Marsaxlokk fishing village is the largest fishing harbour of Malta. It has been so since antiquity and today the greater part of fish sold on the islands are caught by fishermen coming from this village. Traditional luzzu’s and larger fishing vessels line the sheltered harbour in a colourful display that has been the subject of countless photo shoots.
During the week, fishermen coming in with their catch take the fish to the fish market in Marsa – a recently opened facility. From there, hawkers, fish retailers, restaurant owners and others gather in the early hours of the morning to buy fish for redistribution. However, on Sundays, fish is sold directly to consumers by the fishermen from stalls in the Marsaxlokk Sunday fish market.
Indeed, the restaurant itself has enjoyed a long-standing reputation amongst locals for the delicious food it offers at excellent value for money. It is especially renowned for its homemade pizzas, cakes and wines, as well as its large selection of dishes, all of which are served in ample portions.
Likewise the personalised service and comfortable accommodation available has enabled people from all over the world to enjoy a holiday tailored to their individual needs at a price they can afford. Their guest book is testimony to the fact that if you want to be looked after during your stay on Malta, there is nowhere better.
