It's a very authentic restaurant and it's always consistent. Great rabbit and risotto, lovely little nibbles at the start and a nice wine list

Called here the other night without booking and staff fitted us in and the restaurant was very busy. Service was very good and friendly but the food was excellent the rabbit spaghetti was an unusual combination but fantastic. We both had the rib eye for mains and it was one of the best steaks we have ever had all washed... More

We were greeted really warmly when we arrived at Maltese Mama and we enjoyed a lovely meal. It was a shame to see the traditional Maltese restaurant quiet when the fast food places were busy but I would definitely recommend a visit to Maltese Mama for a real taste of Malta.

There are many good places to eat in St Julian's and this is a favourite of ours. Good local dishes, friendly attentive service and a good selection of half bottles of wine at great prices. A little gem.

We enjoyed our dinner here - my partner said his dinner (pork with pear and honey) was excellent, I had the fish platter which was good too but didn't surpass the beef olives I had on our first night in Malta. I am sure however that the beef olives/bragioli would have been excellent if I had ordered them here. We... More

This is a very cosy and friendly restaurant which has an extensive menu including some typical Maltese dishes. The food was OK but didn't live up to expectations.
