The Maltese rabbit and the pork cheek as well as the lamb shank were greatly enjoyed as was the rabbit ravioli. Only the calamari dish was a little disappointing.

Arriving in Malta on Valentines day without a reservation for dinner was a problem I had not anticipated. The manager very kindly allowed us to use the facilities" whilst telling us they were fully booked. I guess because we looked so forlorn he managed to squeeze us in on a very large 2 person table. The food,service,price and ambience were... More

Ate here twice (once because we were too tired after a day trip to think). Food is great - portions are huge so beware! Feels like authentic Maltese food. Comfortable restaurant (though was a bit chilly on one of the nights). Excellent value for money!

I was recommended to go to Gululu by someone I came across on my travels. On our second night, my partner and I made a booking and walked down by the water to the restaurant. We sat down and ordered some wine and sat on the balcony overlooking the peaceful views. Unfortunately that night, there was a blackout on the... More

Not that I was positively terrified by maltese cuisine (you can easely find truly italian and arabian sound in it), but this one is a lovely place in a small busy bay, serving really local food (the point is that Maltese mainly are mad about italian food - seems that 80% restaurants serve pasta-pizza) - we tried soups (misspelt as...

Gululu offers an exciting variety of Maltese dishes, all set in a lovely place by the sea. Great, friendly and efficient service.

We had been recommended to try this Maltese restaurant and were not disappointed. We had not reserved, but got the impression it would be the best idea, especially in summer or at the weekend as it was buzzing. It has good food, pleasant service and lots of atmosphere. We only sat inside as it was a cool windy evening, but... More

We went to this restaurant for a late lunch and were not disappointed. Service was good and the food and wine lovely. Just the ticket on a sunny afternoon.
