May 2016, first visit in Malta. We were looking for real Maltanese flavours in St Julians. At hotel they told us that Gululu restaurant is serving very nice food and... they didn't lie.. We were very happy to spend our evening over there.. Food was great.. We had 2 maltanese pizzas: ftira charbija and ftira tqaqqieqa. After that we asked... More

The restaurant claims to serve typical Maltese dishes, a claim that is not misplaced except that the definition of 'Maltese dishes' remains hazy. The quality of the food itself is OK, not special. The location on the other hand is hard to beat, on the water front of possibly the quaintest urban creek on the island, wedged between nightlife and... More

This restaurant was recommended by our host in Saint Julian's. The food was neither bad nor anything particularly special and the service was rather poor. I normally wouldn't bother rating this restaurant if I didn't find some pieces of broken glass in my food. I can only hope I will not suffer internal injuries. At the end, I did not... More

Went there with a group of around 25 persons. The seating was perfect the view an added bonus. The food that came out of the kitchen was a mixture of Maltese and Italian dishes and was cooked to perfection. Better in winter than in summer as the atmosphere was great. It was the first time that I couldn't eat what... More

This is a very lovely Maltese cuisine restaurant right by the water's edge of Spinola Bay in St Julian's. I recommend eating outside, weather permitting, but the interior is very lovely and well decorated. The food is very good and varied and the service is always good (have been a few times). One word of advise. ALWAYS ask for the... More

Just marvellous, we had a room all to ourselves and a dedicated waiter all to ourselves. I cannot fault anything. Great flow of service both in the food and the beverage considering we were a party of 26 plus 3 children. The food was just great.

It was all ok. There were 8 of us there was nothing bad but no one said wow loved there food. My pizza was ok. It was bland to taste though. My wife had fresh fish and I thought it was ok but nothing special and generally we think it's quite expensive here. Service was good and a great setting.

Good food, good setting. Lacking a little atmosphere although a Sunday night in November. Friendly staff but a little quiet.
