We have given the Seashell three chances when we have craved fish and chips but never again. Service to be fair was excellent, chips were great and the batter just lovely,and prices very good, but oh the fish was just awful. Slimey and mushy! We've had fish and chips elsewhere so know it could be so much better. Sorry to... More

If you're craving for fish and chips in Bugibba or Qwara then visit Seashells. Its very good value for what you pay, much cheaper then the UK and the bugers are good value too. Im very fussy about what I eat, especially where burgers are concerned. I had an egg and cheese burger and it was huge! This was accompanied... More

I mean where the heck would you get away with paying less than six euro for a sizable portion of Fish and... More

I arrived at the bar at 6pm on the 17th November and decided to have the special, Haddock and chips and mushy peas, as well as a coffee, The coffee arrived first, hot and tasteless so I thought, never mind, and I eagerly awaited my meal, out comes this lovely looking fish with 13 cooked frozen chips and an ample...

Tucked away at the higher end of Tourist St we enjoyed the home made chips and fish cakes. Plenty of choice and keen prices although the cafe is on the small side but with a couple of tables outside..weather permitting. The only thing that spoilt it for us were the flies. Think they need to invest in a fly zapper.

This is the "plaice" to go if you like fish and chips.The Fish is cooked in the lightest batter ever and the chips are just how they should be.The swordfish is also very nice too Very welcoming staff,good service good food what more do you want,it is only a small chippy but big portions too please you.

The Fish was still raw, the butter was totally soggy and tasted rancid and the chips were only partly edible item of the whole meal. Will never eat there again.
