We came to eat with family visiting from abroad and we were let down with the overall service. The bruschetta which should be a starter came with the main course and my son had already finished eating his pizza before our food came. We were mostly disappointed because it was our final dinner with our family before they left malta.... More

We visited the restaurant on a sunny Sunday afternoon and wanted to enjoy a range of locally caught seafood. Carrubia had by far the most diverse menu compared to other nearby restaurants and cafes. The staff was friendly and nice but we did have to wait approximately 5 minutes to just get the menus. Otherwise, the service was actually pretty... More

We picked this place one evening because their menu looked the best of the many eating places by the sea. However, when my prawn cocktail arrived, the prawns were frozen solid! They apologised and replaced them with another dish of prawns. To my horror the prawns stank to high heaven and on tasting one of them, they were obviously bad... More

The food is lovely here, a bit of a wait when they are very busy, but the staff are very pleasant and helpful. Tables near the waters edge. Great place to sit after visiting the local market or just to look at the beautiful fishing boats. The restaurant serves a selection of freshly caught fish every day. Only downside here;... More

Food is not very good. My duck was the worst I ever ate. It was very chewy. The others didn't complain about their food. Service is horrible. The waiters are young an inexperienced. When they aren't busy with serving people, they just sit behind this bar upstairs, in a very shabby posture, and have a chat. Prices are OK. Inside... More

If you intend to taste our local Maltese fish soup, don't miss to visit the Carrubia Restaurant at Marsaxlokk, Malta. Fresh fish and professionally prepared. Service is adequate and Michael, the owner of the restaurant, is always there to help in all that is needed. On visiting this restaurant, you will go back again and again. Be patient as this... More

Excellent food well presented, fresh and helpful waiting staff all round. Only problem do not get there too hungry as it can take as long as an hour to be served, after waiting for over 20 minutes to have your order taken.

Great food and good value.I have been going there for years. Service could be better, gone down hill since Priscilla left , but the location is perfect, so perhaps put up with it. I was in Marsaxlokk today and there wasn't a free table..... That speaks for itself. Had a great meal there last week and didnt want to eat... More
