Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Ta' Victor restaurant is situated in the quaint fishing village of Marsaxlokk in the South of Malta. Chef/Patron Victor has a passion for traditional Maltese food and offers a menu that includes all the usual suspects when it comes to typical local cuisine. This ranges from rabbit to lamb, snails to octopus, lasagne to local fish and much more. It is all served in welcoming Maltese hospitality in a restaurant that is ideal for all the family. The location on the main Marsaxlokk square in front of the Parish church and right across the road from the fishing harbour is also a big plus which just adds to the local feel of the place.

“sunday lunch with the family”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We were 8 persons eating there and we were really surprised when we got the bill as it was so cheap and very good food. I will recommend to go as I will definitely will go back again. The only thing that there is that one waiter don't think that he understands English as we asked for the bill and some other things and had to ask someone else to get the proper things that we asked for.

“The Local's Haunt”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

A Maltese friend swung us into this neighbourhood. The objective was to experience a good fish restaurant and Maltese life. It achieved both. Though I wouldn't give it the 4.5 or 5 stars many do.

Sure it's good. We were here early season. The water front was dead-silent. A few eiry street lights flickering. Old style Maltese fishing boats gently tugging at their anchorage. All very quaint. And the one place with any real buzz was this one. We were the only tourists / foreigners in the house, everyone else was a Maltese thirty and forty-something. Chatty atmosphere.

Chef comes out of his lair to chat with the locals, including us, in Maltese, something our host considered slightly off given most Maltese, if not all, can speak English. Maybe it was to accentuate the restaurant's Maltese provenance. I sense it might have been.

On holiday "Ambience" often matters more to me than the food but the meal was good. The starters were rustled up by said-proprietor: a mixed plate of local sausages, marinated vegetables, tapenade and Italian-style toasted breads with savoury toppings. Plentiful but not too overwhelming that you feel you'll never squeeze back into your swim suit the next morning. The main course was sea bass and roasted vegetables - perfectly poached. Filleted at the table.

The wine was excellent. We went for a local, dry white. Maybe my memory is getting fuzzy but I always think these rocky outcrops in The Med produce acidic wines.., clearly memories of Greece in the early career years cast a long shadow, unfairly so, over all wine-makers in this diaspora. The one we chose was very drinkable, and my wallet wasn't much lighter for it.

The desert was simple - soft fig tart and ice-cream. Though the cheeky side if me wonders if it wasn't a baked fig-Newton with ice-cream. Ok, now I'm being really unfair, it was the right desert for a fulfilling meal and charming evening.

I can highly recommend this taverna but whilst one of the few 5 stars I would give is indeed to a very simple but exquisite taverna near Lucca in Italy, I wouldn't give this establishment 5 stars. It's well worth the visit but lacks the range of dishes and, ironically, quite possibly true-provenance.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

Malta platter for starter was delicious and huge, almost enough for lunch.
Fish soup wasn't as we used to eat, strange taste, like vegetables meat minestrone.
See bass fish and octopus, was great.
Desert was good too.
