We were disappointed as although the food was good and location was great, the owner of the restaurant was pushy and very rude towards his staff. He constantly barked at them to bring people menus even though they were swept off their feet and visibly...very busy. He also screamed abuse at them and swore profusely in Maltese when they made a very small error that patrons didn't even complain about. We felt uneasy the entire time and although the food was decent, it was nothing to write home about. Disappointed. Would not return.More

I've never felt so uneasy in a restaurant in all my life. When eating there, there were so many waiters patrolling idle around the tables i felt like putting my hands up in the air so i wont be arrested. The greeting host was very...pushing and i did not like him at all. The bread was stale, the spaghetti was a pass but still the worst al mare ive ever eaten, and the desert was just frozen imqaret warmed up. Throughout the meal i couldnt help but notice the owner as he shouted, whistled and clicked his fingers to his many immigrant servers which shows the lack of respect towards his workers. (Apart from shouting a few labour party slogans) I wouldn't have left this review but i got gastric flu from the restaurant which shows that they are definitely not hygenic, as i have 2 days misery from eating there. So I would think twice before accepting the request for a table at this place, If you walk by this place someone will approach you, iether the owner or the host. Next time i defenitly wont be nice and refuse to eat there.More

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Portions were abundant and the fish was very fresh. Good service. A very idle atmosphere.

My friends and I were walking past the restaurants looking at the Menu's. It was when we stopped to look at L'Aragosta's Menu that the owner came up and asked us if we would like a table. We accepted his request for a table as...we were shy, but that was a big MISTAKE. The first thing I noticed is that only a few of the waiters were wearing a face mask. The owner was fixing up the tent as they were still preparing for lunch. No hand sanitiser was used. A very helpful waitress came to take our order. The waiter served us a complimentary Bruschetta which was made of stale bread. We thought that it must have been a mistake and so we said nothing. When bread came along that to was stale and we opted not to say anything again as not cause any problems. The Starters were to our liking though the calamari were not as crispy as expected. Our main courses were served and thats when things went bad. My friend and I ordered a BBQ Chicken pizza which was doused in BBQ, full of liquid which wasn't pleasant at all. My other friend had pasta with seafood and said that it wasn't up to par and had no taste. The owner came along and started to talk to us but it was more so making fun of us and we thought that was a bit rude but we didn't mind it since we were soon going to leave. We gave the bill to the owner but he rejected it and told us to give it to a waiter. Before we gave the owner the bill he was just walking on the pavement. When we gave the bill to the waiter we waited for about 10 minutes but no change was given to us.More

Right on the sea front this restaurant is in a good position. It does have tables outside or under cover. There is a lunchtime menu which is basic but the portions are enormous. The food is ok but nothing to write home about. Maybe a...little more quality and a little less quantity would help. Having said that the fresh fish looked delicious and seemed to be favoured over the more standard Italian fare.More

I wish I had gone with my first choice rather than another seafood pasta the waiter recommended. It was flavourless and the portion far to big it put me off so could not finish it and I hate waste. Not once did the staff ask...if the meal was ok, in fact most staff were unfriendly and not very welcoming. I found far better restaurants in Marsalforn.More
