My father picked this location for my 18th Birthday in (Feb 2013) dinner with friends with a set price of 6 euros for pizza and drink, before the management changed. The place has been refurbished and decorated beautifully in my opinion. The only thing is on my second visit which was at the end of August with my family we... More

A must visit if you are looking for gluten free, we didn't realise it was until we were sat down - you wouldn't be able to tell that anything is different about the food which is very good - especially for fish! As we found quite often in Malta, there is far too much on the plate!! We had a... More

The Boathouse restaurant is simply the first and only restaurant in Malta which is exclusively Gluten Free. Yes, all dishes are gluten free, from bread, to pasta, pizza, the main courses and sweets. i.e. Heaven on earth for coeliacs! The staff is very friendly and the chef (who is Sicilian) is very knowledgable about gluten free food. For the very... More

Surprised to see so many excellent comments, maybe it was a bad day, but I doubt it!. Pizza 'looked' nice but the pasta seemed like a truck had just ran over it, no taste at all. . The bill was presented hand written on a scruffy small piece of paper, VAT depart pls note!!!...i dont usually write any comments here... More

Great and very friendly staff. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice, where one can stay inside or outside. We were given gluten free bread at the beginning. The homemade ice-cream is really good too and all is at good value for money. We had the seafood pasta which was divine. Would definitely go again.

This is a true Gluten free and lactose free restaurant in Malta. If you have any food intolerance, there is no reason for depriving yourself of a good pasta or pizza dish. This restaurant only serves self made pasta and pizza dough to ensure strict non contamination with any gluten. Moreover the pasta dishes are very tasty. Location is unique... More
