We might be by the sea, but good fish and chips in Malta isn’t always that easy to find.
We love stuffing our faces with perfectly-battered cod served with big ass chips, and here’s our list of places we like for traditional style fish and chips.
1. Sea Salt, Sliema
This new joint is all about fish and seafood. Their traditional fish & chips involves an exceptionally fresh cod (fried with homemade batter) served with homemade chips.
2. The Mad Hatter, Marsaskala
You’d be mad not to try the fish & chips that this joint is serving; it’s served every day as a special for €8!
3. Brighton Take Away, Marsaskala
The classic fish & chips at Brighton is their speciality and we can see why. Clearly, the southern town has a lot to offer when it comes to delicious fish and chips.
4. Ocean Basket, Qawra
Ocean Basket does a more than a decent fish & chips dish… and it’ll only set you back €7.
5. Seashell Restaurant, Buġibba
This unexpecting hole in the wall does excellent fish and chips that’s popular with the Brits as well as the locals.
6. The Dubliner, St. Julian’s
The perfectly-battered cod at this Irish pub is served with chips and a homemade guacamole.
7. Reflections, Mellieħa
Reflections offer ale-battered fish fillets served with chips and mushy peas. If you’re extra hungry, you can order the double portion. We won’t judge.
8. The Londoner Pub, Kalkara
Not only do we love The Londoner’s roasts, we’re also into the fish & chips served at this Brit style pub. The cod is hand-battered with stout!
9. The Scotsman Pub, St Julian’s
The fish & chips at The Scotsman always gets rave reviews and we’re definitely giving it the thumbs up.
10. Ocean Bar, Mellieħa
Head over to Ocean Bar for a really generous serving of fish & chips, where the cod is practically as big as your head.
11. Bordas Cafe Bar & Grill, Birżebbuġa
12. The Ordnance Pub, Valletta
An English pub offering traditional and modern food at very affordable prices. They do a more than decent fish n chip plate.
13. Fins & Gills, St Paul’s Bay
This joint’s fish n chips offering is applauded by many locals and expats!
