We went to Marsaxlokk to see the Sunday fish market. Unfortunately, we missed it, but the meal in this restaurant was an excellent compensation: we could experience how the freshly caught seafood tasted. Well, it was excellent: we got a mixed seafood plate for two, packed with deliciously prepared octopuses, calamaris, king prawns and mussels. The price was very reasonable,... More

I just liked the little town of Marsaxlokk very much. The 3 sisters running this restaurant was just fine for a quick lunch. Fresh seafood, fresh food, very pleasant.

During recent visit to Marsaxlokk had lunch at this restaurant on the seafront. It was an excellent choice. We had the special menu priced at €19 for 2 x starters and main of potatoes, salad / vegetables, and 3 x types of fish plus mussels. All in all a very pleasant lunch, both the food and the level of service... More

Whether you review this under this name or 3 sisters the result is the same. We visited on a reasonably quite day - avoiding the market - and chose here as it seemed the most popular. What we did not realise was that most of the diners were local or so it seemed as they got preferential service and the... More

Stumbled onto this restaurant by mistake, as there are so many restaurants in this area that choosing one is difficult, especially since most of them are very good. Ta Frenc il-Koy is a very good restaurant with very good value for money. Do not get confused by the name as it is also known as 3 sisters. They are the... More

We visited this restaurant at Marsaxlokk on a Sunday afternoon. The host was very welcome (booking is recommended). As a starter I took a fish soup (aljotta) which was full of pieces of fish like a home made soup. The swordfish was my main course, and I am attaching a photo of the actual dish. The dishes were very good... More
