We visited due to recommendations on travel sites. Although the serving of fish was large, our swordfish was dry. There was no effort made in terms of a sauce, garnish, or accompanying vegetables. Service was curt, unfriendly, and cold. Overall it was unfortunately quite disappointing, a feeling only compounded by the steep prices.

Service was extremely slow. Took 20 minutes to get menu and then another 20 to place order. Our server disappeared and no one else would help. We saw others walk out of the restaurant. When ordering they ask you whether you want salad, potatoes as it if is part of the meal and then they bill you extra....

I went to Ir-Rizzu on a Sunday after visiting the Marsaxlokk Fish Market and tasted the fresh fish of the day while my friends ate the tuna. All the fishes were very well prepared. The chips however could be better fried as they were almost white but I think that happened because they were serving a lot of customers at... More

Try the fish soup. To die for. Also great fish cooked. Love the menu and good for celeacs and lactose intolerant persons. You'd better book ahead.

The restaurant is good although the atmosphere is not very personal. However you can see all that is happening in the kitchen and during good weather you can also stay din outside near the sea. The food is very good and abundant. the fish and sea food dishes are superb. Well worth a visit.

The first time we visited Ir-Rizzu it was a tiny restaurant and has since been greatly extended. We have holidayed in Malta seven times and since our very first experience at this lovely restaurant its an absolute must to return each visit. Every meal we have ever had has been enjoyable. This time we were a party of nine, six... More

I organized a lunch with some colleagues @ Rizzu two weeks ago. Personally, I didn't enjoyed. I asked for fried fish ("I would like to have fried fish, a big Fritto Misto") and the waitress suggested me the "Fish platter": basically, 21 euros for this plate (only) with some mussels, three prowns, two littles tartelettes and some other non-fried stuffs....

We were taken to this restaurant by a local acquaintance who said it had the best seafood in the world !! High praise which of course, was always going to be a tad subjective. He ordered for us and the platter that came out had three kinds of sauces on the spaghetti including the squid ink. Well, it (squid ink... More

We ate lunch here on a Sunday. Not the best day when the place is crowded with people here for the ubiquitous market and the Maltese out for Sunday Lunch and those parties celebrating their offspring's first communion. We had a Sea Food Platter and the quality was a bit mixed. The Octopus was absolutely perfect but the large prawns... More
