I don't think...but I'm sure that, Grabiel is the best or one of the best in Malta....for the quality of food, the quantity and the price, not expensive. Also, you have a choice, either eat out or inside for a good air condition. One thing that I suggest: The manager that helps there too, although he is friendly, he must... More

By far the best fresh fish restaurant even though other food is available. Best home made creme caramel ever tasted!

I use this restaurant every time I visit Malta which is at least twice a year. I have never been disappointed by the food or the welcome . Although others mention the manager I can assure you he is a kind caring man & nothing is too much too ask for his customers. I recommend trying breakfast, lunch & dinner... More

I have to agree with the other reviews on here. The food was very fresh: a great assortment of fish appetisers followed by snapper chosen from the kitchen and finished with probably the best home made tiramisu I've eaten. I can't leave this review without mentioning the notorious half owner, Carmelo, who joined us at the table with a cigarette... More

Finally - a restaurant who serves real minced beef in a bolognese sauce! When I'm not into feasting on meat, then pasta bolognese is normally my next choice. At other restaurants, the minced beef in a bolognese sauce is scarce and too minced - "as if" minced left-overs and what to hide what's it by extra-mincing it. They almost 'dust'... More

This busy restaurant is great. Even though we hadn't booked we were seated quickly. Drinks arrived and the waiter came to take our order. I enquired about the fresh fish and he said "come and see!". We were taken through the busy kitchen (no secrets there) and out to a cold store. There were boxes of glistening fish, massive oysters... More

We were a group of 5 and decided to give this restaurant a try as it was our first evening of our holiday. The menu had something for everyone. We chose fish dishes and meat dishes and the portions were large. We didn't have room for desserts! This isn't fine dining, but if you like large portions and friendly service,... More

I use this restaurant often when I'm in Malta but have never remembered to review it. I went with my parents & 3 Maltese friends. The menu has a wide & varied selection, from pizza's, burgers to the best steaks available, service is excellent, fast & friendly, the portions are big! Sweets offered all looked lovely, would have loved to... More

I keep on going to this restaurant for quite a few years because I love the food there each time, whatever the Choice. Prices are very reasonable.

I note that quite a few of the disgruntled visitors cite the attitude of the manager! Some people are too sensitive or lack a sense of humour. OK, he is quite a formidible presence --but how often do you get invited into the cold-room to inspect the day's catch ? Enjoyed the meal, and the unintentional cabaret
