“Amazing food, drinks & atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Imagine sitting on the beach, drinking a cold beer (nothing like a Maltese Cisk) and eating good affordable yummy food!!!! That is what you get at Munchies. When the weather is good as we experienced on our first day in Malta and you just want to relax and get to know your surroundings, this a perfect spot to relax for a bit and to soak in the sun. The service is a bit slow but they are busy. We had a platter of finger foods and some were ok and some lots better such as the fried calamari. However, we saw loads of nice looking dishes being served and we are intending to return again this week. And the prices are very very good.

“Fantastic beach bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This was a very popular place when I visited midweek at lunchtime. It offers a whole range of food but I just wanted a beer and to try a couple of typically Maltese snacks. No problem even though I wasn't ordering a meal. This is a beach bar right on Golden Bay with wonderful sea views and a relaxed, happy atmosphere despite being busy. Service was quick and efficient. I thought the bill at well under €3 for a small lager and two snacks was exceptional value given the location.

“MUNCHIES.....A GREAT PLACE TO EAT.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

After finding this little gem of an eatery we didn't want to eat anywhere else. My husband and
I can eat most things, but we are very fussy about how our food is cooked and presented to us. Cleanliness of course is of the utmost importance and it's a bonus if the service is good too. MUNCHIES ticks all the boxes, as does their other place just 200 or so yards across the beach. We chose different food each visit and were never disappointed as every meal was a treat, and excellent value too. Jason and team do a terrific job of looking after you but are never intrusive. We couldn't quite believe that Jason is not the owner but an employee, as he runs the business so well. We'll definitely go back !!!

“Christmas Eve Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

You can't get any better sitting in a restaurant overlooking a beach by a log fire while having fantastic food in the winter. That was our experience today. There was a lot on the menu but we opt for some of the specials as it was pumpkin soup and turkey with a sausage, peach and walnut stuffing, vegetables and your choice of potatoes as it is Christmas tomorrow. It was absolutely beautiful and the best different turkey dish we've had in a long time. The soup was lovely and thick and a meal on it's own. There is a choice of desserts, coffee and of course a after dinner/lunch drink if you want...We would highly recommend it and will definitely go back again..

“Even the locals love it :-)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

The title says it all really....if a local recommends a restaurant, then you should try it out too...Munchies is literally on the Golden Bay beach and has recently upgraded the premises to a cool and casual atmosphere with a first-class menu and service. The mild Maltese weather makes it an ideal venue all year round (winter is even better as the beach is almost deserted, meaning less people in general).
The drive up from Sliema/St Julian's area is enjoyable and the restaurant is also a nice place to stop off at on the way back from a day in Melllieha or Gozo.
Trust me, you will not be disappointed :-)
