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

My wife and have been fortunate in being invited by Vincent A to dine at this restaurant. I can only echo Vince's comments. Everything you want a restaurant to be was there : great food, friendly & knowledgable staff and reasonable prices.

An experience NOT to miss in the beautiful Marsascala! Great and copious food. Better reserve before if you want to eat there the weekends. The many tables and the toght and close environment will make you enjoy the Maltese atmosphere.

We like to go there as it offers good value for money. It is a family run restaurant that serves good food in a relaxed environment. So far every time we went there we ended up satisfied. Keep it up.

I went to Grabiel for Lunch on Saint Paul's feast day and decided to eat outside on the Terrace because the weather was warm. The service was very good but the food was underwhelming. Grabiel has a reputation as a fine restaurant but the lunch menu on the terrace is not fine dining. We both ordered the fish and chips... More

Just a pitty! Service was all right. White wine had a good temperature. Me husband will never go there again. In my opinion he should have complained. Unfortunatelly he decided... More

We decided to change from our usual place to eat and what a disappointment! The food wasn't great at all! I had carbonara and it tasted like raw eggs!!! And my other half had a mixed grill which was more like a swimming pool of grease! The staff were pleasant though so cant fault them, maybe we were just unfortunate... More
