Lovely food, drink, desserts! Very reasonably priced! 3 adults 2 kids! €61 all in two courses! Very accommodating for the kids as no kids menu as such but cooked gorgeous burgers and nuggets of them! Staff couldn't be more helpful!! Would definitely return!!!

Dear Sir/Madam, Thanks for your review regarding our dessert. I am very sorry regarding the mould on dessert, and it is our mistake. The compensation offered to you was another dessert for free but you refused it. I am sure that the waiter didn't know that it had gone, we don't try to sell such things! I don't think that... More

This restaurant served us bad food with green mould on it. We ordered coffee and desserts and the cassatella siciliana had mould on it. The waiter said that by mistake they served the dessert which was meant to be thrown away. I'm pretty sure they knew that it had gone bad and tried to sell it anyway. The restaurant did... More

My first visit to this establishment. I was looking for a nice fresh fish restaurant toenjoy a Sunday lunch. The decor is acceptable. In my opinion the backgroung music is tediuos and for an outlet with 'Italian' connotations I expected the music to be in line with this. The fresh fish selection was, even if a little restricted. Prices are... More

I have been sitting here reading through some of the reviews of this restaurant and they have made me laugh on this wet night here in Marsaxlokk. Over priced bistro! No chips! Really folks?

Gente di Mare is just a bistro sort of a place but they are charging for fish as a premium restaurant. Starters and pasta are OK but for average fish ( red snapper) they are asking 50euro/kg which is 5 times the market price. In my opinion this is a bit too much for this kind of venue. If you... More

We visited in the middle of Jan but weather still warm enough for us to sit outside. Excellent service and good value - had the basic fish and chips which was fab. On side of harbour so good views and parrot kept us occupied with its antics!

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for review regarding our restaurant and our baby parrot, hope it kept you entertained :) Our main concern is to provide the best food, and even our basic fish and chips must be one of the best as it is freshly made and homemade by our Chef. Regards, The Management More
