Description: Zion Reggae & Snack Bar opened in May 2011, instead of what was the Morning Star in St. Thomas Bay, Marsascala. We're situated a few meters away from the sea, have a large shaded outdoor seating area, just by the sea, indoor seating is also available for when it gets a bit chilly and our unique reggae yard at the back, for those relaxing summer nights with refreshing cocktails and reggae and alternative music parties We offer a varied menu, which is sure to suit everybody's tastes. At Zion we host regular reggae nights & parties in collaboration with various artists both locally and internationally.

“Great Restaurant and Chill out bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This place is split in two sections on the front you have outdoor seating for a traditional restaurant feel (with views of the bay), and on the back side there is a reggae bar with an adjoining chill-out area (basically a field with sofas and cushions). The Food menu is very big and caters for all tastes at reasonable prices. I ate there 3 times recently. First time I took the marinara (seafood) pizza, that was full of muscles, tuna, octopus etc. and topped with 2 king prawns: very tasty and filling; second time I took the Jamaican which a is a basically a spicy homemade burger topped with a pineapple slice: this was a bit to hot for me but makes for an interesting combination; Third time I took the chicken salad which was massive, had plenty of big chicken chunks, green stuff, colored peppers, and interestingly dried plums and apricots: Very tasty and fulfilling. All at very reasonable price (check out the menu on their website) After eating you can had to the reggae bar or chill out area to take a few drinks in a great atmosphere. Only drawback is that is a bit out of the way and can be bit difficult to reach without a car.

“Good food, very reasonable prices, service with a smile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Went there for a relaxed meal with my bf and I was very pleasantly surprised. Zion has both inside and outside seating. We sat outside and in Summer the seaview and the breeze are just the thing :-) The waitress and the staff in general were very friendly and helpful, and the food came quite quickly. The menu is varied and there are Mediterranean, Jamaican, Pizza and burgers available. I had a burger and my bf had half a chicken. Both were excellent. The prices are very very convenient. All in all a very worthwhile evening. It is a relaxed place so not really for special occasions, however it s very good for a relaxed evening.

The place also has a very good bar not to mention that it's a venue for Raggae events, as well as alternative gigs and small traditional fairs, as it has a well appointed space for events at the back. Very nice place to visit in Summer. It has an indoor area with sofas for Winter.
