This was our second visit to Carrubia at Marsaxlokk. We went the second time because although the place is crammed and noisy the food was good. The second visit was a different story. We arrived at 13.30, the time of our booking. At quarter to two we were seated. Menus given and by two orders collected. Soon after garlic bread... More

Even though the portions were huge and the waiters were patient and friendly, the food quality wasn't even close to great. We were given a table on the second floor and there weren't too many people dining, but it was SO noisy that I couldn't hear the person infront of me speaking. I don't suggest this restaurant to anyone who... More

I gave a glowing review on 15 Feb 2012, but how everything has changed since then. I waited 25 mins for a cold main course which arrived only after I spoke to a waitress and then the manager. There were only six other diners apart from myself at lunchtime. The prawn parcels contained only 6 prawns in total although there... More

Got there with a tour guide who recommended this place as a great place to eat. I had to catch the waiter physically to get the menus, and the service continued the same all the way. The food was terrible and took forever to show up, the waiter recommended an starter that was a huge portion size, and when we... More
