Chose Zeri’s from the Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Very pleasant experience with friendly and attentive service. We had sautéed squid, meagre and sea bass fillet; all were excellent. Definitely recommended.

This place seems to cater for the business people from the Hilton hotel across the marina, as well as us tourists, so it was a bit expensive - but the food was beautifully cooked and good portions as well. We had mussels and the (massive)...Portobello mushroom to start, followed by the lamb and the brown meagre (it's fish - and I admit I had to Google it!). Two, hopefully constructive, criticisms however: - the waiters continuously come to the tables to fill your wine glasses up. I find this wrong on a number of levels. I'm pretty sure it would subconsciously make you drink faster (good sales tactic, but a bit irresponsible) plus the person drinking the fastest at the table also then drinks the most, but chips in the same as everyone else!!! - they don't have any zero/low alcohol beer. The Cisk one is really good - get it on the menu!! This would probably have been a five star review but for the last two points.More

We had a large group dinner last night at Zeri’s and were thoroughly impressed throughout. It was the best fish we have had in Malta and the staff were super friendly and professional.
