A popular little restaurant on the harbour edge, thankfully we booked. Not an extensive menu but enough. There was a lot of food on the plate and my rabbit stew was very good. My husband ate fish which was fresh and cooked to perfection. We had meatballs for starters which was ok but glad we tried them.

I barely post any rave reviews unless the place really deserves it. This is one of them. We went on a Monday and boy am I glad that we did a reservation? The place was totally packed!! We had a beautiful table on the front row over looking the picturesque view of Spinola by night. It was really romantic. The... More

Some really good local cuisine and wine (white seems much better than the local reds), definitely worth checking out.

Went for the second time yesterday and just like the first time the food was brilliant ! I ordered pasta with horse meat and it was mouthwatering ! Not to mention the friendly staff that made the stay more worthy It is not a coincidence that Gululu is the number 1 specialized in Maltese cuisine ! A must go

Our first evening in Spinola Bay we chose Gululu along the port simply by walking by. The menu offered lots of choice and had some very unique Maltese cuisine. The server was very friendly and efficient. Our queries about the menu items were properly answered. We ordered 2 Maltese dishes - Rabbit and a Pork Pasta. Both came out piping... More

I am a seafood lover and have eaten it in many different countries.. this place out does them all. The octopus was as tender as butter. We travelled with a Maltese friend and she ordered the appetizers. To me they were great, to her they were authentic. My husband had the rabbit ( very tasty). Wait staff was typically Maltese...

This is a great place to eat with good views of the bay. Casual/rustic dining. Authentic Maltese Cuisine. Doesn't break the bank either. Recommended if you're after authenticity in a modern location. We ate lunch with our little girls & enjoyed it all. Girls had wild boar ragu & loved it.

I’m always keen to try something new, so headed for this beautifully located restaurant promising Maltese cuisine. It’s very easy to find and enjoys pretty much the perfect view from this part of the bay. I’d recommend eating outside, as inside seems quite cramped, especially upstairs. It was the first time I had tried the typical food of this island,... More
