Very small English pub with typical menu. Not the nicest in town but popular with expats although there did not appear to be draught beer as everyone was drinking from cans. Although I would'nt rush back it has to be said that the food was good but I suspect the vegetables were frozen not fresh.

We visited Coxswain's on our first visit to Malta in September 2014 and we were pleasantly surprised with Lynsey and Buffy who were very friendly and served delicious food and drink. The restaurant is visited by many ex pats and Maltese residents. We had many conversations and laughs with them all. The English Breakfast is wonderful just like home. Many... More

Went for a late lunch, my wife had beer in a dirty glass, when she took it back to the bar, the attitude to her complaint was poor, though eventually a new glass with new beer was served, food good in both quality and quantity, moral of the story please the customer and don't argue when they have a genuine...

Stumbled across this restaurant walking along the harbor. My mum and I had the fresh swordfish and it was beautifully cooked. My daughters ( who are 24 and 25) were also pleased with the 1 euro ice cream and received three scoops of their choice. I am going back to Malta in October and will visit here again. The owners...
