We had a wonderful meal with friends. Served well by Mario. This was not our first visit but took along friends who like good food and was not disappointed. The scallops and the helwa are divine.

While on holiday in Marsascala, we have eaten here twice, once for lunch which was good to average and once for breakfast, not so good but Full English breakfasts abroad rarely are. We ate inside for breakfast in the hope that the terrible fly problem which every restauraunt has, to be fair, but there seemed to be more flys inside... More

This restaurant is one of our favorites. The food is good and the service is friendly. Prices are slightly higher than the average economy restaurants, but on the whole it is well worth a visit

We visited this restaurant to find the 'a la carte' side of the building was closed. We went next door to the more 'popular' aspect which had outdoors seating as well as indoors. Although the place was almost empty, we had trouble finding a table outside which the staff would allow us to sit at....eing told repeatedly that 'this one... More

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...

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.
