Great cappuccino

Went there whilst waiting for our taxi to the airport. The coffee is great and the prawn salad is worth waiting for. Service is slightly slow but Malta time is slower than the UK anyway. Air conditioned which is good when waiting to go to the airport to fly home and it's 41 degrees! Cisks are cold... read more

This Pub is run by a lovely British lady all by herself. Because she's cooking the food as well you may have to wait a little bit for your food but trust me, it's worth it! I ate a Black Angus Burger and my Mum had Ribs. The portions were very big and you could tell that everything was fresh.... More

A group of 3 we all had a great lunch today. Great burgers, but I had a fantastic tasty prawn salad that also had 3 king prawns... Thank you Lindsey.

I've been to coxswain many times and never disappointed the food is cooked and presented beautifully. A must say Jake makes a wonderful cappuccino. Can't the beat the price for the quality and quantity. The owner makes you feel so welcome. Fantastic keep the good work up.

We had fish and chips with mushy peas, which was perfectly fine. Tasty even. It was just a bit expensive for what it was. The portion sizes were generous enough, but then again, you could get the same amount for about two thirds, if not half the price at your average chippy in the UK. We felt like we were... More

We ate here a few times before the season and rated it highly. Run by a lovely English woman we thought the food - essentially snacks, was of good quality and superb value, better than most. And actually we still do think that! Unfortunately she is just too nice and a man preferably older is needed to reign in the... More

Fantastic service, lots of choice from the menu. We went for a traditional English Sunday lunch & that's just what we got, choice of beef, lamb or pork. Lot's of fresh vegetable, good yorkshire pud & lots of gravy

They have an extensive menu with a lot of breakfast options light snacks for lunch - sandwiches, toasties, baguettes etc, as well as larger meals - omelet & chips etc. All served by... More

Located right on the main street of Marsascala overlooking the delightful harbour. Staff were very hospitable and professional. Breakfast was both delicious and substantial!
