This restaurant is on the quayside and is run by some fishermen's wives - they play on that with some entertaining menus and special offers "caught by my husband". The food is simple but excellent. It is fantastic value too.

If you like seafood and shellfish, this is it! No need to look any further. We go there as often as we can. Just ask for shellfish platter, it is not on the menu, but they are flexible. Food is fresh and it is crucial for seafood restaurant. My friends from abroad always want to go there dinner every time... More

Run by three sisters whose husbands, so we're told, go fishing for the fayre they serve. The fresh fish was lovely. A combination of superb weather and a quayside sea view made for a lovely lunch. The atmosphere in the place was lively and you get great food. You can sit and watch the world go by. Marsaxlokk is worth... More

If you want to sit in nice luxury do not go here but if you enjoy perfectly cooked seafood this is the place to go. Known locally as the 3 Sisters, our meal was freshly cooked and was delicious. Very reasonably priced and excellent value for money.

Service was a bit slow on our visit but it was a busy lunchtime, we had the platter for two to share which was a trio of fish and mussels with a... More
