There must have been 100+ choice of meals and snacks between them with a variety of nationalities all at very reasonable costs. We both opted for pasta. The hubby having bolognaise and me a seafood pasta. The portions were... More

Just been to Il-Fanal restaurant. I am not a regular to Marsascala but since we were in the mood for pizza we thought that this place, being the largest in town and full, they should serve good pizza. I was so disappointed.

Do not expect anything special when you visit Il Fanal restaurant, but I must say that it is quite good for a quick lunch. Service acceptable, food acceptable aswell, and price is fair. A great deal for a non-expensive meal.

we had a take away curry and it had no taste at all, it was really just like eating boiled rice. maybe a bit of curry powder would have gave it some taste.
