Over all very good food and service,my wife had sea bass and enjoyed it she asked for it to be filleted, this was no problem, my chicken with olives, cappers, and tomato sauce was also enjoyable, and not expensive.

Have eaten here quite a few times and never disappointed. The restaurant is a bit on the small side but the food is good and the chief does all the cooking himself. Sitting outside overlooking the bay is great.

Lovely place with very friendly staff. We were sitting outside, great for people watching. The fresh fish & mussels were excellent. Great value for money, definitely a place to go back to.

Mamma Mia Simon never lets you down! Been here frequently the service and food have always been to my expectations but having the host really giving you personal attention is really a unique exception! nowadays this is a rare occasion but I for one would do my best to experience it again!

Back from Sweden our Landlord invites us for a lunch at Ximo. Tiny place with great food and good service. We had fresh grilled fish and steaks, together with the side dishes a filling meal without any complains. Finally a piece of chocolate gateau and a coffee, well prepared for a nap

What Simon prepares in the probably smallest kitchen in Malta is a dream. Very much recommended for fresh fish, spaghetti rizzi, king prawns and other seafood. Or even for bruschetta and various homemade dishes.

Like most restaurants in this town it is quite small and fairly ordinary to look at but don't be fooled. We had the best steaks in years in Ximo. They were big, juicy succulent and tender. Cooked to perfection with good service and reasonably priced. Lovely
