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

The restaurant provides good and tasty food . The prices are very resasonable, but the service is not good at all. You have to wait a lot of time after your order so that the food is served. They give you bruschetta before your meal, free of charge.

We were a family of five and were walking around in Marsaxlokk on a friday night, we did not book and fortunately we found this place. We had soup and shrimp salad as a starter,and a fresh fish, some also had a steak which was cooked to perfection. The portions are decent and if you are hungry you will not... More

My friend and I went to Marsaxlokk and started to feel hungry, and as we walked past the restaurant they were all inviting us in. We decidet to go to Carrubia because the fish Lampuki was the cheapest, and you got a glass of wine for free :) that convinced us. It was a little bit after the rain, so... More

Having looked at the widely varying prices for the local speciality Lampuki, this restaurant seems to be offering the best deal. For €9.95, a freshly-caught and grilled Lampuki with fries and salad, plus a glass of wine. Others were up at €15 for the same. When we saw the prices of the rest of the food, as shown on the...

We went here because it seemed pretty busy. Service was slow (even by Maltese standards) and they were not particularly welcoming or friendly. The food was dry and in huge quantities making it very unappetising. They made a mistake by serving us the wrong meal and so we were waiting for it to be corrected but this meant that we... More

We were a big group, but had booked in advance. We pre-ordered the food but the service was still slow. The quality of the food was good, although I'm not sure my garlic mushrooms had any garlic. The main meals were all good. We were sitting outside on a big table, with nice views of the harbour.

We ordered three daily special and a main salad. The specials came quickly but the main salad came over 30 mins later. We tried to return it as we thought they had forgotten but the staff wouldn't considered it at all. The salad didn't look much better than the free ones we had with the daily special (grilled fish)... The... More

Visited this restaurant with my family. The restaurant at ground level was full up and the waitress offered us a table on the first floor which we agreed and were happy. We did our orders and she brought us the drinks. After ten minutes she came and asked us to change the table to another one at ground floor level.... More
