We have been to Marsascala for 5 years now and we always enjoy eating at the Coxswain's Cabin. The hostess is a good cook and provides some lovely meals. Sunday lunch is a favourite. Lyndsey and her staff are very friendly without being intrusive. The Coxswain's Cabin has been an important part of our holiday and we look forward to... More

Whenever we stay in Malta we go to eat and drink here relaxed and good value for money. With views of the harbour and good but unobtrusive music and conversation we love to chill and relax and let the world go by

Well located in the harbour area with both indoor and outdoor dining. The menu is in line with other restaurants in the area and is well priced. The chargrilled burgers - which were of a high quality - are cooked to order and come with a very generous helping of chips and side salad. The staff are friendly and nothing... More

Went there whilst waiting for our taxi to the airport. The coffee is great and the prawn salad is worth waiting for. Service is slightly slow but Malta time is slower than the UK anyway. Air conditioned which is good when waiting to go to the airport to fly home and it's 41 degrees! Cisks are cold and welcome is... More

This Pub is run by a lovely British lady all by herself. Because she's cooking the food as well you may have to wait a little bit for your food but trust me, it's worth it! I ate a Black Angus Burger and my Mum had Ribs. The portions were very big and you could tell that everything was fresh.... More

I've been to coxswain many times and never disappointed the food is cooked and presented beautifully. A must say Jake makes a wonderful cappuccino. Can't the beat the price for the quality and quantity. The owner makes you feel so welcome. Fantastic keep the good work up.
