Relaxed atmosphere. Excellent yummy pasta with chicken, good sized portions, and cooked exactly how it's supposed to be al dente, and they didn't mind changing the type of pasta or presenting it with less ingredients than on the menu. It's also pet friendly and they even brought a small bowl of water for our dog! Will def be going there... More

We went here for a meal while staying in Marsaskala. We were pleasantly surprised by both service and food. I had smoked paupiettes of smoked salmon with prawns,served with a side salad ,and seasonal vegetables which were very tasty. Especially the cabbage cooked in cream and egg. My husband had lasagne and chips. Equally tasty.

The restaurant was half full with customers as it was around eight o'clock. The waiters that were outside were in a clique near the entrance to the inside seating area, laughing and chatting, and did... More

We visited this retaurant twice during our stay in Marsascala. Food was excellent. Service was very good, and prices were very reasonable. Lovely to sit outside on a warm evening. It does get busier later on but early evening is just perfect. Will be back again on our next visit!

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.
