We met up with family on a Sunday lunchtime and the place was packed with local families and friends eating here. That was a good sign. The food is priced well, compared to tourist focussed restaurants. I would say around 15% cheaper than other restaurants of a similar offering. There are two sides to this establishment; one side is a... More

We were immediately waited upon and served with a smile by all the staff present during that night. The food was quickly delivered, and it was great! The whole experience was very pleasurable and it was all at a good price. The fact the place has its own parking was an extra plus to our meal :)

An early flight meant that we could drop cases and walk to the Terrazza section of Grabiel's. As the sun was glorious we chose to sit outside. This visit we had brought along 2 friends - one who had never experienced Malta and the other who had been once many years ago. Well - as always we were welcomed by... More

Grabiel Restaurant is one of my favourite fish food restaurants in Malta. I have been visiting this restaurant so often. Delicious food, nice staff and good value for money is what you get when you eat at Grabiel's

Went for a Birthday Breakfast for my husband with our family. Beautiful day! The breakfast was laid out beautifully and they accomated our special requests as two of us are vegetarians. The owners and all the staff are always very friendly and attentive, which explains why it is always so popular - that and the fact they open earlier than... More

My friends and I were looking for a place where we could have something small to eat, such as baguettes, toasts etc, no main and big dishes. This restaurant in the midst of Marsascala offers such bites, compared to others which limit the choice to big dishes such as burgers, pizzas and the like. We went there at around 9:30pm... More
