Was there twice. Unfortunately never tried a main course because the tapas were so great. Best and friendliest service. Best location on the sea. Can't say enough good things about it. Yet not super expensive.

We tried the ocean supreme which consists of black mussels,oysters, fresh prawns etc. Its a divine platter when consumed looking at the wonderful view from the terrace. Service was perfect and ambience is very enjoyable.

Their Seafood platter is very nicely presented and it the tastes are supreme. We had a bottle of prosecco to accompany this dish which turned out to be a very good choice. We recommend this dish as it's a unique experience especially in this ambience.

If it were not for the view, there wouldn’t be anything positive to say about this restaurant. It leaves alot to be desired. The quality of ingredients is inferior and nothing remotely near the description in the menu. One simple example: honey & balsamic infused...gozitan cheeslet with pear chutney is nothing more than an over the counter cheeselet dressed with a balsamic glaze over a bed of prepacked salad. Desserts are microwave heated and pathetic. Great shame for a restaurant that enjoys such a natural advantage.More

My husband and I dined at Otters for my pre-30th birthday dinner, the staff was very friendly and attentive! Initially there appeared to be a mix up with our reservation but it was resolved quickly and without much effort on our end. We ordered 1x...Hungry COWboy burger & 1x Al Pollo e Pesto - both of which we had ordered before and we were happy to find that on both occasions preparation was 👌One of best parts was that we were able to go 50/50 on our respective meals and both feel satisfied since the portions were generous! Second best was having one of the staff members offer to take pictures of us 😊 Thank you Otters staff!More

Otters serve some of the best steaks around. A Tomahawk between two was the best choice we made in these four days we stayed in Marsalforn. Not forgetting the beautiful sea views. Perfect.

This Lounge and Bistro is situated in one of the best locations in Marsalfarn. You can look all around the port and bay while sipping cocktail all day. We spent a whole week there, cocktails, breakfast, lunches and dinner...could not ask for more. The sea...around the area is always blue and clear. Miss it alreadyMore
