We visited here on the day we arrived and it was around lunch time, it was pretty quiet and only the inside downstairs was open during this time. They offered table service, we ordered the calamari to share and it was definitely enough for two...people! I had a Mai Thai which was very good. We visited again the second day in the evening and this is when it truly came alive, it was really busy the the roof terrace was open. Table service again and this time I ordered a raspberry mojito and it exceeded expectations, loved it! I found everything to be a little pricey but honestly it became apparent that everywhere in St Julian's bay was a bit more on the expensive side. Would definitely go back if I return to MaltaMore

We stopped here for lunch during our holiday and had a lovely time! It was in a perfect location and had a great view of the beach, with glass ceiling that proved to be useful when it rained a little. The food was amazing and...they had a great selection of drinks too. Super friendly service and I'd definitely recommend it overall.More

Hello all users. This is a truly review by independent reviewer. Visited this place couple of times, and this time, was more than enough for me to place a review. You go to the restaurant for a good prepared food, and spending a good time...in a pleasant atmosphere, this is of course not about this PLACE. Ordered a nice described pizza from the main menu, after eating it, in 4 hours got the high level intoxicating. Thank you a lot dear chef and Hugos Terace administration for selling products with a $$$$ price and having them of a worst quality. Will never visit this place again. There are a lot of alternatives in Malta, especially in St.Julians area where you can have much better experience than in this place.More

Visited last Saturday for the second time, we came back as the place seemed a place for little older people and not so clubby as most of the places in the area. Got to the door and been looked at by THREE security guards who...LITERALLY SCREENED US with more than half empty venue, acted like if they were checking if they could take us in then refused. With literally soooooo many empty table (DO NOT GIVE ME THAT BS OF WE HAVE FUTURE BOOKING SINCE IT WAS DEAD). We ended up going to the restaurant next door where we had to queue right in front of Hugo's terrace and seen soo many people going in without a booking. Again probably we were too brown for them or didn't look like we could afford it (I AM 100% CERTAIN that it was because of our looks for the way they've screened us) not knowing that we literally were there the night before and spent over 200 euros on drinks only. Absolutely put us off and would never recommended to anyone!!!More
