Delicious fresh fish and octopus fried in garlic. The roast potatoes were most flavoursome and roast vegetables freshly prepared. Service was efficient and polite. Not to be missed! Apparently some of the fish and octopus are caught by owner’s husband.

The food is great, including fresh fish and seafood. A good selection of Maltese wines is also available. And the view over Marsaxlokk Bay while you are enjoying the food - priceless!

The Three Sisters is the name in Eglish. Family run eatery right beside the fishermen's boats. Seefood at it's best, huge plates, reasonable prices and friendly staff. The octopus on garlic is a must!

Dined by the waterfront on a special grilled fish meal, three different fish with sides all for a set 12 euro. Wines and drinks choice was extensive and local wine was good. Service was attentive and helpful, worth a visit.

Fish sharing platter is well worth going for. They advertise that her husband catches nearly all the fish - he must be a very busy fisherman. A genuine place and not the tourist trap you might have feared on the front.

You can get a very good plate of mixed fish (locally caught) for €12. Having paid considerably more than that for burgers and salads in other restaurants I consider Ta Frenc very good value.
