Disappointing again - a terrible mess!

So I go to a fish restaurant and they do not serve steak fish. I normally have Dott or Denci or Cerna fish... read more

We went for Sunday lunch at this restaurant and the first impact with the restaurant was seeing a very slim customer's chair breaking down beneath him. Then came another customer who was complaining that a portion of fish meant for two was barely enough for one....we were not encouraged and therefore we asked whether we would have the same size...

Had pasta filled with crab and shrimps followed by octopus and squid salad. Had coupon from Deal so meal was half price. Abundant food but could be improved in quality.

Been here with a couple of friends for a quick dinner. I must say that it's one of the worst meals I had in the last few years... We all had starters to share and pasta as main. One of the pasta dishes was served cold and we had to ask them to warm it up. My spaghetti marinara was... More

The cost of seafood in Marsaxlokks is extremely reasonable and Pisces' prices are also a nice surprise. The food was good, the service was pleasant and the location, with tables right next to a picturesque harbour, very relaxing. Good alternative to spending the evening in Sliema or Valletta.

Pisces is one of the many restaurants on the Marsaxlokk waterfront. It offers great freshly caught fish dishes on special offers throughout summer. Great service and good value.

To start of, the service was very nice. The waitresses were polite, informed and helpful. The menu offered some interesting choices including salmon with lobser meat wrapped in a nice pastry, pork cheeks amongst other choices. We opted for fried cheeslets and pasta with chicken as starters which were both very good and the pasta was cooked to perfection. For... More

Fish platter that consists of calamari, octopus, muscles and King prawns was already cooked and just was wormed. Food didn't taste fresh and King prawns didn't taste like so and for the money that I payed I was expecting that everything was cooked by order and fresh.. Very disappointed!!! Do not recommend!!
