Never been in an aquarium before, so for me it was a really nice experience. I really liked the jellyfish. Even I went on 15th of August the queue was fast and the aquarium not so crowded.

Good selection of fish and marine life but compered to others that I visited around Europe, this one is very small and above all very expensive.

Didn’t expect that! Fantastic couple of hours enjoyed by all the family. Not the biggest aquarium but plenty to keep us occupied for a morning visit. Would recommend a visit.

Stumbled across the bistro by accident however, so pleased we did. My children chose the bistro as the place to have our last dinner in Malta and we weren’t disappointed. Great menu, great drink selection and big portions. Ticked all the boxes!
