Fresco’s Café & Restaurant

Amazing food, fast service, "friendly staff" and "substantial portions".

Fresco’s restaurant enjoys a fantastic location on the seafront and right at the water’s edge, with a glass curtain surrounding the seating area, which can be opened at a moment’s notice. The 180° view is spectacular. To the left you can admire St Julian’s Bay with the open sea ahead, while to the right you can view the Sliema playground, garden and beaches. The décor is raw and natural – wood, glass and polished cement, while low background music, subtle lighting, chunky tables, coloured hanging lamps and shiny floors all combine to enhance the dining experience.
Fresco’s offers genuine food, large portions and value for money. This is not a fast food restaurant – everything is made in-house from scratch. Try the crispy whitebait, crunchy prawns and fried calamari, or mussels in cream with celery chunks, or succulent rabbit liver drenched in a balsamic sauce. Next, savour a risotto with chunks of salmon, avocado and mushrooms, or linguini with smoked duck, tarragon, asparagus, cream and duck crackling. Relish pan-fried gurbell or delicious beef tagliata (recommended rare) with grana shavings on a bed of rucola, followed by a mini dessert and washed down with an excellent wine.
