If you are looking from local Malta food, fish, octopus, Portopalo is a must. Salt Seabass is the speciality of the house. Wines are at moderate prices. Service is very efficient.

Very good food at reasonable prices for the area. Friendly staff trying to accommodate all our wishes. However, the place is tinny, which made it extremely noisy. Nevertheless, it is worth a visit.

Came upon this restaurant by chance. The food was good. From the starter of tomato foccacia bread to the main course. Both my friends had spaghetti carbonara which they said was second to none. Would certainly visit again. Friendly staff

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I have been having a look at some of your reviews about the Portopalo Restaurant and lot of people have been commenting on the outdoor area is lovely as it's not as manic as some of the other places. My question is, as I am in a wheelchair is there any disabled friendly WC available without steps, any help would be warmly received.
