We visited here three times during our three night stay; twice for drinks, after dinner elsewhere, and once for dinner. On the drinks front, I recommend the apple and cinnamon ice tea! When eating here, we were given a tasty free appetiser. For our main,...More

We ate twice at Murella during our recent holiday in Marsalforn. We cannot fault the food, staff or restaurant it was excellent. We were offered antipasti on both occasions and this was not expected at all. Even better, the Cisk was on draught!

We arrived very late, this was the only place open during the off-season. We were immediately glad we found this gem, it has stunning decor and great food on offer. Right on the coast, you can see the sea - would recommend this to anyone.More

Generous portion of bruscetta. Starter dips were nice. My husband had the crispy chicken burger which was packed with bacon cheese and salad. Decent portion of chips. Reasonably priced and at least they were open as lots of others were closed!

Nice selection of pasta burgers and pizza plus some Maltese dishes. Some of the staff were friendly however some others were just going through the motions ( low season blues perhaps). Two large tv with football but not an out and out sports bar.

well, we actually wanted to eat there, take a tea first, do some work and eat. After having been served a tea with tap water that clearly tasted salty, we tried to finish the cups of tea and left. Very unfriendly service on top.
