“The Figurehead”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

I am informed by the chef that that is what 'La Pulena' means.
I saw listed on the menu 'vongole' which ensured our interest.
It was a pleasure to eat with a bottle of cool white wine.
My wife had heart shaped ravioli parcels with a delicious filling.
She sought and got the recipe then and there.
Both sauces were each light and lovely.
That we enjoyed ourselves is a 'given'.
So will you!

“Great value for money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We were a little bit late looking for a restaurant to have lunch, and tried La Pulena as we saw some people still sitting there. The restaurant accepted us graciously and didn't try to hurry us out of the restaurant. Service was prompt and attentive, everyone was happy with their choices, and the bill was very reasonable. We sat outside under their large umbrellas, enjoying a view of the fishing boats on a sunny, warm September afternoon. It couldn't have been better!

“Really good place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

We ate in here twice. The waiters are extremely helpful & not pushy like some of the other places in town. The fresh fish Lampuki was cooked to perfection, then filleted at the table. Good prices & atmosphere. Definitely worth stopping here. Tiny shame about the view. Some restaurants have better but the food it not so good

“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went here on our first night in Gozo and had a very good meal which was needed after a rather frazzling day or so. The staff were very good and knew their menu well, the food and wine were of good quality and plentiful. Following a rather disastrous starter in a different restaurant on our last night we decided to go there for our mains, on this occasion the staff surpassed themselves and very quickly rescued our evening. They seemed to pull out all the stops without doing anything out of the extra-ordinary. Certainly one of my favourite restaurants on the island.

“Excellent Local Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We visited La Pulena during our recent visit to Marsalforn. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent with an interesting selection of local dishes. The cost was very reasonable.
