Perfect setting with tables on the waterfront in St Julians and limited tables on the balconette with a view of the waterfront. Delicious Maltese food and wines. Gululu is traditional gem surrounded by not so traditional restaurants so you get the traditional food yet the ambience of St Julians. Service was a little behind point however we had one particul...

The service was non-existent. Once the food had brought to our table, no one came to ask if everything was ok or if we needed something else. I had some pasta with pork meat that was bland and boring. Two of our party did quite like what they ordered but the other two of us barely touched our meals. I... More

We came here for a late lunch which came to involve the classical soft Maltese cheese and some wine. The fish box outside didn't look fresh so we went for the pasta instead. Nothing special about it though. It's a nice place in the sun.

This place serves very nice authentic Maltese food at reasonable prices. Waitress was very helpful in recommending their specialties. It would be nice if they improve their dessert though.

Food was good, and the restaurant is in a good location. Portions aren't too big for what you pay. I had the fresh fish of the day and it was very good.
