“Excellent quality, great price!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Small family run business that is always busy... This is because the food is excellent quality, presented beautifully and VERY generous portions. There is a set menu for €12.95 3 courses and wine!! Which is great value, but as we ate there a lot we ordered off the menu, which had loads on it!! The steaks were beautiful and BIG, excellent quality!! (They also have specials on the board so one night we even tried kangaroo!!) the chef does a great job and cooks exactly as it should be!! And his wife holds the fort out of the kitchen!! 10/10 would recommend to anybody who comes to bugibba. Try other places but you will always end up wishing you had gone to bugies!!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Once we found Bugies we just kept going back as everywhere else couldn't compete. Best value for money was €12.95 set menu as 4/5 choices for starters and main which included wine, and a couple of dessert options. The portions were extremely generous (I'm sure the main course plates were 15" across!) and every meal we had was delicious. They also had a specials board with more options and the staff were friendly and prompt. Highly recommended.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We have been going to Bugibba for approx 10 years and found this restaurant on our first visit . We have been back every year since . It is run by a maltese man and his wife who is from Sunderland . The portions are massive and we are always absolutely stuffed when we come out . It is always busy especially with locals which is always a good sign . We find we now have to book a table especially during high season . There is plenty of choice on the menu and always lots of specials . Would recommend this place to anyone .

“one of the best in Malta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

thumbs up for constant good food, atmosphere & service quality !! this restaurant is quite appealing...once you enter, count yourself at home. One can choose to eat, while enjoying a pleasant bottle of wine, and ending with a special sweet dessert for an averge good pricce.!! though in the heart of bugibba - a summer resort, i do strongly recommend this restaurant for dining during wintery-weekends and experience a cosy-warm-lighted dinner!

“Good value, OK food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

At €12.85 for a 3-course set menu, including a glass of wine and coffee, this place is very good value, the food is OK with generous portions, although nothing exceptional. I had filo prawns to start - 5 nice prawns, and my partner had spring rolls (3), which were meant to come with a sweet chilli dipping sauce, but didn't. These starters came with a large salad, which would have been nice, but was liberally sprinkled with some sort of spice and a bbq type sauce, which unfortunately spoiled it. I had chicken for main and my partner had rump steak, both of which were served with pre-frozen chips & veg - they were OK. My partner ordered ice-cream for pud and I chose the apple pie, but we both got a slice of pie (we didn't bother to say anything), We left full and at €26-odd for the two of us, it was good value, but nothing special. We were the only people dining on a Tuesday eve and the staff were friendly. What did disappoint us however was that they had some nice background music in there when we started, but then they put the TV on loudly instead, which they said was for their young son to watch the footy, but he wasn't even watching it most of the time! Had it been on when we arrived, we wouldn't have even contemplated dining there.
