not worth the money and food is not that good. risotto wasn't cooked enough and pasta was very simple and tasted like supermarket pasta- the cheap kind.

Great place for an outdoor drink and to overlook Balutta Bay. Good place to start out your evening or for a fancy dinner.

As I arrived without reservation at 9 pm on a weekday night, I was asked to wait at the outdoor bar while my table was prepared - an opportunity to sample some of their delicious cocktails ( I can recommend the raspberry and basil cosmo). After a short wait i was escorted to my table on the lovely outdoor terrace,... More

It’s best to make a reservation and ask for a table on the front of the balcony because than you can enjoy marvelous food and spectacular views on the bay. The menu shows some nice surprises and offers several plates you can share. The best way to get a taste of everything. The food tasted fantastic and so did the... More

Good location and good service. We paid high prices at other restaurants but we loved the food and felt it was worth it. We couldn't say the same for here. The food was ok but not amazing. It was overpriced.

We had a meal at The Villa Brasserie whilst staying at Le Meridien, the food was delicious and I had the most tastiest desert here ever! It was based on an After Eight and I would highly recommend it. The staff were attentive and friendly. Slightly pricey but worth it!

We had an absolutely superb experience. The food, service and atmosphere. Everything was great. As a starter we had the most fantastic water-melon gazpacho that we still talk about.

I recently visited The Villa for the first time and immediately loved it on arrival. A gorgeous outdoor terrace overlooking Balluta Bay, by far the best view in St Julians. Unfortunately, the food didn't reach the same standard. One member of our party ordered the pizza which was very tasty and definitely the best bet if you're looking for some... More

We were here to celebrate a 'special' birthday, and were not disappointed. Despite it being pretty busy (including a large group who were also celebrating a birthday (?)) service was friendly and prompt, and the food excellent. Though we were outside we did not have any views as such but the tables are fairly well spaced and the general atmosphere... More
