Thoroughly enjoyable

En route to Gozo, we stopped off in St. Paul's Bay for lunch. Still early in the season, there weren't many people about but the setting was very pleasant, overlooking the bay. The service was friendly and amusing and the food (sort of seafood ravioli) very good. We didn't have a full meal but... read 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

The closest to dining at sea however firmly on land boasting open bay and seaviews up to St.Paul's Island, from the open or closed dining areas, retro decor same as I remember it 40 years ago but still full of charm and character, excellent food served to the same high standard as I have always known it. Truly a Golden... More

This restaurant boasts a great location with unobstructed views of the sea and St Paul's islands. The restaurant itself is clean and looks to be well cared for. The place gives the feeling that it had been a very good restaurant in the past but unfortunately it got stuck in time and is not so good anymore. Service although mostly... More

Amazing Hotel, staff couldn't do anymore for us. Nothing was too much. Gorgeous breakfast with amazing views. Lovely pool and plenty of sun loungers. Everything is within walking distance and ALL tours for the island & Sicily can be booked from reception. Super Super Time. Would go back tomorrow!

With one of the best locations in the North, it's a pity that neither the service or the food can match the view. Lazy service and mediocre quality of the food was not what we expected. Reason to ask question about the freshness of some of the things that were brought to the table. Also find the menu a bit... More

Every time I have overseas guests visit I take them here. Best octopus stew on the island, amazing seafood and a perfect view. The prices are very reasonable and the service is friendly and relaxed. Also a great lunch venue for two. If Tarragon is the dinner spot in St Paul's Bay then Gillieru is the lunch spot. Oh, and... More

One of the best restaurants in Bugibba and Saint Paul's Bay. The fish is always fresh and the view is awesome. If I'll come back to Malta, I'm going to have another good meal here for sure.
