We arrived not long after the restaurant had opened & sat outside. It is lovely to sit by the sea. However the whole outside area was very dirty, with lots of cigarette butts, food etc. on the ground.The staff were friendly, but a few times we had to call them to get attention as they were all talking together.

During a recent long break to Malta I had occasion to visit Marsaxlokk several times and from the choice of the many restaurants along the seafront, I always seem to end up at the Three Sisters as Ta Frenc is known locally. I visited alone and with friends and was always greeted warmly. The choice of fish and seafood was... More

Ta 3 sisters - What a gem of a restaurant on the waterfront of Marsasokk. From the moment we sat down to when we left, we were treated like royalty. The staff and Ta 3 sisters themselves were attentive and fun. The local fresh sea food did not disappoint and this must rate as one of the best restaurants on... More

Returning to Marsaxlokk we decided to eat at Ta' Frenc il Koy because we had so enjoyed it on our last visit. We ended up eating there three times!! The first time we had salads which were large, fresh and imaginative. My mixed seafood salad was a joy, full of flavour. My all-time favourite, however, is the Frito Misto which... More

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
