Very friendly staff, business looks very family driven. Some investments into the interior could help for an better first impression. Anyhow, food was really good. As starters we had the Soup of the day (Vegetable) and Mushroom. As main we ate the “Mixed Fish Plate”. Fish looks and tastes fresh - nothing seemed to be frozen -and the prize was... More

Great food, sensibly priced. not long between courses. Sat near the front but not deliberately displayed as customers. You have time to appreciate your food and they want to know if you enjoyed your meal at the end not after your third mouthful.

I was staying just around the corner form this restaurant nad thought we would give it a try. The tuna steaks we had were the tastiest I've ever had, absolutely beautiful. Seafood seemed to be the specialty here but they also had traditional Maltese food on the menu but some of this had to be prebooked. We met some regular... More

It was a lovely surprise, set jJust in front of the Bagiggia dock, we went inside discovering dishes with a very good taste served by a really kind and helpful staff. Don’t expect a posh and fancy restaurant, but it is its simplicity to make it special! I had good fresh fish, with an honest white wine at a reasonable... More

The owner served us and chatted away to us, very friendly! We received a wonderful complimentary... More

We’ve been looking for a place to eat fresh fish. And I’m happy that we found Il-Gzejjer Bar & Restaurant. The atmosphere was simple and cozy. For the first minutes we stayed in front the door with some doubts, but the owner called inside, presented all fresh fish for the evening, even showed some fish types on the board. I... More

I visited this restaurant together with my mom and my cousin during our stay in Malta. We found this place on tripadvisor and I must say we don't regret it! Fresh fish was beautifully cooked! To make our lives easier the host and the waitress took the bones out of the fish right in front of us, while having a... More
