I have been eating here since I was a kid. Simon the chef is always consistent with his food, always serving fresh fish and shellfish . Definitely worth a visit

It's always a pleasure and a guarantee to visit Ximo - fresh produce, ample and well cooked dishes, attentive service, relaxed location and an honest, no-frills and genuine experience all around. Prices are very friendly, fish is highly recommended.. keep the good work up!

Always spend time during our visits here for breakfast. The Maltese omelette and coffee or a bottle of Rose depending on the one we get there is a must. Great food, friendly service and value for money.

Visited Marsascala hoping to have lunch at a favourite restaurant. Being a Monday we found it closed (should have checked before). Walking along the promenade we came across this small restaurant. Must say we were all pleasantly surprised. The fresh fish was excellent and very well cleaned. Prawns and Muscles were also delicious. The staff were very helpful and service... More

We only stopped here for drinks. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Prices were very reasonable. Perhaps next time we will find time to eat.

Although the swordfish had sold out by the time we arrived I was offered a choice of three fresh fish which I could inspect before the Chef Patron prepared a whole sea bass for me: beautifully cooked and served with good chips and a salad. Nice to eat on the pavement overlooking the harbour. The owners have worked there for... More

Food is cooked there and then and this can be vouched by us since our son wanted a particular sauce which was not on the menu. They prepared it for him and it was excellent. Our food was excellent as well and it tasted that it is freshly cooked. No long time waiting and excellent service. I recommend this restaurant... More

When a chef and also owner carefully sources the freshest ingredients, then cooks them to perfection without adding any fancy sauces or extraordinary decoration, the result is a plate that is a delight to the palate and that sets one off in a time capsule to bygone times when food was the pride in preparation not elaboration. This is what... More

Marsascala is seaside town not far from Valetta and with lots of bus connections. The sea front has numerous restaurants and pubs. We chose XIMO which had the most interesting menu and shared a seafood platter at lunchtime with a half bottle of Italian wine. The prawns, mussels and clams on the platter were delicious. The sun was shining on... More
