Wonderful views

We visited Gillieru again especially for the beautiful views. There is a definite feeling of space as tables are not crowded together. We had amazing views of the beautiful sunset and enjoyed watching the boats in the bay. We always enjoy the Gillieru prawns with rice and the seafood platter is a... read more

I used to visit St. Pauls Bay every summer when I was a kid. My grandparents had an apartment over the road from the Gillieru and I often wondered what it would be like to dine there? On Friday 25th July 2015 (28 years since I was last in St. Pauls Bay) I took my wife and children here for... More

The restaurant was largely empty both inside and outside, but we were still left waiting some time, before eventually we had to ask for someone to come and take our order. The service, when it arrived, was polite and professional. For a starter we shared octopus, which was chewy and overly tasteless, to follow we each had king prawns and... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to visit based on the reviews. Well, we were not disappointed! The food was great tasting and good value, the staff were attentive and efficient. We sat out on the terrace overlooking St Paul's Bay and it was a magical experience watching the sun go down over St Paul's Island. We... More

This is a spacious and smart restaurant right on the bay. It's famous for it's fish but I had the garlic mushrooms to start – very rich with cream and brandy in the sauce but so tasty followed by the vegetarian tagliatelle – delicious fresh pasta, really great. With a couple of glasses of wine it came to €31. God value when... More

Based on the previous reviews on Tripadvisor, I booked a sea view table. The whole point for me for booking this restaurant was the fact that we would be outside, beside the sea. The tables outside have garden chairs around them, so the dining table was higher, I am 5ft in height so did not find the experience comfortable. The... More
