Best lunch with seafood I ever had

My sister and me visited this restaurant for eating lunch because of an recommendation. The view, service and food was amazing! Spaghetti with rabbit and linguine with calamari were excellent! I'm already planning another visit with another group for dinner.

Our very relaxed mid-day meal (hardly a "lunch") was great. Fresh fish, grilled vegetables and an excellent white wine. The owner/manager was "everywhere" making sure that all was well at every table. We felt very much at home with a delicious meal and solicitous service.

An extensive menu with daily specials, including fresh fish. Good food and very good service by polite, friendly staff. Pleasant atmosphere. Good deal in winter with 25% off total bill from Monday to Friday lunch.

The food here was delightful and you could tell the ingredients were fresh. Overall the service was great, although when I went to pay the bill my money was taken away and I had a long wait for my change, which was subsequently brought by a different member of staff.

Located on the promenade in Sliema. Frescos is a great place to rest sore feet and fill that hungry spot. Food was great - service good and prices reasonable..
