There are several cafes and restaurants to choose from - mainly italian. We picked this one as it had good lunchtime specials on offer. Pizzas for 1.25 lira or Pasta dishes for 1.40 lire with a free glass of wine.
The food was served pipping hot by friendly staff. A lovely laid back lunch enjoyed here.
Favorite Dish: Pasta with tuna and fresh herbs was delicious. Pizzas were large and of the thin crust variety - vey moist and tasty. We split our dishes between us so we could have a taste of each as usual - but not the wine, I got to drink that myself ;-0
Not as well known in Malta as its nearby neighbour Marsaxlokk but perhaps more of a real harbour town and less tourist trappings .
A lovely place to stroll and have a lazy lunch at a waterside cafe. It was a delightful time here on our last day in Malta and we were glad to make it here after a last trip in to Valletta in the morning.
Favorite thing: Maarsaskala or Marsascala as it is sometimes spelt, was the scene of the last Turkish assault on Malta in 1641. The turks managed to land but were beaten back by the Knights who soon built a fortress on the headland to deter any future attacks.
Favorite thing: A bit further round from the salt pans - near the large Hotel Jerma Palace - is St Thomas Tower - one of many fortifications that were built along the maltese coast.to deter maurading Turks and other invaders.
