“Good Food, Nice Location; but…”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The Zeri’s is situated in a prime location overlooking the harbor, but unfortunately you cannot enjoy the view, especially if you sit outdoor to enjoy smoking; you will feel trapped in a corridor or under the staircase.

The above being said; the outstanding service and food quality make you forget everything and enjoy a perfect meal.

We were welcomed with a big smile, and immediately the Chef was at our table and helped us make our selection and heard our special requests.

The Chef recommended starting with the Mixed Antipasti; it was fresh, delicious and mouthwatering.

The main course included: Oven baked Sea Bass with lemon sauce; fresh and perfectly cooked. The Insalata di Calamari; was very well seasoned and tasty. The Gamberoni allo Zenzero accompanied by parsley rice; the Prawns were not King, and although the shells were removed the veins were left for us to clean; fortunately there was no sauce so that was slightly easy, and the rice was fantastic. The Gamberoni allo Zenzero accompanied by a mixed salad; although the above comments apply; there was a great sauce and salad.

The desserts were fabulous; the Lemon Sorbet was excellent, the Cassatella Siciliana was delicious however it was overly sweetened.

We generally enjoyed our dinner, but next time we will sit inside; smoking can wait between the courses.

“Great lunch with a stunning view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Fresh seafood, excellent meat, friendly service and Belgian prices. View of the yacht club is probably the best in Malta, if not just very posh. Not crowded for lunch, but you better book for a dinner in advance. Cocktail at close by Hilton before or after the dinner is a must!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Not great...but excellent Food and Service. I 've been dining last Saturday evening.
I have ordered the starter course that consisted in two different types of pasta...the linguini ricci and the prawns pasta . As a main course I had the USDA Rib eye 400gr and my wife ordered a mixed fish ,and enjoying a glass of delicious white wine .Prices are fair enough. Waiters are friendly and fast delivery...even well done for the chef and also for asking personally about the the food. A Restaurant to dine again.

“Mouthwatering !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Booked a table for 2 outside. Place was packed. Has scallop salad and linguine with fresh tuna as starters - both to die for. Main course we chose USDA Rib eye 450grms. Once again meat was cooked to perfection. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. Will be back !!

“Fab!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The best service we ever had. The best lamb we ever tasted! Go go go! We are coming back tomorrow. We have been here for a while, visiting something like 20 restaurants and this place is so good. I have been a waitress for 18 years in 3 countries so I am really really picky. :)
