So glad we went in!

As always, we were wandering unable to decide from the abundance of great looking places that were either nearly full or empty. Needless to say, the empty ones are probably empty for a reason so we gave them a miss also. Couldn't get into the restaurant we originally set out for so ended up looking... read more

Good menu, quality seafood and pasta dishes. Great wine selection and reasonable especially the Maltese wines. Service is generally excellent but there are times when you wished they had and extra pair of hands

We enjoyed 3 nights consecutively at this restaurant, the waiter is so friendly (Boris I think the young mans name was). We had planned to take a photo of the meal, my husband and I on our last day, shared a beautiful Red Snapper grilled, it looked so good, the photo never got taken, we just got stuck in. We... More

Delicious Maltese food, the chicken and rabbit dishes are particularly good, excellent service, and you get little extras like garlic bruschettas at the start and lemon liqueur at the end for no extra charge :)

I enjoyed the octopus stew- a very welcome rich and hearty meal- respite from the constant bombardment of 'pizza pasta grill' restaurants around the area. The free starters also wet our appetite favourably!

Been traveling through Europe for 3 weeks and my husband and I both agreed this was the best meal we've had in that time. All the favourable reviews on TA for Mama's are spot on - although we dined here without having read any of them and just happened to be passing. Do yourself a favour, go here and give... More

We enjoyed our meal here more than any other in the St Julian's area. This is a small unpretentious restaurant with a lot of local dishes reasonably priced. We ordered the local Sauvignon Blanc and were soon brought an Amuse Bouche. (Local sausage, bruchetta, olives etc). It may cater a lot to tourists, but the whole atmosphere is more caring... More

Came here after reading the many reviews of this place online. Wasn't disappointed. They start you off with a tomato, cheese, sausage and pate plate, on the house. Their half bottles of wine are reasonably priced at about 8-10 euros. Wife and I shared the stuffed tomatoes with cheese and porcini mushrooms, as well as a bowl of mussels in... More

We ate here twice on a week's holiday as the first night we were blown away by the food and value, and the second visit did not disappoint! Complimentary bruschetta, Maltese sausage and hummus-like dip with crackers to start means no need for a starter but we did not realise this first visit and we almost needed to be rolled... More
