Our usual takeaway pizza place was closed, so I went to Il Fanal. Wow, big mistake. The pizza was truly terrible. It was mushroom, but if you closed your eyes and ate it you would have no idea. The mushrooms were either very old or tinned, no flavour whatsoever. The middle of the pizza fell out it was so thin... More

Went to fanal for Chinese food and it was very good.There are a lot of Chinese restaurants around who serve only Chinese food and are by far not so good.Quality,portion and price the most expensive set menu for 2 is 14.75 for both.You will not find any place value for money as here.

Although an unassuming restaurant we had a warm welcome and were given a choice of seats. An extensive menu and wine choice. Our friends shared a set menu and we had stir fried prawns and cashews with steamed rice and stir fried vegetables. All came quickly and were hot as were plates which had been on the burner in front... More

Pizzeria cum chinese cum a la carte; TV screens with football; lots of waiters; friendly service. No glitzy decor, but massive space standards.

I am not that fussy when it comes to food but I was so disappointed when I went there with my family which includes an almost 2 years toddler who eats anything. I ordered something from the kid's menu for him and was so disgusted by the way they DEEP FRIED the fish fingers and chicken nuggets! They were dripping... More

I have been to this place dozens of times, but always for pizza, which is one of the best i have ever tasted in Malta. It is thin and crispy, and not the type of pizza with the false idea that the most you put in it makes it better. If it's Capricciosa, it is Capricciosa, and nothing more. Each... More
