Good food but staff too busy to care

We obviously wanted to visit the No1 restaurant in Malta- we made sure we booked a table, but when we visited we almost felt rushed as if the staff wanted us to move out ready for the next patrons. Lovely food, presented well, but the staff seemed to be resting on their laurels at being No 1 - they... read more

Another great find based on Trip Advisor; we ordered a mix of wonderful sounding dishes and the presentation and quality were superb. Five of us loved our dinner at Guze and we were able to share all of the dishes

We went to Guze to celebrate our anniversary. Even though we had informed them that this was a special occasion, no effort was made to make it special. Our table was next to the toilet. No complimentary welcome drink or digestive. Staff was very unfriendly and looked overwhelmed. One of them came to our table during our meal, sweating and... More

Joseph C, Owner at Guze Bistro, responded to this review

Many thanks for your review, We are extremely surprised why you expected complimentary freebies during your meal. Apologies for not making it a memorable experience. When temperatures reach 30 degrees with almost 95per cent humidity we tend to get slightly uncomfortable in performing our duties. Once again Happy Anniversary Guze Team More

Before our trip to Valletta I had to make sure to reserve a table at the Guze Bistro. Everything about this place was great. The setting was very warm and welcoming. We tried the black mussels to share as a starter together with the complimentary bread. It was very fresh and tasty. For mains we had to try the local... More

I would recommend this place to all visiting Valletta. Quite small so you need to book a table, but atmosphere is relaxing. My chicken liver pasta was perfect however my wifes calamari pasta was just a bit above average. I give this place the best rating though as I think she was just unlucky with that pasta.

Beginning with the warm welcome and continuing with great food, our first ( and surely not the last) visit to Guze was truly a pleasant experience. Everything wss fresh and presentation was really nice. We tried four different dishes and all of them were executed perfectly. The Stuffed Rabbit was so tender and the Pappardelle with Boar meat and truffle... More

It is so unfortunate that me and my mother only found this restaurant on the last day of our holiday, as it was easily the best place we have eaten in Malta... and for my mother the best meal she's ever eaten in her life!! The service was outstanding - literally couldn't have asked for anything more! Gluten free bread...no... More

We stayed in Malta for 5 days and ate in a number of good restaurants. I had booked Guze due to reading other reviews. I can easily say that Guze was the best meal that my wife and I had on our holidays. Amazing romantic little restaurant, great food and very friendly service.

we visited for dinner, it was pretty tasty but i felt sorry for the staff - extremely busy and running around sweating - probably need to hire some more people - i felt like standing up and helping them. plus very small space - our wine bucket could fit near the table and was moved to the bar

Beautiful imaginative food with attentive service. Nothing to dislike about a beautiful experience. The only downside was getting into the place which was down some very steep steps not so good for anyone with mobility problems.
