As good as allways

Every time i go to Malta i enjoy a visit to Paparazzi. On this occasion i was shocked to learn it had moved to manoel Island. I really enjoyed dining outside with a nice view across the water. The staff are very friendly and food is nice.

Went last night for pizza! Told by a sad looking waitress to sit wherever as she shrugged her shoulders! White wine arrived in a defrosted cooler! Asked for another one which was slightly colder but not by much! Food arrived! Pizza topping bordering on very cold! Had to ask for cutlery and napkins! By this point two waitresses were having...

The food was lovely and the portion size substantial. We shared a full rack of ribs for lunch which came with chips. The ribs were lovely and fell of the bone. Would definitely go back here especially for the view across the harbour.

Nice simple little place, staff were attentive but not too much so. We nipped in for lunch and cocktails.. The ribs were very good! I asked to customise one of the cocktails which they did willingly. A nice experience, and lovely view over the bay if you sit outside. Worth a visit!

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening and although the place was packed, the floor manager was helpful and efficient to give us a table. The service was excellent and the food great too. Recommended. Also, parking is not a problem.

On Saturday 16th May we celebrated our son's 2nd birthday and decided to dine at Paparazzi. The food is really great and even our son enjoyed the food.

We ate here during our recent trip to Malta. The restaurant is located just at the entrance to Manoel Island - so nice location on the waterfront. The restaurant was very busy and quite noisy. However, the service was fast and food good - we had a burger and a pasta dish - both very good.
