We were very disappointed as had high hopes of this place. Ordered swordfish, did not mind the wait to be served but though the plates looked great, the fish was dry and was obviously frozen, not fresh. Some in our party didn't even finish their plate. The waiters were all untrained foreign youths who were nice but far from efficient... More

We went there on a Saturday, did a reservation beforehand. The table was situated near the window and we could see the view of St Julians and the prominent Hotels. We were up for a pizza however we were informed that pizzas were not available. I could see that at the beach club below, pizza was served. At least they... More

Don't go there!!!! I've been there twice. The first time I was very pleased with the place, the service and food, but the second time it was a disaster. I ordered a fillet steak well done and instead of having a nice good fillet, my fillet was cut in thin slices (not butterflied as many do it), and I couldn't... More

Ive been here on 2 separate occasions and was disappointed twice. The first was for a plate of spaghetti ai frutti di mare; seafood seemed to be straight out the freezer. The most recent occasion was with a group of about 8 people for a pizza. The food was passable but very ordinary. What really disappointed was the quality of... More

Amazing location such a shame the food and service are terrible, first they forgot our drinks, food took ages to come and our wraps were cold. They really need to teach their waiters to go with customers, they were very rude and impolite. For sure will never go again.

Overall, a precious day off wasted. The first member of staff you meet at the beach club struggles with English - which is not necessarily his fault, but it leads to many misunderstandings. Ordinary exchanges like "Hello, I'd like to book a table for lunch" are received with undisguised boredom. Some of the sun shades are not properly secured or... More

My uncle planned a family dinner at Exiles and it was a great experience. The table was already loaded with all sorts of Maltese appetizers/finger foods: fava bean dip, fresh tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, sheep cheese, etc. The steak was ok, but the shared fish dinner was amazing - platters of seafood just kept coming! Shrimp, mussels, clams, and 2 kinds... More

We liked it because it's right by the coast and served excellent food. They also do cocktails! Make sure you go down the steps to the open air section. Highly recommended.

Ok so my partner and enter the place. Nobody bothers to greet us. Table is still full of the rubbish previous patrons.. including cash on d table. We are not acknowledged for a good 15 mins. I finally get up and ask for some service. We are not asked for drinks 10 mins later. We get the menus. Whilst the... More
