“Super Lobster”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

An excellent restaurant experience. You get to pick your fish from a display of the day's catch. We had lobster which was delicious. Service is solid - the lead waitress (who reminded me of one of the girls in Robert Palmer "Addicted to Love" video) clearly rules with a strong hand behind the scenes. Chef comes out to check all is OK.

“Impressive!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I had been willing to visit this restaurant for a long time and I regret not going before! The food is absolutely delicious, the seafood impressively fresh and everything was cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable and what was supposed to be a short visit ended up in a long relaxed night!

“Fabulous restaurant - one of my favourites”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Without hesitation, I would rate this restaurant as one of the finest at Saint Julians - the location, the quality of service, attire and politeness of waiters, the cleanliness, the decor and of course the excellent food (particularly fish dishes).

“Not making the most of itself”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Unlike many of the restaurants located around Spinola bay, Vermell is located on its South side, right next to the busy main road.

Firstly, the food and service were very good. The staff were friendly and the meals well presented.

Please be aware that there is a €10 cover charge on each meal, and that the Pasta on the menu (if ordered as a main) is liable for a €3 price increase. I don't know whether this is a common practice in Malta - but it certainly surprised us.

We visited the restaurant on a Thursday evening at about 7:30pm and were very surprised to find ourselves as the only people in the restaurant. This remained the case throughout the entire meal. Given that this was the height of season, and the restaurants across the bay were completely packed out, struck us as very odd.

The restaurant is next to the busy road, which may put some people off. However, the restaurant and its staff did not seem to be putting the effort to attracts customers which they could have been.

If I owned the restaurant, I'd have someone handing out flyers and perhaps some kind of special offer vouchers on the pavement opposite (where all the foot traffic is located) in an effort to encourage custom.

I did notice the restaurant was busier on the Friday night, so likely had a better atmosphere. Overall, good - but would be better with a few improvements.

Dear Quantock Warrior,

You have every right to express your opinion on my restaurant and I respect that, but you have no right to lie about it because there is no such thing as a cover charge, here at Vermell. the only thing that we have indicated on our menu is that the minimum charge on food is 10 euros per person, so I would appreciate if you would clear this thing up.

Thanks,
Kleaven
