Had an evening here as have done many times before. Was disappointed this time with service seemed short staffed and food not as good. We did get a slight deduction off our bill though. A shame perhaps place has got too gig and lost something.

We were placed inside after a little wait for the table, but immediately told to order as soon as possible as the kitchen was about to close for 20 minutes. Feeling as though this was a little odd, we ordered our food and drinks straight away... yet we did not happen to receive them quite so promptly. I had to... More

It is maybe the only restaurant that offers Maltese food and a whole variety of it in a manner that is high quality cuisine. Too often restaurants offer Maltese food the way they feel tourists expect it whereas at Gululu it is as it should be.

This is a Maltese traditional restaurant and the food is divine. I recommend this to all tourist to taste the Maltese tradition food.One suggestion is to book a table as it`s always busy.

We saw this restaurant in tripadvisor and it ha good reviews so we decided to go. It was better than expected we ordered two sea bass and a lamb shank. The fish were perfectly cooked and fresh. The shank was tasty and tender. The only downside was the potatoes that were not cooked enough. The service was attentive and friendly.... More

I visited this restaurant during a recent holiday to Malta. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious, especially the fresh fish. The menu had a good selection to choose from and the local wine was very agreeable. We enjoyed it so much we returned for another visit on our last night before returning home.

A nice restaurant with a magnificient view to the spinola bay if you can have a table on the 1st floor. The service was great. Some of the waiters were a bit lost but the main one guided them. We had some starters, sausages and meat balls. It was great not excellent and there was NO presentation at all (big... More

Went here for daughters 30th birthday. Food was good, but had some excellent Maltese food elsewhere so didn't quite live up to their claim of "best Maltese food in Malta." Unfortunately service was unbelievably slow. Had to wait for waitress to come and take drinks order and then took food order shortly after but had to ask again 20 mins... More

Visited Gululu with Erasmus friends! Its amazing the view and the couisin we loved it. It was suggestion from Maltese friends and it really delivered! Service also was really good, the manager (i believe) Charlie helped us in choosing our dishes and was really helpful all through the night. Gululu is a must go place if you are in Malta!

We were recommended to visit Gululu as an authentic Maltese restaurant but we were disappointed - the atmosphere is that of a fast food restaurant (with slow service!) and we struggled to find things on the menu that sounded appetising. We were in Malta for a week and had left Gululu for our last night - we wished we'd returned... More
