Last week had a foreign guest for dinner. When we asked him what he wanted to eat, he replied that he wanted to taste something Maltese. We went to Gululu as we know they serve Maltese specialities. We started off with Kusksu with broad beans which are now in season and plentiful. Must say that dish was pretty tasteless and... More

Stopped off here for a wander at art Juliens and saw a sign promising "voted best food"... It wasn't a lie. We had the dips which were sensational (especially the olive and garlic one) and came with bread and small biscuits (like Savoys) and the Maltese sausage which was very light. This was enough for 3 people... Service was good,... More

We came across Gululu by chance for lunch as we were passing through St Julian's. We got a great shady seat overlooking the waterfront. I had pasta and salad with a lovely glass of rose wine. Staff were efficient and friendly on a busy day, the food was good and the view was good. What's not to like?

I recently had a meal in this restaurant. The place was very busy and the staff very pleasant. I opted for the lamb shank, which was absolutely divine. I really enjoyed the dish and found it very good value. You may need to book in advance but certainly well worth a visit.

Ftira is a famous maltese food you have to try. Is look like an italian focaccia but more tasty and full of frash ingredients!

though to be fair, the rest of Malta left something to be desired in the service department. Gululu really was very good though, definately the best I experienced!

Can only describe this restaurant as wonderful. The location, food, service and standards are great. The food is very traditional Maltese but at a restaurant standard, highly recommended.

Excellent for lunch, the food was large portion size so don't over order, the wine and beer was great value for money. Atmosphere and service great, lunch service can get busy so get there early lots of locals eat here so it will fill up very quickly, great view,great food and good service.

Food was OK - Ftira (Maltese pizza) was best. When we finally got a table (and an excellent table at that), the service was friendly, helpful and attentive.
