Furthermore it is of great value, prices include not only what you order but a massive array of sides including fresh salad (lettuce, rucola, tomatoes...), baked cauliflower, grilled zucchini, baked or fried potatoes... However do not expect anything in terms of ambiance. The restaurant decor is... More

I would not recommend it for any special occasion, but it's a good dining out option. There is a lot of space, both in and outside, view is nice at daylight.

I am a frequent Grabiel customer because of the fresh fish and great dine out. Friendly atmosphere although always busy and service second to none. I always enjoy myself as quality and quantity is in every dish they serve.....highly recommended.

I visited this restaurant with my family. We had heard that the sea food was to die for & we were not disappointed. The portion sizes, being Maltese are very generous.

We first visited for breakfast and ordered a ‘Full English’ it arrived very quickly... More

This was mine and my boyfriends first visit to the island of malta and sadly we walked passed this restaurant everyday but finally decided to give it a try and when doing so we both wondered why we hadn't eaten there before, 100% on everything! Would Deffo come back to malta to visit here
