Great location overlooking a bay with swimming in front

Lovely view of the bay and sea. Good tandori salad EU 10.25. Nice modern tables with a pleasant cool breeze is a relief from the summer heat. Excellent cappuccino EU 1.70 which is good for the location. Average pizza. Cheerful service.

Amazing views over the bay and great food for a very reasonable price. Generous portions. Service was friendly and just the right amount of attentive. The only minor negative was that the prawns in the prawn salad were not particularly fresh. They were either frozen or a few days old. You can tell because when you pull fresh prawns from... More

My Wife and I have eaten here twice and perfect on both occasions. In particular the Prawn salad was really good. I asked for a glass of white wine and the young pleasant waitress recommended a local white, which was very nice. The service was very good; the view over the bay is fantastic. Great food, great location, great service.... More

The service here was what gave it top marks. Nice young lady served with a senior member always close to assist, and it was just a nice feel from start to finish. The view from here is great, across St Julian's, which for a holiday is all we really ask for really. The food was really good, we had no... More

Went here twice during our stay in Malta. Had previously thought it was just a "beach bar" but saw the Trip Advisor certificate so tried it and had really good experiences. Portions are big! Friendly helpful staff. Wide choice of food from pizzas and pasta to fish and meat dishes. All nicely presented. Lovely view out across the bay

As the title says it's been a couple of years since our last visit to Frescos. Popped In for lunch on Sunday afternoon. Started with the frescos focaccia to share, lovely warm pizza base covered in tomato, rocket and Parmesan. A meal in itself. This was followed by a starter size portion of pasts with a chicken pesto sauce and... More

Walked the promenade in Sliema looking for somewhere to eat and settled on Fresco's. They have lots of tables outside but we opted for a table inside in the glass fronted room overlooking the bay. The menu makes it clear that they don't serve fast food and ask for patience while they prepare the food. I chose the rabbit stew... More

So me and my GF finally had a day off and went for a shopping spree round the various shops at Sliema and since it was a very nice day to stay outside we opted for this restaurant since it indeed has a nice view. As soon as we sat down I had to use the bathroom and went down... More

I was overwhelmed by the portion size of my rabbit pasta, (Should have had starter portion). My wife however expressed delight at her calamari pasta, as indeed our friends with their seafood pasta. The small taster puddings are also good, my wife having two! Good prices and delightful view. Another good venue for our return in September.
