Our bad mistake in Marsaxlokk. All waiters seems like lost in space. We just waited about hour to our dishes (simple fish salad and pizza). Meal was not so bad, but definitely not so tasty. I do not recommend this restaurant.

Enjoy fresh fish plattes on the terrasses at very reassonable price. The service is correct and you can enjoy being seated along the small harbor of Marsaxlokk with the colored fishing boats

This restaurant is located at what is likely to the end of your stroll along the harbour front, but it is well worth the 1/4 mile walk. I ate at a couple of other harbour front restaurants and had the best food at this one...More

Came to Marsaxlokk while in Malta on holiday. We hadn’t eaten since breakfast so decided to have a late lunch or early dinner. Found this place nearly at the end of the harbour. We had the set menu I started with prawn cocktail and my...More

It’s busy when you walk past and I really don’t know why. Yes, the portions are big but the food is not particularly nice. My octopus pasta was very greasy and I felt a bit sick afterwards to be honest. They have a station where...More
