“Authentic British Chippy”
Review of Star Fish Bar

Star Fish Bar
Ranked #31 of 60 Restaurants in Il Gzira
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 September 2015

A bright and airy fish and chip shop with limited seating mainly laid out as a bar/stool arrangement and limited seating available outside, adjacent to a busy road. The quality of the food varies dependent on the 'fryer'. A regular visitor, usually the quality is what you would expect from a chippy in the UK for better value. Unfortunately, on occasions, both the fish and the chips are overcooked. I have a healthy appetite and usually struggle to finish the generous portions. They tend to wait to give you your drinks until your food comes but a request for these straight away is never a problem. A word of warning - the pepper comes out of the shakers in masses. If the quality of food was more consistent I would have given a Very Good Rating. Nevertheless, the best chippy I have come across on my various European travels.

Had lunch. Had cod and plaice with chips along with onion rings and mushrooms.
1/2 bottle of donnafugata cost us €10! A rip off.
Fast food comes at a price nowadays.
Will not be back.

Had one cod, one haddock , 2 chips 1 mushy peas. The fish batter was nothing special infact I didn't enjoy it that much. The chips though was to die for! At least d menu has a quite a variety.

I chose cod and chips and was presented with a very generous portion that was delicious. It's more of a takeaway-type shop although it does have seating, but definitely will revisit!

As usual here in Malta it started off vey good and now portions have went down and the cooking has also, the fish was dry and was probably reheated not what you would expect at 6 pm.Service very poor with the staff talking instead of serving customers, I have recommended before but won't again an probably won't go back. I was told a few weeks ago that it had gone downhill but I had no complaints u til today.
