Very nice Maltese Restaurant in St Julians. Food is very nice and the service was too. The location of the place is really nice in the bay, just worth it.

Rude stuff. Very noisy place. We ask for a table in front of the sea. They lied to us about a reserved table so they could shove us upstairs in the back side of the floor and half and hour after we sat they told...More

They were very busy and as a result we received poor service. I don’t mind waiting to be served but do expect to feel welcome. The meal was disappointing and we didn’t enjoy the food. I had an eggplant dish that lacked any flavour. My...More

Had the traditional Maltese rabbit (as it was Sunday) and yes, I now know how rabbit is supposed to be served. Great service as well, and the prices are reasonable.

The menu was great and we appreciated the Maltese food. However the dishes weren’t as tasty as we expected and the pizzas we over cooked with little toppings. Nice service.

If you want to know what the traditional Maltese food is like, then I highly recommend that you try out Gululu which is located in Spinola Bay. We tried the starter of bread/crackers accompanied by 4 tasty dips. We also had the bragoli (beef) and...More

Great local food. We were actually looking for another restaurant which we gave up on in the end and noticed a group of restaurants by the harbour. After a quick trip advisor search we decided upon this place last minute and were not disappointed. They...More
