Tax Xiha Restaurant, Blue Grotto

by Susanne Herold
(Malta)

Tax Xiha- a family run restaurant!

Highly recommendable if you like fresh fish - from the sea straight to the kitchen! The restaurant offers a large roof garden with an amazing view to the small island of Filfla.

Talk to Dorothe and make sure that you book a table if you intend to visit on a weekend! Enjoy it!

Thanks Susanne. I haven't tried this restaurant but it is now on my restaurant to-do-list. And I'll let Dorothe know you recommended it.

Worst Food Ever NEW
by: Frawla

The view is amazing, but other than that the place can close down. Very limited selection of food and wine and the service is terrible despite having only 5 patrons in all. The "fresh" tuna we ordered was far from fresh and have been overcooked. The side dish which consisted of raw vegetables has been prepared way before and we didn't dare taste it as it had a slimy film. Would not recommend it to anyone.

Unacceptable!!!!!!! NEW
by: Wilfred Spiteri

Worst experience ever at a restaurant. We were literally begging for service. Food was crap and a vat receipt was not given. To top it all when an attempt was done to complain, the waitress (wearing jeans and a tummy show off top) shouted to the chef to wait for her because someone was harrassing her!

not tasty food, not professional waiters, hell of a noise, place not so clean

Freshest fish cooked simply but superbly
by: M Mathieson

This restaurant is a little gem and sadly being underused. The ground and first floor are never used and you may walk past thinking there is no-one in there.

It is a treat just to see inside the lovely old building and hear about it's history. But the shaded roof terrace with it's superb views is always full, many of the diners are local and know how good the fish is.

Just go for the catch of the day recommended and you will not be disappointed. The chef is so proud of his food and the owners are delighfully friendly and welcoming.

Thanks for your input on the Tax Xiha Restaurant. We still haven't been to this restaurant but we will certainly make it a priority to do in the next couple of weeks.
