our ftira choice

My husband (originally from Malta) was wanting to try ftiras on this trip, & in researching menus, we decided on Gululu one day for lunch. They do have an excellent choice of them here, & that is all the food we can comment on. The ftiras (his was Lippina with tuna, olives, capers etc, & mine was... read more

I ate here alone on the 12th of February, in the evening. I was warmly welcome and I found the service prompt, attentive but not stressful. when I arrived was quite early and half of the restaurant was still empty. I decided to try the Maltese version of the pizza, I chose the one with tuna, capers and olives. It... More

Only stopped here on way back to my hotel, beer a little pricey but as mainly a restaurant to be expected, but beautiful location waterside with sun beating down and very friendly service...the latter combination was worth close to euro 4 for a local Cisk beer, which in most other places is more euro 3 or less..except Paceville where it...

We ate here twice in a week and both times it was delicious. Sit outside if you can - the view is lovely. Try the ftira pizzas - the North African was fantastic!

Unfortunately, I cannot find the bill that itemises the food I had; what I can remember is being well satisfied with the food, and remembering that the restaurant was well presented and the service was well up to standard. Although the venue is found a quiet street that appears less than welcoming, Gululu is well known by ex-pats and locals... More

We did not get to experience this establishment, which had been recommended to us by Maltese friends, since we were totally ignored by the waiter. I am is a size that is somewhat difficult to miss but the waiter was intent on attending to others who had arrived some twenty minutes after ourselves. We had fetched the menus ourselves but...
