A new restaurant has opened by the fishing harbour, which specialises in locally sourced Maltese and Gozotan food. We have tried all the other places in Marsalforn and this one really is outstanding!
Chef Gordon decided that he would not follow the herd like everyone else and cater to the quick and cheap Pizza market. If you want that, go elsewhere. This place is for traditional local dishes, cooked to perfection, bursting with flavour and freshness.
Gordon's Aljotta, a tridtional fish and shellfish soup, is without a doubt, the best my wife has ever tasted - and she has tried a lot of it over the years. The Bragjoli (rolled parcels of fine beef encasing pork and herb stuffing, briased in wine and tomatoes) were out of this world.
Sweets include old traditional dishes like Maltese bread pudding with home made "condensed milk" ice cream (Gelat tat-tieg). Mouthwatering! Or try the home made ice creams, including cinamon and the surperbly flavoured fig.
We ended up going back 5 times in 10 days and everything we had was delicious and authentic. We've tried the other places that rank so highly on here, and, frankly, they are not a patch on this place. Both tourists and locals should try this place and experience the quality and care taken in the cooking.
Prices (June 2011 E = Euros) Starters range between E4.90 and E6.90, mains between E12.90 up to E18.50 for a wonderful Irish fillet of beef. Fish dishes between E15.90 and E17.90
Everyone else in Marsalforn caters at least in part to the cheap pizza and tourist menu. Here, you get real good local food, uncompromising and superb!
Service is friendly, welcoming and their personalised service and attention to detail is outstanding. We absolutely recommend this place! I am half Maltese myself and the memories this food evoked of home cooking were truly wonderful.
