Good food, great views

The views at Fresco make it all worth it. We also had an excellent waiter who was the perfect balance of attentive, without being overbearing. The risotto was excellent as was the fish. The grilled calamari was ok.

It was our first night in Sliema & went to Fresco's due to the great reviews on trip advisor. It certainly didn't disappoint, the waiters were very friendly & efficient. We started with two fruity cocktails, I think they were called Betmiga?? The waiter suggested we try these. They were really good. The food was tasty, I had a chicken... More

Although from the outside you would expect a fast food restaurant, what we actually got was wonderful service and absolutely great food in surroundings with a great view. If you want to get a really good table then I would recommend booking.

I visited this establishment with my wife and had a very nice dinner. We ordered Snapper and Calamari, which was very nice. Fresh, expertly cooked, and the tomatoes tasted divine. The place has a very nice atmosphere and a nice view of the water. Charlie, who seemed to be in charge, was very attentive, and more to the point, appeared... More

I visit this restaurant often together with my family. Food and service is consistently good. Good value for money and nice ambience especially if you want to eat outside and enjoy the sun.

Great food, lovely location and very attentive staff. We went here several times during our stay in Malta. Charles recognized us on our last visit and promptly gave us the best table in the restaurant even though people were queuing to be seated. Thank you Charles, you made our last night in Malta a perfect one. Torill & Håvar

First of all I’ve now been to this restaurant at least a dozen times in the past few years – always generally had a good meal, we previously liked the service, relaxed environment but unfortunately this all changed today. Knowing from previous experience of booking a table during their busy time for Easter and Mothers Day we opted for an... More

WE ARE ABSOLUTELY MORTIFIED! We are aware of the reviewer's mishap which is TOTALLY embarrassing and inexcusable. Mother's Day Lunch this year was the busiest day we have ever had in six years of operation. We were expecting it and were well prepared and served a couple of hundred meals over a five to six hour period efficiently and without... More

The place looked good with great views the order was taken fairly promptly as the restaurant was not busy and then we waited and waited, eventually we decided that if it didn't arrive within the next five mins we would leave. The food did arrive and wasn't anything special. I had the rabbit which was supposed to be a special... More

Customers must realise that Fresco's is not a 'fast-food' restaurant and all orders are prepared on order. Items like Rabbit Stew and Lasagna are obviously prepared in the morning and re-heated SLOWLY in a conventional oven to the correct temperature. From experience we find that some customers don't realise this and seem to lose track of time and expect their... More
