Decent food, maybe to much....

Our company of 4 adults and 4 teenagers tried this restaurant twice during our one-week stay in Marsascala. Both time we were happy. Tried both meat- and fishdishes, pasta, pizza and more. Everything was nice, the only thing to put the finger on is that the portions were way to large! -I know... read more

Excellent!! Kids loved their seafood platter and pasta dishes they shared. My only complaint is the portion sizes were to big and with 5 of us the table was to small for the amount of food.

Best fish and chips in the south of Malta. Very lovely place although the ac was on did not feel it. Long wait time and you get the feeling as if the service staff are not taking any notice. Really wish this could be improved because the food is awesome.

We visited here on our first night in Marsascala. Fresh tune was on offer with salad. My husband couldn't see any fish he wanted on the menu so the waiter offered a plate of mixed fish. The portions were absolutely huge. I had two large tuna steaks and my husband's assorted fish was massively! We were then given a bowl... More

I am sorry to say that during our lunch, the owner not only smoked near the cashdesk which is situated near the kithen but also inside the restaurant while he was running round checking the tables. Utterly rude and won't visit again!

I have dined here over many years and have set this review up for their outside eating area, not the main restaurant. We visited twice. On the first occasion, we specifically asked if the strawberry gateau contained nuts. We were assured it did not. On the first mouthful, the gentleman with the nut allergy felt a crunch and found nuts... More
