Reviewed yesterday NEW

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Gululu. Service was good and very friendly by the mostly Maltese staff. Food was excellent and well presented. The atmosphere is very welcoming. It is a very sought after restaurant right in the middle of St. Julian`s. Views are also beautiful. Very much recommended.

We have been there with two couples, each of us ordering different dishes incl. Starters. The food was very good, portions were not that big, a good size. Service was nice but a little slow and they kept on forgetting things. But that's more or less normal in Malta. Can recommend the place.

The view is indeed great here. However the food and the service are the best as advertised. I got the fish of the day which was just average, nothing very impressive. And then we've waited for 20 minutes for our bill which in the end was incorrect, with extra items on it. Recommendation: Don't order aperol, it's not very good.... More

It might be a hit with tourists and foreigners but definitely a no-no for locals. Traditional dishes are extremely overpriced and portions are very small. I left the restaurant with a lighter wallet but still an empty stomach.

We are sorry to read your above review and that you felt that portions were small and food over priced. This comes as a surprise to us since the general feedback we get from both tourists as well as the many locals that frequent Gululu on a regular basis, is that our portions are very decent (and sometimes quite big)...

We were a group of four and all agreed that the food we had was excellent. Mainly traditional Maltese all very tasty. Lovely views over St. Julian's bay. We were in the upstairs room which opens onto a balcony.

We got a table but the waitress disappeared before we were shown our table. We found it ourselves. We were 6 people but there were only plates and glasses for 4. We had to ask to get the rest of the glasses and plates. First came one plate and then we waited. Then came 4 other plates. We then waited... More

For traditional maltese food...this place is OK. Lots of fish....and a few meat dishes to choose from. Friendly staff...in high season may be wise to book a table as always busy especially of an evening
