“No joy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

We visited with the thoughts of a social drink and maybe a small bite to eat (lunch), but the young female staff member did not make us feel wanted as she appeared to be more involved in a larger party waiting to be served! So we left and I informed the young lady that I thought here customer service was atrocious! This should not be a reflection on Paul the other staff member. lovely location and even better in the sunshine!!

“Good food, location and value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

St Julian's is blessed with several very good restaurants and Gululu adds to that reputation. On our recent visit we ate late afternoon (tea time to us northerners!) and had two Mediterranean dishes - Ghagin Grieg (Pasta with minced pork) and Froga tat-Tarja with bacon (a pasta cake shaped like an omelette made from spaghetti). Both were really nice, tasty and well presented and good value for money if there was one criticism it would be there was a little too much to eat but some might not find that a problem. We would have given it a full five stars if the service had been a little quicker but perhaps we were not used to the pace of Maltese life so early in the holiday.
This is another restaurant that demands a visit from those staying on the island and it also provides an opportunity to sample food other than the ubiquitous Italian food that proliferates on the island.

“Great Environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

I had heard about this restaurant and wanted to try it out for quite a long time. It's a very nice place. The staff are very friendly and professional. Will go back :) it's great since I believe in Malta we didn't have a restaurant just dedicated to Maltese cuisine :)

“good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Went twice in a month. Service is excellent. Food is very tasty. May be a bit on the expensive side though - €10+ for a small starter portion of calamari. But I will still go again! Recommendable.
