Great Value and Great Food

I love this restaurant as they serve very good and fresh fish, I suggest a good lunch or a very nice dinner in the city of Marsaxlokk to try this restaurant. Fish is exquisite and pasta is wonderful.

My partner and I, we live in Malta since September 2015. In a sunny Sunday morning we decided to have a trip to Marsaxlokk and, having a walk down the seafront, we discovered this restaurant. It was a real excellent experience: fresh fish fried, the best I've ever had. For 10 euros!!!!! We'll be back soon!

I had booked previously however no table was available on the day. Service was poor and I spent more time waiting nervously then eating and relaxing. Food was below... More

we expected medium food for the low price of our fixed dinner. We received excellent food that did not stint on seafood portions and was well presented. The staff were very professional and attentive yet were extremely warm when we initiated contact. We ate outside in front of the lovely fishing boats but thought that the interior was quite nice....
