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

When we visited this restaurant it was fully booked, however they managed to pull a table together for us. The service was very friendly and efficient and although it started to get very busy, they kept it up the whole time we were there. The food was delicious and reasonably priced and the portions were perfect. I would highly recommend... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time. Enjoyed the spaghetti with mixed seafood variety. A homely atmosphere in the heart of Marsascala. A service with a smile. Will definitely visit the place again in the near future.

We visited the other day without any previous knowledge of the place, we were drawn in by their specialities board which featured Seabass, Clams, Mussels and Octopus. Being big seafood fans we weren't dissappointed, the only difficulty we had was in what to choose from the menu. We ordered the clams in garlic and spaghetti with prawns. It was all... More

Fantastic food, served by exceptionally friendly staff. Simon the fabulous chef, his highly efficient sister Sandra overseeing the customers and beautifully assisted by junior waitresses Odette and Desiree. This is a "must come to" restaurant when visiting Malta.

We went to this place for Sunday lunch and were seated outside. The main thing that bothered us about this restaurant is the fact that the tables are extremely close to each other to the point that you can hear the conversations on either side of your table very clearly. This obviously makes you aware of the fact that anything... More

I a few words, this is a fab restaurant. Went for brunch. I HAD to have fresh fish as in the fishing towns/village areas for the day. Took a seat outside, soon to greeted and told fresh seabass available - so opted for that. My friend had the Maltese omelette, also a great choice. Food and service were great -... More
