Guze was an off-chance recommendation I got when asking two municipal guardsmen for a tip on where to eat for the last dinner of our honeymoon. And the tip paid off!!! Homely old-style basement-like setting, lit candles, brilliant service and exquisite food! At affordable prices (coming from Sweden, perhaps on the pricey side on Malta but WELL worth it. =)....

I love this place. They have got everything down to a tee. The service and food is exceptional and amazing value the money. I love how they bring appetisers before the meal and I love the setting of the place; in a 16th century building which is cosy and has so much charm. I highly recommend this place.

Good quality food and service and a reasonable price but we visited in the hottest time possible and the air con had a hard time coping. The place is very small so booking is essential. Their web site booking works fine.

Went recently and the food was delicious but we had to wait quite a long time for the meal. The dessert was exceptionally good

The calamari is still AWESOME and the Riesling to match was equally excellent but...... Something has gone from Guze. Where before it oozed an old world charm which glossed over the faults with my main last time, the charm has gone. Replaced with what I imagine they assume is professionalism but which translates to almost robotic, charmless service. My main... More

What a venue, the decor, service and location in the old town is fantastic. But the food is simply OUTSTANDING in taste, appearance and choice, a very smart and trendy bistro indeed. We arrived in Malta airport at 21.00 hrs but had booked this restaurant in advance through their web site due to the reviews on Tripadvisor and also that... More

I cannot fault the superb meal we had a few days ago. Having read such great reviews we thought it'd be the first restaurant we dine at whilst in Malta. Needless to say, after day 3, no other restaurant in Malta has come close to the Guzé experience. The only reason I'm not giving this 5* is because the service... More

Found this place on tripadvisor and well worth it. just slightly off the tourist trail but conveniently on way to ferry dock in Valletta. Excellent service, excellent wine, excellent food. just a gem. And it is in a very cool old building with a cool bathroom too.

What a lovely restaurant. A fabulous old building in a quieter street just a two minute walk from the main square. It is a small restaurant so reservations are essential. We used the online booking system whilst still in the UK, which was ideal. Service was good with all the staff focused on making your visit as enjoyable as possible.... More

The place is what you would want from a quality dining house. Cosy atmosphere, clean, professional staff, carefully cured quality food. Owner is in the kitchen, Maltese but with international experience (an it shows). Reccomended! Beware of three points : Kitchen is small....allow 2 hrs to eat No outdoor area for dining Parking can be tricky
