Fish was ok, batter was nice. Chips were of the frozen variety, chunky beefeater ones which were tasty enough but would have preferred proper fresh chips. Onion rings and mushy peas were good. Rest of the menu looked decent and prices were very cheap. Will maybe go back and try something different and sit in. Not near as good as... More

A good priced chappie with an eclectic mix of food. Not like a British chippie but clean and friendly on tourist street so easy to find not far from bus station and San Antonio hotel

There is a good menu, including local dishes but we "went British" and had Haddock & Chips with mushy peas, bread & butter and tea !! It was very good at a decent price. Good service, clean with clean toilets (quite a rarity). The menu did look quite good and next visit will be more adventurous. Would recommend.

I have visited here previous years and was so pleased to come again. I am staying at a hotel with the same name in Qawra some 10 mins walk away where I have been on half board for 2 weeks and now I am on B&B. Apart from the seafood platter I had last evening in the Ocean Basket (... More

It's very unusual to have fish with such a light and tasty batter. Once again a really good meal and excellent value.

Fantastic Fish and Chips, cream of Chicken soup and Sword fish platter. Was flexible to swap the set menu dessert option to tea. Freshly made tea was as good as home made one!

Ate here on more than one occasion. Food always pleasant, service is ok, and the portion size is acceptable. They do have a fair range on the menu. The fish and chips is NOT like the UK but not bad, the only problem is that the place is very small so can be quite cramped, I would recommend you go... More

What a lovely little restaurant. The food is so fresh and a large selection of food. Whilst on holiday for 3 weeks we are here nearly every day for breakfast and lunch. The selection of fresh fish and muscles dish was amazing and the price was reasonable, portion sizes are real value for money. The cod and chips is better... More
