We went there for the famous pasta dishes and we were NOT disappointed! Very tasty food. We waited a little long for the food even though we were the only guests, but the food was worth the wait.

"Old favourite" which recently changed hands but is still recommendable. Excellent meal and efficient service. Great place to unwind while satisfying your taste buds.

We enjoyed eating the tasty fish - good presentation, splendid view and warm reception. Marsalforn was quiet during the week- no summer crowds a lovely, peaceful autumn day.

Otters is in a lovely location overlooking Marsalforn bay. When we went it was #8 in TripAdvisor but we thought we would give it a try. The food was generally OK, certainly the starters of squid and, in particular, the smoked duck with chocolate were good; I had swordfish, which was very generous portion and nicely cooked but my partner's...

The menus offered by restaurants in Marsalforn tend to be a bit similar, so we were tempted by Otters as, while the main ingredients were essentially the same, they tried to be a bit more imagintaive in the way they served them. Prices were no more expensive than other restaurants we ate in and the staff were helpful and friendly.... More

We went there for dinner. Waitress was very keen on taking orders quickly but then we had to wait over an hour for our food to be delivered.

Probably you were agitated because you came for dinner late with a young hungry kid and pretended to be served... More

It is very hard to find a fault with this restaurant. The food is delicious, the portions are large, staff is friendly, the location is excellent. Had an impeccable Sunday lunch with my family.
