A great restaurant, right on Spinola Bay. Grab a table outside for a wonderful view of the water and the colorful boats. The food is delicious. I highly recommend their octopus salad (Insalata tal-Qarnit) and their lemon sorbet, which is the best I’ve had in all my travels through Europe. Their pasta with rabbit sauce was wonderful as well.

Invited my parents and parents of my partner, for a Sunday lunch to celebrate 2 of their birthdays, and must say we were all extremely satisfied by the efficient service and food. Upon arrival we were shown to our table which was as we requested, outdoors. I recommend booking outdoors, since it's just by the waters edge in st Julian's... More

In four trips to Malta this was our first visit here and we enjoyed it. We sat downstairs on the waterfront after securing an early table without a reservation. For location alone it's a top spot. It was a busy night and the service kept up. For the first time in my life I tried rabbit, one of their specials... More

It was recommended to me by my hotel staff to go to this restaurant for a good Malta meal. It is beside a couple of other restaurants. The staff, food and location were great. I had the goat cheese with peppercorn as a start and it was perfect. The daily catch of sea bass hit the spot. Check this place... More

Very nice view from the balcony, food was really tasty and portions were very generous. Service was smiley and helpful. When we arrived it was full so we had to wait for 5-10 mins for a table to empty.

I went with some old school friends to this delightful place overlooking Spinola Bay. I was blown away at how good the food was. A selection of Maltese starters, like rabbit and Maltese sausage, whitebait, cheeses, pepperonata were delicious. My main of Bragioli (beef olives done the Maltese way) was fantastic. The sweets are local and gorgeous. Service was friendly... More

Chanced upon the restaurant whilst out walking and checking out places to eat. They were very accommodating in terms of organising a table (restaurant was very busy). Food was excellent - rustic Maltese. People were waiting for tables the whole time we were seated. Service friendly and efficient and food reasonably priced.

Spinola Bay is full of restaurants. We had been here around the days when our countries football team grew up to worlds champions. Nearby the restaurant there was a public fan place, but within the place of Gululu is was absolutely unimpressed by these things. We have been here two times, having fresh fish dishes beside of local foods. Everything... More

Local friends told us about this restaurant so we tried it out. We just got a table by chance so I would recommend to book a table in advance. We were lucky enough to get a front row table near the water. The menu is exciting - mainly Maltese dishes. Hard to choose which one to take! :-) If you... More
