Place was deserted, and the waitress had the cheek to tell us it was a busy night and service was slow. The waiter that took our order didn't know what he was doing, completely clueless! No wine served after ordering 15mins before. We then proceeded to look on trip advisor for some reviews on the Black Pearl and all negative... More

Paid a lot of money for an open BAR party including finger foods and pasta buffet... What we had in return, was a catastrophic situation. A 3hr open bar, having almost absolute nothing available for the guest. But mostly, the Jack Daniels has run out of stock after 1 hr. The guest ended up drinking soft drinks and some of... More

This was my first time visiting this restaurant (which was a total waste of money!) ...Service was terrible: we had to ask two different waitresses to take our order; menu is different to what is on their website, we were provided with only a 3 page menu compared to the online menu. When politely asked, the waitress said that the... More

We visited this restaurant as an alternative to some of the restaurants we had been in. Having been on a trip to Sliema, we decided to eat here, much to our regret. This is sad- there is a great history to this dry-docked boat. The waitress/waiter were nice, but not really sure what is going on. Like other reviewers, we... More

He cooked platters mix of mainly seafood... More

Visited the Blackpearl for the first time and I had high hopes but all failed, The waiter said that they have only 8 menus so we have to wait a bit to order our food. The food wasn't bad but was nothing special.

Friends of mine decided to marry at the Black Pearl and my daughter and I were invited as witnesses - it was a very small event, just the four of us. The staff were very helpful in making the necessary preparations, which went very quickly. The registrar arrived and we were able to immediately begin the ceremony. After the registrar... More

We visited the Black Pearl with my In Laws who recommended the restaurant we were not disappointed. Dario and his team were attentive but not intrusive. We left Dario to suggest each course which was outstanding the flavours and mixes of each course perfect. Thanks again to Dario and his Team for a fab night.
