Where to eat in St.Julians

I´ll go to St.Julians next month. Who could recommend me some good restaurants for dinner which do not only have some "fast food" for tourists?

I would say Baraccuda overlooking Baluta Bay. Definitely not a fast food restaurant.

Quite expensive but nice food. Assorted waiters depending on what is being served.

There are also a number of fish speciality restaurants on the other side of the bay and all with a variety of menus. I would say fine dining could be had in most of them although booking at this time of year probably isn't required. It may be best to phone ahead though to make sure they do not have a private party or the like.

There are also alot of nice restaurants around the harbour at the Hilton complex which are definitely not fast food. If you like Thai head for the Blue Elephant which is very good.

Zest at the hotel Juliani is supposed to be excellent, but unfortunately I can't confirm since it was closed on the night I tried to visit in December.

I would also recommend "Zest". The food and service are excellent.We stayed at the "Meridian" hotel and would also recommend their restaurant "The Villa".There is no shortage of nice places to eat in St Julians so hope you enjoy it.

You could head for Portomaso (near the Hilton) . It`s a private yacht marina with a number of restaurants. There are also many 5 star hotels who all have a range of restaurants. The restaurants along Spinola Bay are good but not cheap.

In Paceville, St Julians there are any number of budget restaurants (The Avenue maybe the most popular because of its great value and good food).

Get yourself to The Avenue for just the best pizzas, pastas & grills. (theavenuemalta.com)

The place is run by those good people who also run the great Hotel Valentina (just around the corner). Good value and good sized portions, you have to fight your way past the locals it's that popular.

My favorite of their's is the linguine ai frutti di mare, but don't have a starter, as this is one seriously large bowl of pasta! & don't forget to ask for a spoon for pasta fork twirling - you'll need it - enjoy your trip.

There are loads of nice places to eat in St J's. Some of our favourites were The Avenue, Paparrazis and the Casino at the Hilton (50% off price till 9pm on a Thursday night). We also ate at a Chinese near Spinola Bay but cant remember the name of it. That was nice as well. Hope this helps.

Sliema is close to St Julians so must try Ta Kolina on tower Road sliema for Maltese food (& other) good price, service & ambience. Ta Chris is another place in Sliema but unfortunately we didnt get to try it out. A walk along the promenade from St Julians to Sliema has lots of restaurants to choose from,, I would love to visit everyone of them but I think i would need a month or so to do so. We also ate at an Indian restuarant in Bugibba (name escapes me? but it was good).

Paperazzi has great food both in quantity and quality and the service is great. I wouldn't recommend 'Zest' as they had nothing on the menu available to eat- everything me and my husband ordered they didn't have.The final straw was when we had consumed half a bottle of wine, whilst waiting for our starters and then was informed they didn't have my Celeriac Lasagne for main, we left.Needless to say we didn't pay for our drinks, the manager agreed that it was a shambles and the restaurat was dead, to say it was the height of the season! We wouldn't go back. Lulu's is ok, but overpriced for the quality of food.The food at the Hilton is great, especially the Italian and the Blue Elephant.

There is a recently opened (end of 2007) restaurant called "Olivers" on Paceville Street, which will definitely have you wanting "more please" after your first visit! Food is not cheap by Maltese standards (cost me around €30-35 for three courses and wine) BUT it is so wondefully presented, creative menu and all freshly made. The desert platter is to die for and the girls looking after you are very ettentive without being intrusive or patronising.

This is closely followed by The Kitchen, on the promenade towards Sliema.

Barracuda has great location and good menu but service is appalling on both my visits.
