We ate here one evening. We got lucky to be among the first and to be seated on the small balcony overlooking St. Julians bay. The menu is obviously Maltese. We tried the ftira and the rabbit with pasta. Both excellent. The service was very good and the staff answered our questions concerning the different dishes. The prices are quite... More

We visited here after reading numerous favourable reviews including a good write-up in Air Malta's magazine. Unfortunately my family all left feeling somewhat disappointed with the whole experience. It was very busy when we arrived and had we to wait though in fairness, we had not made a booking and the cheerful waiter found us a table upstairs within ten... More

Large party of 16 easily accommodated, unfortunately inside due to our late booking but not a problem as the large open doors allowed air to circulate and a lovely view of Spinola Bay. The selection of starters to share we're very tasty and a good introduction to Maltese food. The mains were equally good and varied everyone in the party... More

By all accounts this restaurant had received many good reviews, however our experience was very disappointing. When we sat down first I felt our waiter was in a hurry to have us order and didnt really want to take the time to answer questions we had about the food on menu. I didnt fully understand what certain dishes were and... More

As a single traveler, sometimes restaurants can be quite funny about sitting you in a prominent position. Not this one, sat right on the waterfront. Service was great, waitress was very friendly and gave me some useful advise when I couldn't decide what to eat. Eventually I chose the Spaghetti Fenek which was absolutely delicious. Words can not describe how... More

Visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch after good recommendations from friends. Service started well and the staff were very obliging and attentive. Ordered our food and the starters arrived pretty quick, we had the meatballs, tuna cakes and a Maltese ftira. All very tasty and good, especially the ftira! A short while later the mains arrived. I find normally that... More

Very nice restaurant. Even the Maltese people recommend to go there... Centrally located at the waterfront. Not too cheap food but affordable. Very friendly staff.

We had a great meal at Gululu's. We had a table outside overlooking the water which was beautiful. the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and very authentic. I would recommend the rabbit belly as this was particularly good. this restaurant is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

The food experience was good, not excellent. All was fresh. The service was ok but I cannot recommend this place for a nice holiday experience, just too standard, quite expensive for what it is and without a personal touch.
