I have been sitting here reading through some of the reviews of this restaurant and they have made me laugh on this wet night here in Marsaxlokk.
Over priced bistro! No chips! Really folks?
We have just had a lovely meal in this very smart restaurant, our first time visiting and wouldn't hesitate to return.
The restaurant is very nicely decorated with proper linen napkins, proper table clothes and good quality cutlery something not found in a bistro, the menu is obviously not bistro standard and is far superior to that which would be found in a bistro.
Over priced! I think not, yes fresh fish is priced at €5 per 100g however when you put that in to perspective you get a decent sized and very well cooked fresh fish for around €15 and this includes your sides, so unless you are ordering something whale sized you don't pay more than any other comparable restaurant.
Tonight we were served very attentively by our waiter and our meals were cooked to perfection, I had fresh Red Snapper which at €17.50 wasn't in my opinion over priced, mind you I don't mind paying for quality in a restaurant with a nice ambiance.
My wife's Fettuccine Gamberi was delicious and the prawns were exceptionally tasty.
The whole meal including wine, bottled water and dessert came to €46 which I felt given the quality and portions represented very good value.
As I mentioned our waiter was very attentive and came around to make sure everything was ok with our meal (which it was) and this would be the time to speak up if you have a complaint instead of moaning on a forum after the event when there is no opportunity for it to be put right, if my meal was missing chips or not satisfactory I would simply call the waiter over, not difficult.
As I mentioned at the start of my review I wouldn't hesitate in returning here, however with the time restraints of a holiday and soooo many excellent restaurants in Marsaxlokk to try this might not happen on this trip.
