Great place to eat in harbour area Mgarr

After walking along the harbour front we 'stumbled' across the restaurant L-Ankra and what a lucky find. It was about the only restaurant open every evening, (we went out of season).

My husband chose the pork fillet which was served on a bed of sweet potatoes and leeks. This was cooked to perfection, i must say, it was so tender... More

I visited for lunch on Sunday, and although restaurant was quite busy the service was excellent. Both the starter and main course were of very high quality especially the beef fillet main course, which was cooked perfectly to my liking. Worth a visit

Didn't think it would be THAT good. Super satisfied with the food (the dessert is to die for!). Excellent service. Will definitely visit again.
