Have known this restaurant for many years. The patrons Karmenu and Mario never fail in meeting the clients' demands. Fresh fish is the speciality and the service and overall experience is a joy to remember. Prices are moderate , parking available and satisfaction guaranteed.

We have tried several restaurants in Marsascala during our stay over there. In fact, we ended up going to Grabiel the first time, because one of the other restaurants we wanted to revisit was closed on that night. Let me start with the bad, or at least - not so good: - location. Probably least romantic location, at the very... More

Sometimes it's too hot in the inside area but they have outdoors as well. If you don't mind then it's a good place for a good meal.

All food items were fresh, prepared really well and served on time. Waiters were attentive and polite. When we pointed out that a dish from our order had not arrived, they apologized, served it a few minutes later and then brought a complementary item to make up for the delay. I was positively impressed and will definitely return! Keep it... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times and it's never had much to fault. The food has always been good quality albeit a bit too much. The only problem is the loud atmosphere, usually a lot of family's so not very calm and relaxing. However, this isn't their fault and their service is still prompt and welcoming. As for... More

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
