“Simply awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This hidden little gem just in front of the square does the most awesome food.

The rabbit here is excellent as well as doing an excellent English breakfast.

“A real gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We saw this place whilst watching the fireworks festival and decided to give it a try.

WOW .. portions are massive,food tastes amazing and it's cheap as chips. Right on the sea front it's a very relaxing place to eat ..

Staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you.

“Brilliant value for money,great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Myself and my partner came here for our first meal on arrival in Malta, the restaurant doesn't look like much but is a fantastic little spot with lovely food and staff.I had a lovely pizza and the misses had the best seafood salad she has ever had! There was a waitress there who was so friendly and helpful!

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Truly amazing food! not the best place because the sea can get you, but still just amazing! Great scenery to eat though!, Great for families because they got great kids food and the chef is just amazing! and also efficient service too :) highly recommended!

“Great food, Cheap & Very Cheerful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Had read about Huggy Bear Lido and it was exactly as expected - a pretty plain, rough outdoor restaurant that does great food at low prices!

My (now ex-) girlfriend was very unimpressed with the setting itself, and dubious of the food but she trusted me trusting the reviews I'd read.

She had the scampi & chips which was good, if unspectacular (though she didn't use salt or vinegar, a crime with scampi!)
I had the tropical chicken, which was chicken stuffed with salmon and cheese, on the recommendation of the waitress. It was very, very tasty & my companion approved highly too.

The restaurant is set beside the sea, close enough to get misted or more by the nearby waves.

Definitely worth a visit :)
