Great Breakfast

On those days when you need a solid breakfast, this is the place to go. Plentiful, well presented and very reasonably priced. Friendly service, nice view over the harbour. Hard to beat!

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!

The Coxwain's Cabin is certainly a 'must' when you visit Marsaskala. It has a varied menu at very reasonable prices. Lindsey, the Chef de Cuisine/Owner, ensures that every meal is beautifully presented and tastes delicious using only fresh produce. The restaurant inside has a friendly atmosphere and sitting at one of the tables outside, overlooking the Mediterranean, eating food with... More

Wow, if you want the best roast dinner in Malta then this is the place to go. I was really missing my Sunday roasts and I just couldn't be bothered to go and buy a roast, peel and cook fresh vegetables, make yorkshire puddings and the gravy so we went to Coxswain's last Sunday. It was honestly the best roast... More

I have had some sunday lunches and I have cooked some sunday lunches, but none compare to the one we had at the coxswain's cabin. The food was all fresh will be returning for sure.
