fantastic view over Balluta bay

In sunny weather (and no wind, of course) it is a fantastic place to enjoy the view, have coffee, meet people

This square has a small row of restaurants which offer alfresco dining during the warmer months. You can dine, chat and look out to sea!

It is a nice promenade next to it, but this corner is more quiet, no rush there. It is located next to very beautiful art nouveau building. You can enjoy all the architectural details,while drink Your coffee or tea. I wouldn't say it is different from any other place on promenade.

Great little place to kick back and relax. I highly recommend Zeppi's restaurant just off the square for some supper. Their spaghetti Vongole is wonderful. Ballutta square is also a great place to watch Maltese culture in action. Enjoy Balluta Square and it's uniqueness.
