Absolutely delicious seafood and fish, decent portions and fantastic service. A bit overpriced but still acceptable and what’s more - totally worth it! House wine is very good. Also desserts are good so is the coffee.

Absolutely the best veal cutlet I have ever had. Everyone at our table was swooning over their meals as well. We also ordered the mussels which were to die for and the friend mixed seafood was fantastic as well. Our best meal in Malta yet....More

I've been to Portopalo several times over the past 6 months. The manager is a friendly, professional, and welcoming face of the restaurant. The food is good, the atmosphere is cozy, and the wine is wonderful. This is a "go to" place for me.

We wanted a nice seafood evening meal. We were not disappointed. Staff looked after us. We had three courses, beer and wine. Lovely dips, crab soup, seafood pasta, fab desert. I would go back.

We had somme appetizers in the form of tosted bread with chick pea purée, red bean purée and délicius marinated olives. Also had an excellent sea food risotto, my spouse had linguini with fresh crab. We were both very happy with our respective choices.
