Went to Gnejna bay and on our way back stopped for lunch at il-Barri. We found it to be very pleasant environment and excellent food. Service was good and staff polite and friendly.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of dining with some friends from the Uk at this place. Table was booked for 7pm and we arrived early so opted to sit outside and have a couple of pre dinner drinks. Out came plate after plate of appetizers (on the house) . Then we went in for our meal. Three of us had the traditional Maltese rabbit meal and one had fresh sea bream. Complimented with a carafe of house red of course. What can i say ? This was by far the best food at a Maltese restaurant for a long time. For those who have not yet tried this restaurant i say do it . I won't even bother to mention price but suffice to say the value for money is as awesome as the taste of the food.

I brought my friend from England to see Mgarr as its a lovely little town. Where all the strawberries come from in Malta and if you haven't tasted a Maltese strawberry then you need to visit on April.

We came to this restaurant as it had horse on menu - our boys wanted to try it to see if they could tell the difference and it was lovely, tender just like stewing steak. We will definitely going back again and again as it was enjoyed so much.

Horse is not taboo in Malta and is part of their diet as is rabbit.

It's easily purchased in a butchers.

Anyway my friend and I just had salads but sampled the horse and we liked it too.

If you want to try horse pop to this little eatery in Mgarr.

Been with family to this restaurant very recently and must admit I did not expect the food to be as good. We had no tables booked so we were really lucky to find a place on a busy Saturday night. We opted for rabbit and it turned out to be one amongst the best on the island. The complimentary appetizers were really good as were the snails. Dessert was fine too. Only drawback was the service, you have too keep called the waiting staff for various things. Will definitely be returning there for another Fenkata!

The horse meat was so bad and tough to chew... Bad service also... I waited almost 1.50 hrs for main course... One of the worst restaurants ever
