So the staff were friendly, the view is on a small harbor, really nice. The food is just ok, in my opinion. We spent the last 2 weeks in Italy/Sicily, and this was our first run in with Maltese food, lots of rabbit and other game on the menu, we had a pasta dish and a dish that resembled pizza.......

For an authentic taste of Maltese food then visit Gululu Restuarant in St Julian's Bay, Malta. They have a great choice to choose from but beware, at the height of the tourist season you need to reserve a table otherwise you'll miss out

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at this restaurant. The food was excellent and the bill was very reasonable. They were able to accommodate my youngest daughter's fussy food choice with a simple version of the traditional pizza and we enjoyed fabulous food. The lamb pasta was amazing - so tasty! Service was prompt and friendly and my little girl enjoyed... More

We were very lucky to have got in here on our first night without booking- we saw lots of people disappointed as there were no spare tables. Rather lovely setting looking out over the harbour. Friendly efficient attentive but not overbearing staff. Local wines were the most reasonably priced of all the restaurants we ate at during the week and... More

We were drawn to Gululu due yo the sign saying that it was the best Maltese restaurant, and it didn't disappoint. The food was incredible. I would highly recommend the rabbit ravioli, as it's an unusual but delicious local dish. The prices were very reasonable and the wine list was good. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food... More

By far the best local food restaurant in the whole Malta, beautiful location, super local food, fair prices and the staff is young and very kind. It's a MUST to visit

We enjoyed our two course meal at this harbour side restaurant. The previous night it was full so we booked for the following evening with a table right at the front overlooking the bay. Enjoyed our two courses and would have ordered a dessert but for the fact that the waitress left us for half an hour before returning to... More
