Damon A, we had the same experience, same evening. Very good food was let down by a sloppy and unprofessional waiter. He pretended he could remember everything and wrote nothing down. Then forgot to bring bread with starter, and then again had to be reminded that we had ordered wine. On top of that we did not feel valued as... More

I was thinking about writing an email to the restaurant but I thought this would be a better forum for communicating the experience that I had just an hour ago. I had brought 3 guests of mine from Canada to Gululu because I raved how good the food was since I had the pleasure of dining here two years ago... More

After looking at the reviews on here we decided to try Gululu as we could literally see it from our hotel room. It was a wet and windy night and a last minute decision but despite being fully booked they fitted us in. We ate from the specials menu featuring broad beans of all things! We had the rigatoni with... More

Delicious food, well served in a magical setting in Spinola Bay. The bay was lit up and we were right by the water. It made the wonderful Mediterranean cuisine even more special for our family get together. Highly recommend.

Evening meal for a couple. Friendly staff, laid back environment, not pretentious. Menu with good selection of meals (not too many which I usually like better as it means food is served fresh). Reasonable prices for wines and dishes. Attentive staff, no problems with a bit out of ordinary requests for meal options. All in all, a nice place, relaxed,... More

Menu says rabbit cooked in wine. Did not taste wine. Sauce probably made from 'Bisto' which means a little bit salty. Baked potatoes slightly salty too. Otherwise rabbit meat good, helping fair amount, baked vegetables good.

We came here on a recommendation, so pleased we did. Inside it was very busy but Neville showed us to an outside table near a heater. Toasty! Starters arrived promptly, we ordered the Maltese Sausage, and the little meatballs. Very tasty. The mains was fantastic. I had the Fenek Stuffat which is rabbit, my brother had the rigatoni. Surprised there... More
