“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The Basilico is a very good restaurant with a wide range of foods always cooked to a high standard and good sized portions. It is within the Wtaerfront Hotel but those not staying in the hotel should not be put off from visiting it and for those in the hotle it is on floor M - it could do with better signage. Friendly relaxed atmosphere, sometimes staff seem a little reluctant but Malcolm is great. Worth a visit.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We ate there on four evenings during our week in Malta. A lovely, attractive restaurant with great views. The staff were fine too. The food was very good - the menu had an excellent choice. I don't eat wheat but had not problem finding something tasty to eat - risotto, chicken dishes etc. All were excellent, generous proportions and very reasonably priced. A credit to the Waterfront to have such a lovely restaurant.

“Slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Food was fantastic best Italian food we had during our holiday but the service was so slow you could wait for ages for the waiter came for your order. Mind you there was only one waiter on duty at any one time. There were four tables inside and six outside.
