Ate here many times a couple of weeks ago, whilst staying in Marsascala. Excellent food and can cater very efficiently for large groups - our largest was about 27! The owners are very welcoming and charming and the staff professional and polite. Would definitely recommend eating here.

A lovely relaxed atmosphere here, we chose to eat outside, the food came quickly and was tasty and the portion sizes were good, it's a busy place especially on weekends when they seem to have a lot of young staff some are more experienced than others, a young lad with glasses got a few of our orders wrong on few...

Food fresh and we'll cooked. We were a table of 10 including 2 children. Some ordered meat others fish and others shellfish and even gluten free pasta. Everything was very good and delicious including a variety of sweet dishes for after. We were served quickly. A lovely meal in a nice setting.

This is one of those restaurants you love or hate. I personally love this place, the food is good and reasonably priced. The owners are one of a kind. Visit for an experience you'll never forget.

We went there to have dinner one gine day. The staff are good, the food is delicious but flies keep flying and tasting from.your plates especially if you eat on the terrace outside. The owner comes near you and starts talking whilst you're eating making it obvious to you that he needs you to stand up,pay and leave as soon... More

Wide choice of food which comes in big portions. Service is friendly although might appear over friendly to new clients. We got used to Mario's and Karmenu's approach and the place wouldn't be the same without them. Value for money.

Went for lunch - a snack, rather than meal. We had a lovely time. Nice bottle of wine, good service and the food was great. Massive toasted sandwich and great tuna roll on local bread.

We had an awful experience eating here. First and foremost, the waiter who looked to be the owner had no idea about manners. The waiters looked very unhappy in their job. Kitchen door was left open and like everyone else in the restaurant, we could hear the chef swearing loudly with no sense of decency for people eating or children... More

Grabiel is a family run business. Vast menu although we are well known by Maltese locals for our fresh fish and seafood specialities. Grabiel is separated in two parts; the main restaurant that is open for lunch and dinner, as well as the terrazza that is open everyday from 9am - 1030pm.
