I frequent this restaurant quite often. The food is always good and prices are very reasonable. Can improve on the service as when it gets busy, especially on the weekend, you have to wait for your food for quite some time. Definitely worth a visit.

Have been to Carrubia many times and always enjoy eating there. It's very much a locals establishment so can get a little busy and vocal, but that's part of its charm. Always found the food good and the fish is always very good. The rabbit stew in my wife's opinion, is the best she's tried in Malta so far. The... More

Our guidebook recommended this place. We were disappointed. The view is nice but the service very slow, in our case due to the presence of a tour group sitting inside which we had not spotted... The food was not bad and the price fine, but overall we regretted going there.

I used to come here frequently with my father and we were always served well and the food was always excellent. But the last time I came here the service was very slow. We waited for our food for around 35 minutes (omelette and pasta), plus there was only one waitress who took orders. The other waiters were all foreign... More

We were waiting for the bottle of water for 15 minutes, ordered Lampuki (later turned out it was frozen, super dry and not edible), when the food arrived had to wait for cutlery for another 2-3 minutes. Waiters are a mess, noone knows what they're doing. Clearly lacking good management. Avoid at all costs. Avoid at all costs.

The service was terrible and the food was just ok. We waited for our server for an hour then waited for our food for another hour. The whole time overlooking a filthy dirty harbor. Not a good experience at all.

Of a long string of outdoor restaurants on the Marsaxlokk strand, we thought Carrubia looked the most interesting, had the most diners - always a good sign - and a good prix fixe menu featuring a local catch. We took seats in the first row to the sea and enjoyed the location tremendously. The restaurant itself was not equal to... More

We ate here twice as the food was good and excellent value. However do not expect attentive service, when we are there it was busy and there were plenty of staff, but they seemed to go out of their way to ignore you. Preferring to talk to each other. It's a shame as this good be a really great venue... More
