Lovely food, fantastic location. On 29 oct our last night we booked a table as we always have our last meal of the holiday there. The weather was so stormy, I thought they might close so was so surprised to see that they honoured are booking. Which meant a lot to me. I would to thank all the staff at... More

Another excellent restaurant in this little enclave! More old skool than Tarragon but equally good with excellent silver service & superb food & wine - really lovely in a vintage way. Joyce was fabulous & made us feel like we were old friends! Highly recommend this charming place.

The Gillieru was once the place 'to go to'. Beautiful location, massive facilities able to cater for many patrons without squashing them together, offering a magnificent sea view that must be the envy of most Maltese and Gozitan restaurants. I remember the place being vibrant, full of life and lights in my childhood, close to 40 years ago. Today Gillieru... More

Lovely restaurant overlooking the bay. Can eat inside or outside, just the job on a late summer's evening.Food cooked and served professionally. Staff very friendly. Will visit next time when in St Paul's Bay on holiday. Hopefully next year.

All I can say is excellent tasty food served in a very reasonable time. Polite helpful staff and always service with a smile. Great views into the bay from the outside area and a wonderful, cosy drinking area.

We have been going to this restaurant for more than 3 years and besides the great view it offers, they have the most delicious mussels. The customer service is friendly, helpful and genuine, it offers an ideal place for good food and embracing atmosphere.

They have better prices for the hotel guests, but what is the use if they don't inform customers about this offer?
