This restaurant was superb. The staff were excellent and the quality of food was really top class. We had a mixture of rabbit, fish and pasta and everyone had nothing but the highest compliment for it. Prices were reasonable and the sea gushing up alongside our table was a joy to behold. Everyone was relaxed and everyone from various countries all over Europe and Asia were enjoying themselves.

We visited Pirate's Galley on 2 occasions whilst on holiday and were not disappointed. The food is very well cooked and presented, served by friendly staff who appear genuinely pleased to be of service. The menu is varied and reasonably priced with some very yummy dishes. Well worth a visit.

We came here after a long day of running errands. Looking for a nice small lunch, didn't realise quite how small that would be. I ordered Carbonara and my fiancée ordered Spaghetti Aglio E Olio Vongoli as starter portions. We waited around 20 mins to then be asked if we had ordered Bolognese or Carbonara. We replied Carbonara, to which the chef/waiter laughed that they had made Bolognese which was a huge portion then given to his father to eat. I then watched as he removed the muscles from my fiancée's pasta to one side and put the pasta back in the pan and proceed to split the pasta then between 2. Her pasta then arrived. Finally mine joined. We were shocked to see we both had enough of a portion for 3 mouthfulls which they tried to hide by adding muscles to 1 pasta and creme to another (creme wasn't listed on the menu which is why I ordered it). When enquiring as to why the portions were so ridiculously small, we were told it was 100g which seems impossible as 1. It was definitely not 100g as working in catering we know and 2. You can't weigh pre cooked pasta, we realised it was pre cooked when he reluctantly asked if we wanted more and then microwaved some more for us. No apologies were offered, we were just told that we were in the wrong. We will NOT be coming back here again and will NOT be recommending this place to anyone. No wonder it was dead!!!! #lessonlearned #eatwherethepeopleeat

We were staying in Victoria and visited Xlendi during the day and decided to go back one evening. This restaurant has a great setting down in the harbour and even better that they stay open even into November? Staff very friendly and food was lovely. Husband ordered Penne but got spaghetti but still tasted very nice.
