Six of us went. Ordered 3 Heinekens and 1 Cisk. Received 4 identical glasses of unchilled beer. The liquor in the fish soup was tasty enough, but only because the lumps of fish in the soup had been cooked to tasteless. Main courses arrived, chips a bit later, but no veg until we were well into the dishes. 4 deserts ordered, the ice cream arrived immediately and already melting, the other 3 some 15 minutes later. One desert contained the trade-off plastic tab from the pot. Staff very offhand. Would I go there again? Never.

The fish was good, the risotto also. Service was fine, but the best is the view from the terrace. Of course, this is reflected also in the rather high prices.

Arzella has been consistently excellent for years now. Chris, the host, is a passionate man, obsessed with good food and great service. The place specialises in seafood but has a variety of different dishes, all delicious. I had fresh fish (Bazuk) and it was delicious. They also provide gluten-free bread and offer plenty of options for Celiacs. The views from the restaurant are gorgeous.

180 degrees stunning authentic sea view on the open roof terrace. Fresh and better tasting than the sea food dishes served around the majority of restaurants around the island. Accurate portions, accurate waiting time. Personal attention and will to satisfy our preferences, as well as professional and adequate recommendations on food and beverage products available. Had a lovely and complete experience, definitely coming back when first chance appears.

Wow that a surprise. This restaurant is such a gem! Up some stairs, there is a beautiful view over Marsalforn bay. The service was 5*, very very nice staff. The wine was amazing, as well as the seafood pasta, and a delicious cheesecake.Everything was perfect, we really recommend this place if you wish to have a memorable meal.
