Offering stunning views over the bay, Gululu is a place we'll definitely visit again. We shared a Maltese pizza (Ftira it-forno) for a starter and had a small pasta dish each for main. Lovely glass of local wine to go with it, or try a local beer like Cisk. My pud (pudina) was to die for and staff were friendly... More

Great Maltese cuisine experience, located just a stone throw away from the sea in St. Julian's, Gululu offers a friendly and relaxed dining experience. I recommend it for a taste of local cuisine :-)

It was ok. Service not impeccable. The rabbit was very good. They have a lovely terrace facing the port.

We had a very good meal and enjoyed local cuisine however the staff were very over whelmed and service was slow. We had to chase them to deliver our drinks. We would recommend this restaurant but need patience.

Average quality food but the way it's cooked.... Too salty and all you can taste is the mix of spices.... Plus: Terrible bread!

Lovely traditional Maltese restaurant on the waterfront of Spinola Bay. Ate here twice, once at lunchtime and once for dinner. Very good atmosphere , full of locals and always busy. Food was delicious . If you want an outside table in the evening you need to book. Recommded.

Gululu offers a wide range of vegetarian dishes, my wife is vegetarian, as well as traditional Maltese food. It was OK, nothing to write home about I would try the other local restaurants before going back again.

I always enjoy gululu! Perfect atmosphere, relaxed and quiet. Very good salads and ftira! Try the pumpkin salad or the tursina! And as for the ftira, my husband had the hummus one. Simply great!
