The restaurant fully lived up to his recommendation. The food was excellent. The service was friendly and welcoming. In daylight the... More

Finally a nice restaurant near the water without a television on. Including nice music and a great view on the bay. I was here on business and therefore eating alone. Had a good rib-eye with mixed veggies. Accompanied with a local red wine it was a pleasure to sit and eat.

Walked miles along the seafront to build up an appetite for lunch and came across this small bar and restaurant perched above the sea. It's at the head of a small bay with the headland curving round to both left and right and a seat on the terrace gives a spectacular view. Yes, the clear plastic blinds are down to... More

We planned to visit the restaurant, after reading TripAdvisor recommendations. We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered it is just across our hotel. So, our first meal in Malta was at Fresco's I am on a gluten free diet and was very happy that everything was well labelled, with gluten free alternatives. The food was really perfectly prepared, nicely served... More

Decided to pop in as the view of the sea was fantastic. We ordered some cocktails and considered food maybe after a drink but when the waiter asked if we were eating we said not just now. We decided on cocktails whilst we waited for an appetite to build but because of this we were moved away from the nice... More

We thank 'Stephen H' for finding the time to review his recent visit to Fresco's Restaurant. Customer feedback is important to us as it helps us to constantly improve our service. In this particular case however we feel that the points raised in this review are a bit unfair. Fresco's has a very limited number of covers indoors in winter... More

Stopped for early dinner and it was very good. We ate on the rooftop which can get chilly but they supply blankets and heaters. My husband had a t-bone which was excellent and my seafood pasta was good. Only feedback would be they didn't clear table and I noticed this for a few diners. We paid and dirty plates were... More

We had dinner here on our last night and the experience was amazing. The service from the staff and the owner were second to none and was almost embarrassing how much attention they pay to you. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Beautiful View in Sliema

My favourite is the pumpkin gnocci, as it's delicious, fresh, and filled with magic. Service is attentive, drinks are generous, and I especially love sitting outside in the fresh air.
