Except the shrimps that we took as a starter all the other plates were less than average. The mussels had no taste. We don't recommend it.

We have always enjoyed eating at this restaurant but it surpassed itself this visit. We had a lovely lunch our first day - and returned not once but three times in the week we were staying in Malta. The price was amazing, compared with other places, the service slick and efficient and the fish was absolutely superb. My husband had... More

, Marsaxlokk is the prettiest fishing village you could wish for & as you might expect has wall to wall restaurants. This one has excellent fish some allegedly caught by "my husband" Had a Sea Bream from Heaven (or at least nearby). Reasonably priced for food and decent wine

Stopover on HOHO south tour. Many restaurants to choose from. Lady out the front had a good sales pitch "husbands fisherman and catches what we serve" coupled with some enticing specials and a Trip Advisor Certificate of excellence proudly displayed. We ordered the swordfish and fruto misto both accompanied with fresh salad - coupled with a glass of local white... More

Stopped for a look around this lovely fishing harbour. Friendly staff explained dish of the day so we took a table At ordering time the same friendly lady suggested that we share the fish platter which turned out to be perfect for us. Less profit for them but great PR. Food great, service excellent

The location was nice and had a lot of positive ratings here so we gave it a shot. We had a fritto misto as a starter and mixed fish and the octopus stew as main courses. They were all edible, nothing more. Never again.

This friendly little restaurant was packed with locals - a good sign! Run by three sisters whose three husbands catch the fish, so has to be good (and fresh). The barracuda was recommended, and it did not disappoint. Very efficient and friendly service. Good value.
