On our first night in Marsalforn the owner was trying hard to get us to go in and we declined. On our last night we decided to give it a go. The building is lovely and the view across the bay is picturesque so as a restaurant it has a lot of potential. The service however leaves much to be desired. We ordered our starter and main and were waiting for at least an hour for the starter to come up. When we queried the wait we were told that there had been a mix up in the kitchen and the wrong starter had been prepared so the kitchen started from scratch. While this was going on another couple who had arrived after us received their mains just before our starters came up. One of ours was wrong so the order was sent back down to the kitchen a third time. By the time the correct starters had come the other couple had given up in disgust with their meals and left. We had a pretty unappetizing starter each and then decided to give up and go somewhere where we knew the food would be better quality. When we said this to someone working there she told us that she was not surprised and was there to deal with their temperamental chef. We explained to the only waitress (very sweet) that we were leaving and the owner then took it out on her. She has only been working there for a couple of weeks and has a much better grasp of what is going on there than he does in my opinion, as we were paying he then her to close the restaurant for the night and make sure that nobody else came in - the best decision he'd made all night in my opinion.
