that we had great pizza in Malta,... More

1 minute to have a chips for our son (very good ) 15 minutes for the menus to come, 30 minutes for the beer to come and 45 minutes for the food. Food was not that bad. You'll never see me again

Good meal with vine and a starter for just 7,5€. Everything was good. Nice location next to the sea, fresh fish dishes. Friendly stuff.

Use to look forward to go to Carrubia whenever we visit Marsaxlokk, not so much as of now. Staff looked all busy hustling around without looking at the actual tables waiting. Food arrived and drinks were no where to be seen. Asked more than 4 times and eventually the manager passed by and had to stop him to get his... More

We planned to have diner here. Ordered wine and asked for the menu. But the staff were to busy with other things (smoking and talking on the phone) The wine was terrible and we were not charmed about the service so we paid and left.

Arrived, got seated fairly quickly. Placed order fairly quickly. So far, so good. Food arrived...it was ok. I had grilled sea bream, which was overcooked. I would expect any restaurant in Marsaxlokk to be able to get fish right, given the abundance of fresh fish available. So that was pretty unforgivable in my eyes. My wife's pizza was good, however.... More

I ate at this restaurant some days ago. Many people ate in that moment so I waited 30 min to sit down. After other 20 minutes I ordered a bruschetta, a Maltese salad, crabs with potatoes and salad and another plate. After 40 minutes I received a fork. After other 10 min a knife and after other 30 minutes I... More
