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

Always enjoy Zimos - lovely welcoming atmosphere and the best pasta at very reasonable prices. For a treat the steak with mushroom sauce is fantastic.

A cosy restaurant! weather permitting you can stay on the outside otherwise inside not too much space but if you find a place the atmosphere is very welcoming. The food especially seafood is either fresh or not available. Wine list not vast but adequate. Service is always up to your expectations as Simon the host will always see to it... More

We wanted a change and decided to dine at Ximo last night. I had Lampuki, my partner chose roast chicken and our friends decided on Pasta. The staff were all extremely friendly including the chef/owner. The quality of the food and service was superb - the best we have found in Malta so far.

Went here tonight, fish dishes were excellent in quality and quantity, but our evening was spoiled by the barmaid wiping her runny nose on her arm and hanker chief , not once did we see her washing her hands after this, poor show on front if your customers, the waitress service was only just average. We were going to have... More

We have been going to Ximo's (pron Shee-moes) for several years now. Consistently good fish - I won't recommend anything else on the menu because we only go there for the fish dishes including seafood. I recommend the seabass (filetted or whole, however you prefer it), the octopus, and the seafood platter. The fish is always cooked beautifully and meals... More

....wonderful people and a beautiful place, half way along the harbour on the way to the church, is the most gorgeous little restaurant you could ever hope to find. Every dish is cooked to perfection and served as if you are part of the family. From steak to octopus to clams to mussels all melting in the mouth AND a... More
