“Traditional food with modern approach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

An interesting menu - it was difficult to make a selection as there was much which was appealing. We had the olives for a starter and they were possibly the best home made green olives I have ever tasted. The white bean salad was also full of flavour. The ftira was amazing and the "dirty pasta" good to try. We liked the modern approach to traditional food....some of the other restaurants we have been to in Malta and Gozo have been quite old fashioned and heavy handed with cream and thickened sauces. Gululu is worth a visit.

“Memorable Maltese Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We had a lovely meal at Gululu last night. We come early.. took a stroll up to Spinola Bay and sat inside because as usual this restaurant is fully booked. Service was hearty and efficient and the meal was delicious...were were impressed by the variety and the Maltese addition to familiar dishes.

Warmly recommended!!!

“No kids pasta (don't go to Malta restaurant with kids!?)”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We have asked a small pasta for the 3 year old kid. They served a plate with half kilo pasta and charged a full price at the end. They refused to reduce the bill for symbolic 4 euro. Also door to the toilet was not closing.

“Super fresh food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We booked a table as on at our first attempt to visit the restaurant there were no outside tables available. Starters of goat's cheese and garlic beans were very tasty. For the first time I chose the fresh sea bass which was on display at the front of the restaurant. Cooked very nicely and we both enjoyed the vegetables. My husband was a bit wary because when he asked for a medium steak he was told that it was all cooked the same way. However, his steak was delicious and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. There were "returner" customers whilst we were there and one family who had just finished their meal immediately booked for the next night, so very popular! Would highly recommend this restaurant although there are a lot of really good restaurants around the area with varying prices. We ate out every day and this was our most expensive, but worth it.

“Best sea bass ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our driver when we arrived. He was right. This is a great restaurant situated right on the edge of Spinola Bay. Their freshly caught fish are on display at the entrance to the restaurant. On our first night we both selected sea bass and we were not disappointed. It's the best sea bass I've ever tasted, served up with delicious potatoes and Mediterranean vegetables.
Excellent friendly service. It is highly recommended that you book in advance if you want a table outside as most evenings they get fully booked up for these best tables.

A great friendly, casual place that is not too expensive
