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

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.

We've stayed in hotel just opposite and went to a drink just because it was the nearest place. We've enjoyed our drinks and atmosphere so decided to go back next time for lunch - we both had pasta - one with rabbit and one with squid and foccatia as a starter. Everything was simple and delicious. Staff very busy, but... More

We were walking on the promenade along the sea and decided to have a quick lunch at this place. The service was excellent. Each of us had the linguini shellfish, which was very good. After eight ice cream and cappuccino to finish. Good lunch

Visited here for dinner with a group of friends during our travels in Malta, and we were certainly not left disappointed. Staff were very accommodating as there was a large group of us. I had the Fresh Rib Eye Steak with Mushroom Sauce which was simply divine.

We were 3 there. The burger was really poor and the fries were bad. The price was high dor the quality of the food.

After our choice for coffee was closed we took a chance on Fresco's for lunch due to the view. Wait staff was smiling and friendly. We were quickly shown to a view seat and served efficiently. The waiter made some nice suggestions and the food and drinks were fantastic. Will definitely return!
