Il Galeone was a perfect spot for dinner on the first night after several hours in planes and airports. Good service and excellent food.

Stumbled across this lovely place after rejecting quite a few others. We ate inside as space was limited outside and it's quite q busy road. The food was really lovely, especially the starters. I had prawn and avocado which was done as a timbale and tasted delicious. Husband had a salmon and prawn pancake which was delicate and stuffed with... More

One of the best meals in Sliema, Malta for us. Most places had an ok quality, but the food in the ll Galeone was noticeably better. It's a little more expensive but well worth it, especially for the Gamba's...

Charming on a street of less good restaurants. This is a small restaurant with excellent food. It it tastes like home cooked food. Great view but.. The traffic spoils the opportunity to see the view. I had rabbit ravioli and beef stroganoff followed by profiteroles coffee and limoncello. It was my last night on Malta and I think I saved... More

My Wife and I dined here on a number occasions while on holiday during June 2016. Each time the service excellent and the staff very friendly. Although there isn't a large range of food on the menu, each time it was delicious and cooked to perfection. This a proper Italian restaurant so you won't find pizza on the menu, just... More

I had a pleasant evening at this restaurant on the strand boulevard. We sat out the front of the restaurant, it was less touristy on this part of the strip. We ordered a local bottle of Rose and the waiter brought out complementary olives, bread and bruschetta. For main we ordered chicken breast stuffed with butter and garlic that came... More

One of the few quality restaurants in Sliema, Il Galeone has been a constant feature of the town's dining scene for decades. It is a convenient dining venue for quick business lunches. The waiting staff never charge and they seem frozen in time,,,,,,,,,,,they do not seem to age. The service for regulars is personal and the serving staff will guess... More

We found this restaurant on the last nigh of our seven day stay in Sliema. As there was eight of us, we had or find somewhere that we could get a table together. We were undecided and had to decide between this restaurant and the one next door. Luckily we made the correct choice. It is not the closest one... More
