Nice little place, friendly knowledgable staff and decent price. The only thing that put me off was the lucky lucky men trying to sell items while we were waiting for food. It only happened once though so not a big problem. Food was good and quick service.

A good informal place for a dinner in marsaxlokk harbour. We wanted to try typical Maltese stewed rabbit before leaving and this restaurant fully satisfied us on a Monday, when most of the other restaurants were closed or only served fish. Service was good, although i must admit the room was not crowded at all. Everything for a really good... More

We had the set lunch menu yesterday having seen plenty of locals eating there. Had an outside table on the pavement which was fine. Service was poor - four times we asked for glasses for our mineral water. Fortunately one young waitress new her job and she looked after us. We were brought complimentary bruschetta which were good. Starters were... More

Had to queue so assumed it would be good - couldn't be further from the truth. Service was chaotic staff appeared clueless. Food took nearly two (yes two!) hours to arrive. All we had ordered was dishes of the day. I ordered the fish, my wife ordered the seafood platter. When it finally arrived (we were on the verge of... More

Visited Marsaxlokk on a busy sunny day in low season when market stalls were on the quayside. Walked up and down the many places serving food at the water's edge but chose Carrubia because of good price set menu - 2 course plus glass of wine €7.50. Managed to get a table on the quayside in the sun. My friend... More

Short review as I am typing this on my phone. Beautiful view of the water from inside, or you can sit outside. Appears to be family run. Food ranged from very good to excellent. We ate way too much.

Terrible food! Terrible service! Terrible host! First of all we got our main courses after an hour! I had to change my spaghetti with clums with another one because I could not taste more such food! The clums were old and smelly, the amount of pepper was so high that I thought they were trying to hide the flavours. The... More

Food is nothing out of the ordinary but for its price it's quite good. Got a great table. Saw about 5 waiters around but they had no structure. Service was just terrible and it's a pity as they were all friendly. Will not rush back there.

Great value for money even though it took 2 hrs to get a table and have food serves. Portions are huge and tastes like home cooking
