Reviewed yesterday NEW

The service was fast, the dishes were tasty. There was a cat walking around the restaurant terrace but that seems to be common in MAlta.

Love this place. Book a window table, enjoy the view, sample the starter and Oder a whole fish between two. Always good. A must do whenever we visit Malta.

After a stroll up to the Casino we were feeling a little peckish. Spotting a Burger King we popped in but at the equivalent of over £10 for a whopper meal we decided against it. We walked back to our apartment which was across the road from this establishment so we went in for supper. We order two hand made,... More

I have a feeling that you have confused our restaurant with another establishment. You mentioned that this place is close to the Casino so I assume that it must be in St. Julians or Paceville but Fresco's is actually in nearby Sliema. Another clue is that whilst we do serve excellent pizzas, we do not use linen tablecloths and napkins.... More

Visited this restaurant last year so booked again and wasn't disappointed. I had prawns to start and muscles for main and both were delicious service was great and we had a few cocktails which were lovely. It's situated in a great spot with great views definitely worth a visit

We got there for dinner, it was not a planned choice. The rabbit I had was well done, although I would have preferred it with the sides on the same plate. The risotto my wife took was terrible, the rice was poor and putting salmon and mushrooms together did not taste like a good choice. It was the cheapest bill... More

We thank 'Paolo B' for his review. We take customer feedback very seriously as it helps us to constantly improve our service. The title of this review is a bit misleading since Fresco's is not an Italian restaurant. It is a Maltese restaurant offering a varied international menu including Maltese specialities like the Maltese style rabbit dish that the reviewer... More

This was now the second year we revisited Fresco´s and were as delighted. The idea of slow food shows through and enjoyed very much my grilled calaramis and rabbit stew. Excellent food and attentive service

Fresco's is centrally located on the main Promenade of Sliema and highly popular with very good reviews yet we decided to try our luck on a Saturday night even though we had no reservation. We lucked out and in fact the manager went out of his way to try to find us a good table after we felt that the... More

After experiencing problems throughout the day on our trip to Gozo, on our return we chose to dine here to cheer ourselves up. Good choice. The food lived up to expectations and the service was efficient and friendly. A good selection on the menu, all well presented. We recommend this restaurant on the water's edge!

Tried here for lunch yesterday as it looked nice and was convenient being so close to the shore. I had the chicken breast burger which was nice and the service was attentive. Nothing very unique about it but very nice just the same.
