Have been to Duncan's during an outing to the fireworks festival. However, with this restaurant we were let down big time. With quite a few empty tables, service was still the worst ever to experience. Waiters were all over the place and after several attempts to try and catch one to take our order, he came without a pen and... More

I ate the Sicilian Arancini (rice ball) with a nice cappuccino. Both were very pleasing and the coffee was really good. Service was really terrific. I will be returning!

We called in for a snack one afternoon and returned for lunch the next day. No overly fussy but good value home cooked food with excellent friendly staff. The arancini balls are a definite must. We were so impressed by the helpful owners who were happy to show us the accommodation as well, that we are planning a return trip... More

They told us that if we want to stay in shadow we must order proper food-meat or fish....If we want only coffee we have to move under the sun! And they force us to leave!! Most horrible attitude ever! We use to... More

this restuarant is situated right at the left hand side of Marsaxlokk bay and gives views over the bay.We stopped for a glass of wine and a pastizzi which are not easy to get as not all restuarants sell them Very good though and worth looking for.

We were delighted to find Duncan's and what a warm welcome we received. The place was packed on Sunday midday yet they were very willing to look after us. This is a no frills restaurant yet the warmth of the staff makes up for this. We had two decent really hot cups of tea and cakes all were delicious. A... More
