“Quiet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is a very nice area but was very quiet the day we visited, apparently when there is a cruise ship in town it has a better atmosphere although you would expect the visitors to be taking in the sites of Valletta for their one day stopover

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Quite a long walk from the centre of Valletta. Decent selection of bars and restaurants on the waterside with reasonable views but certainly not living up to the hype in the guidebooks and online. Worth a visit but dont expect too much!

“pretty waterfront with many restaurants, few shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

a lovely restored waterfront underneath FLoriana and facing Vittorioso. probably best for lunch or dinner as shops seem few. you can take the lift from the car park outside valletta city gate, but then you have to walk through a tunnel, where unfortunately many of the lights are out. a taxi back up after dinner to the city gate will cost 10euro. recommend \brown's kitchen for dinner

“Neat to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The redeveloped waterfront hosts a number varied restaurants with varying menus. The restaurants afford a view of the Grand Harbour and the cruise ship,terminal and a reasonable value for money.

Worthy of note however is that the are a fair hike from Valletta town centre, not to bad going but a decent climb to get back. There is a local bus however that runs every 30 minutes back to town.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Every turn in the road brings a new photo opportunity. Busy port with large cruise ships coming and going.
