Yeah. I am easily scared, so don't take it so serious. But a place with no menu, and you have to listen to an explanation from someone at the counter to get what you want. Scary. Since I'm a bit disorientated...all the time...I easily get confused. There were a lot of meat and prices... and it kinda bothered me that... More

I have just been to this restaurant with my family for the second time. Quality of food over the top. We had steaks and Maltese sousage ,absolutely wonderful with very good side vegetables and home sliced french fries. Atmosphere perfect with courtesy of the waiters. Price is higher but quality experience. A must to go!

Absolutely nothing - nothing - was wrong with the whole experience! The restaurant itself looks great from the outside, and was warm, comfortable and welcoming inside. The staff were phenomenally good - from being greeted at the door, to being talked through the wine list. A special mention has to be made of the guy who talked us through our... More

I was angry about this at the time and writing this review reminds me again how bloody poor the whole experience was. In short, the fish wasn't fresh despite them claiming it was, I know my restaurants and I know my fish, it wasn't fresh, simple. To make matters worse some of the fish was over cooked !! Really !...

Hi Karl, I am sorry to hear this. Although this review is impossible as Sciacca has been closed down for over 7 months due to refurbishment. I believe that this review was meant for another restaurant close by in st.julians. More

Having eaten here on previous visits we were looking forward to enjoying some lovely fish, but discovered the restaurant is closed. A notice says closed for refurbishment so hopefully it will be open in the future but a lot of work still is needed, so please be aware and then you won't be disappointed as we were. There is another... More

One of my all time favorites, it's been a while since I went back but must go again soon. I saw that they are refurbishing at this time so will certainly go back soon. Brilliant for fish dishes, the lobster linguine are some of the best I have ever tried. A wide selection of wines too. The restaurant has the... More
