Do not miss to visit this fishermen's real village that dedicated a monument to the families of its fishermen. Above all, do not miss to visit this classy restaurant when you visit Malta! Service is very good, all courses are excellent and innovative, few tables and many people serving you but also helping you to pick up the fish that best fits your wish. Also, very good quality/price ratio. Finally, wines are fine.

The 3 stars are the mean between the food (5 stars for Malta standards) and the service (1 star by any standards).
The food was really tasty and better quality than all the other places we’ve been to in Malta. Great prawn carpaccio and super tasty dish of the day.
The service has been poor all along. With un-friendly and overworked staff. We were actually discussing wether to leave a tip or not. But we decided to leave for the sake of the chef who delivered really good food. However, what topped it all when it comes to service was when the waitress cleaning up our table splashed red sauce (from my plate) on both my husband and my daughter. This is inexcusable and the main reason why we gave this place a 3 star in stead of 5.

Impeccable service and the food is simply delicious and stunning! Oysters and starters were amazingly fresh and main course of beef cheek and sea bass simply melted in your mouth! Accompanying veg and potatoes were also cooked perfectly. Wonderful evening! Definitely will visit again!

Was there on Saturday evening. What an atmosphere. I love this place. Best fish restaurant on the island. Excellent service throughout. Early booking recommended.

One of our best meals on the island. From the moment we walked in Rena and the whole staff made us feel special and at home. We sat looking out over the window on to the colorful harbor and beautifully painted boats of Marsaxlokk. The meal that followed was exceptional. Shrimp carpaccio – delicate and sweet, homemade local fish rillets with rustic bread, warm spiced Maltese fish soup, beautifully tender risotto with shitake, guanciale, prawns, parmesan and lemon oil, black homemade tortellini with prawns and crab in a creamy honey sauce, and delicious tender locally caught fish. But really what made this meal special was the wonderful people, Rena and her team were just wonderful. When we couldn’t decide between two dishes, she brought us out a little of both so we could sample everything! They were incredibly kind and the food was outstanding! This is an absolute must if you are in Marsaxlok! We can’t wait to return.
