Reviewed today NEW

Was with a group of 3 other friends on a Monday evening around 7PM, and every other restaurant either hadn't opened yet, or did not serve pizza, which was what we wanted really. So we decided to try out Southport more of a "last resort" thing at first rather than because we had already been there. For the first time... More

A lovely afternoon spent with the family. I wouldn't change anything about the food or the friendly staff. However it took forever to be served food ....

Having decided to go to Marsasxlokk for a lunch we sadly didn't go to our normal restaurant and instead visited Southport Villa. The service was reasonable although a bit slow - we ordered antipasto for a starter which was nice - traditional Maltese fare that was tasty and satisfying. We decided to go for fresh fish - after all being... More

Very disappointing lunch at this restaurant. Heavily overpriced and not much care into the food. In a few words...a 'tourist trap'.

Called in for a drink late evening as we knew this was a bar as well as a restaurant. The entrance was dirty with rubbish strewn outside. The bar was stacked with glasses and dishes, and whilst we appreciated that the staff were clearly busy in the restaurant, a customer is a customer and we felt like an inconvenience. The... More

We stopped here for a drink on a busy day when other places were saving tables for lunch customers, we had a friendly welcome and a great seat outside on the quayside. We then went back later for lunch which was good - the seafood linguine in particular. Service was a bit hit and miss though!

Went for lunch, a lovely setting overlooking the harbour. Had Linguine de Mere which was full of Mussels Clams Calamari Octopus and one huge King Prawn. A must visit if on Marsaxlokk.

Most harbourside restaurants were only serving full meals at lunchtime when we visited. Glad we called here as we only wanted a light bite. Pleasant staff and the toasted sandwiches were delicious and nicely presented.

The worst meal we have ever , and I mean ever , had served to us . The sea food was not fresh , some of the mussels hadn't opened the vegetables were shrivelled and been reheated . The staff were sullen and disinterested and this in a town noted for its sea food! We live in a fishing area... More

We treated ourselves to the fish platter for two on our visit to Marsaxlokk, in the South of the island. It proved to be the perfect choice for us, and the taste and selection was perfect. The meal started with bruschetta, then came the seafood, served with potatoes and vegetables. We washed it down with beer and white wine, sitting... More
