The once superbly located and renowned restaurant who topped all as a fish restaurant need to think how to revive the place and present more inspirational food. It's a pity as it has great potential. Resting on ones laurels doesn't help especially when so many restaurants go to great measures to patronise new clients. The food was good but without... More

The Gillieru Fish Restaurant shares its name with the hotel next door and is leased from the hotel, there the similarity ends. We had three dinners there and all were excellent. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive and the setting perfect, sitting outside watching the fishing boats coming in. Helpings were generous and mouth wateringly tasty. We normally eat at... More

This is one of Malta oldest restaurants with a unique location..it has degraded from what it used to be, Still acceptable, but nothing t write home about. So if in the area worth giving a try. The fish I had was fresh, but noticed too much stuff coming out of a freezer on the plates of adjoining tables

Stopping through for a late large lunch upon the recommendation of our taxi driver, we were pleasantly surprised. The owner helped take personal care of us with aristocratic English. My friends who had tagliatelle starters declared them to be quite good, and the ravoli had "amazingly fresh sauce" according to another. The owner recommended local bottles of wine which paired...

We were invited for dinner in this nicely located and well-known restaurant overlooking St. Paul's Bay. I enjoyed the lovely seafood, the wines, and the amicable atmosphere.

The restaurant at the sea with perfect view at St.Paul's Bay. Sea-food is quite tasty, fish and other dishes recommendable. Prices a little higher than average. Atmosphere nice, service perfect.

We booked here as there were some good reviews on tripadvisor, some not so good, we took a chance and can't fault the place, meal, service at all. Beware! as mentioned, of the meal sizes, my wife had a Spaghetti Vongole starter only and it was, for a starter, huge! I had Steak Dianne which was wonderful! I asked for... More

We arrived at this restaurant, which was recommended in our guide book 10 mins after they had finished serving in the main restaurant. There were still people in the restaurant but they were not going to let us in. Finally they offered to show us the bar menu and we chose the Maltese platter. We had had this dish at... More

This was a average place for dinner. Be aware that some of the starters are full meals. Choosing the menu of the day I got a baked lasagna for starter, and it was a full dinner sized portion. The fish I had was really good. Desert - a very heavy cake. Just to much of everything here.
