All the restaurants along the waterfront tout for business and we selected this one as they were offering a fixed price fish platter. Price was on a par with the competition. We ordered a bottle of wine but had to chase this up as the waiter had forgotten the order. We were also surprised that no fresh plates arrived with... More

The food here was tasteless. All the 3 plates of pasta. Two with fish and one with chicken. Plus it is not the cheapest of places. To add insult to injury we were served by a rude server. Definitely we won't be returning. Try at your own risk.

Great location by the shore (as are most other restaurant by the quayside in Marsaxlok). Food was good enough though a bit disappointed that the lampuchi order - 12 Euro - which we preferred be filleted instead of served as a whole fish - was very skimpy, with only one small fillet on the plate.

Went for lunch, had a day offer which included starters, set of just caught fish for main and wine. Food was amazing as well as the location. Although the restaurant was really busy, the service was pleasant and quick.

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
