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

Under new management, recently refurbished The boathouse restaurant is now simply unique with excellent service. The staff is very friendly and the chef (who is sicilian) even came over to greet us and explain all about the gluten free food they are now offering. For the very first time since being diagnosed celiac, I was able to choose anything I... More

Been at this place many times before, as the location is simply unique, you can't have lunch or dinner closer to the sea than at this place. This week we went for the first time this year, and noticed some changes in the menu and the staff. There is a new sicilian chef who came to say hello during our... More

Ate lunch here and enjoyed being right next to the water, with good views into the bay. As it was winter the restaurant has plastic covers down, which were practical but which changed the atmosphere for the worse. Food was reasonable, with good sized portions. Staff were friendly.

Well, it's one okay restaurant. Unfortunately the one never-to-do things in a restaurant happened. The wine we ordered was served mid-way through the starters, and this after reminding 2 waiters. Main course had 2 thermidor lobsters. Nothing out of this world. Overcooked. Reasonably priced. I guess in summer the atmosphere is nicer as the winter months, it's closed in a... More
