Price is good

Grabiel is recommended for those who want to spend a little over Eur 20 while still eating a delicious half chicken. Two people were served by that price (and for the record, we had another plate besides the half-chicken, only I don't remember what!). At the end, our stomachs were full synonymous... read more

Putting aside pretty high prices - we came to have some ice coffee and dessert outside, it was a nice sunny day. First of all the tables and chairs were really dirty, we wanted to order something to eat but the waiter said kitchen is closed. Fair enough we thought, it's still early; but 5 min later the couple next... More

I would imagine that this Restaurant is the place for seafood straight off the boats. However, in my opinion, not all fish ordered felt that fresh. I joined five friends out to lunch after having had some relaxing time at Ta' Qali MFA Indoor Heated Swimming Pool. I was the last to get to the restaurant and by that time... More

Firstly a very comfortable feeling of spaciousness - a really large restaurant, inside and out. And such a varied menu, whether you are after just a quick bite or a formal three course meal, the quality of food is excellent. When we went - a cold day in March, we sat inside and just wanted a quick lunch. I had... More

Steak cooked very well, large portion size along with complimentary garlic bread and sweet. Menu choice is limited but good quality.

We visited Grabiel twice during our recent visit to Marsaskala. I would certainly recommend it for families. Very lively ambience, good food, quick service and great value for money.

The food was delicious, we have order two plates of chicken breast with mushroom sauce for me and my father while my mother had Lamb chops which where really good aswell since I have had a small bite. The time taken to be served was pretty fast for all three dishes even though the restaurant was busy. The only complaint... More
