This restaurant is opposite the Sunny Coast Hotel on the waters edge. The atmosphere is bright and open, and with the sound of the waves breaking on the rocks below we enjoyed an excellent meal. It has two menus, Sicilian Italian and Chinese, and offers gluten free dishes.

Expected better service & quality. Staff is friendly but takes ages. Nice view. Overall I like it just struggling to understand the need for so many employees with nothing to do.

After finding myself trapped in the Canifor Hotel for a week, what a delight to find this charming little oasis. Great food, great people, great chef. One big thank you from me, Ian and my brother Michael

Totally ridiculous Chinese knock off food.

The duck was burnt... More

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
