The fish platter was something to admire and look at, but delicious also to eat. The fresh fish that we ordered was also truly delicious.

Rip-off! Outside advertising: Fish shared for 2 for 28€ including wine. We ordered 2 (for 4 persons). They let us choose 2 fishes which (maybe) were prepared for us (maybe other fishes). Later they brought an additional tablet with some pieces of calamar and shells. We got a bill about 142€ : 95€ for the 2 fishes. When we left... More

You ordered fish for 4 and not the seafood platter listed on the advert, which is a total different thing, first you should learn how to read before going to a restaurant, Thanks More

What a wonderful restaurant, and beautiful views to match, as it is positioned right on the waterfront. A table of 6 was no issue for the waiters and the serviceprovided was wonderful. The team at ir-rizzu are attentive, welcoming and friendly. This restaurant is a must try if you are visiting Marsaxlokk.

We had a days sight seeing and our historian told us this was a good place for lunch. It obviously caters for tourists like us. We both went for the 'Rizzu' seafood platter. It had muscles, calamari, octopus, 3 medium size prawns, stuffed calamari and came accompanied by salad, chips and it looked like a bowl of aubergine. The meal... More

I'm serious. It was the best fish I've ever eaten in my life. We were visiting Marsaxlokk's Sunday market. It was well after 3pm when the restaurant usually closes, when we asked if we could be seated for lunch. The owner, who I learned was a fisherman in the area prior to starting the restaurant, said it would be ok.... More

We were eating Lampuki at the Ir-Rizzu in Marsaxlokk, because we wanted to eat fresh fish. The fish was good there, but everything else was made with a little too much oil (like the vegetables). It is very noisy in the restaurant and three TVs are showing regular TV shows.
