Fabulous location overlooking spinola bay,you can choose to dine inside or outside. The menu is very creative, making good use of local foods, rabbit a maltese dish is served,but there is also a wide varietyof pasta, pizza,fish and meat to choose from. We chose as starters,whitebait fritters,and cauliflower fritters. Both were delicious,not a fried fritter batter as you would expect,... More

Doesn't have quite a good outdoor seating area as others nearby, but this place is one of the very, very few restaraunts in the high-traffic tourist areas that has real Maltese cuisine. I wish they had more variety of Maltese dishes but what they do have is well crafted and high-end examples of tradition on the island. The kind of... More

This is the 2nd time I have been to Gululu..unfortunately the 1st did not turn out as pleasant as the second. We gave Gululu another try and I don't regret it for a single bit. All our food was amazingly cooked well and very tasty. Service was super. Keep up the good work. Will be back soon.

Visited here by chance on a Friday evening and were especially impressed with the service from the team on what was a very busy evening. In particular the young waitress with the short trendy red hair (sorry we didn't get your name!) who was very calming and professional when all around was potentially chaotic! Food was fine - the restaurant... More

We visited based on recommendations I read in books and on the internet. Staff were very welcoming. The antipasti was delicious. The staff were accommodating when I wanted to read the ingredients on the past (daughters allergy) and accommodated my request for plain pasta for the girls. My husband and I were disappointed with our mains- I had white fish... More

Great restaurant with great food. The service was excellent and had a good location. As food we had the pizza, which is nearly identical to the local maltese ftira. I would definitely recommend it to to everyone (especially tourists) who loves the local food.

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our taxi driver. Couldn't get in on the first night we went, so booked for the subsequent night. Really friendly service, efficient and organised. Can't understand the reviewer who said everyone was being persuaded to have the local fish option - we certainly weren't. Had the Maltese dips to start - yummy.... More

Visted during the first week of April 2014 Gululu’s is found in the busy heart of St Julian’s, overlooking the Spinola harbour, situated not far from our Juliani hotel, which is surrounded by many competing restaurants. Although this was a mid-week (evening), the place was very busy; we went inside as it was a bit cool out on the terrace,... More

Went there for a drink at lunchtime....booked table for dinner following night (Friday - very lucky to get in - wouldn't attempt it at such short notice in high season as we just about managed to get a table due to fully booked). Sat outside for lunchtime drinks - great view of Spinola Bay, St. Julian's. Lovely place to chill... More
