Staying at St Julians for just a week last October we ate at Scruples 3 times, once for lunch, twice for dinner, we couldn't fault it! The staff were polite, attentive and happy to explain the menu and cooking styles of the less common dishes. Our food was freshly cooked and beautifully presented, flavoursome and very moreish- the fish dishes were exceptionally good! The bill wasn't a shocker either, very reasonable for the area and worth every penny! We ate outside and inside (prefered alfresco but rain stopped play one evening!) both areas traditoinally decorated and more than comfortable. We'll definitely be going back there next time we're in Malta.

In a nice location in a square between Sliema an St Julians.
After ordering our meal and wine,whilst we were waiting, the waiter brought us a dish of snails, 'done Maltese style' he said.This was accopmpanied with some freshly cooked Maltese bread.We had never tried snails before so this was our chance. Well at least I can now say I've tried them.Probobly the last time.After this our meal arrived,hot and well cooked,washed down with a decent house wine, all for about £20.No complaints here.Good value,nice location,nothing better

I had been looking forward to trying the Maltese rabbit and this restaurant seemed authentic. 3 nice pieces of back on the plate in a traditional wine and garlic sauce so the menu stated but it was just a thin, not very well seasoned gravy. It looked very basic and rather unappetising. Taste of the rabbit was fine and it was well cooked and moist but it just lacked that something special. My girlfriend's fish of the day was also very basic and average. Served with chips, and boiled veg.

I been going to scruples for a long time,we go there cause its so relaxing eating there at the square with seaview.we live in St Julians so its easy you dont have to drive and take a long time to park..Its by a family so better serviceand every thing is fresh doneso that maybe will take time to be serve but while waiting you will be served by Fabien a nice bottel of wine so you can enjoy while waiting for food.I suggest this restourant for tourits living in this area to visit Scruples good rest and not expensive.

We only found this restaurant, the last two nights of our holiday, located just after you enter St Julians from Sliema, the value for money and food quality was the best we experience on the island.
Yes, pherhaps the time to recieve your meal is a little protracted but believe me it is well worth waiting for, especialy the fish dishes.
The staff are also great, all smiles and very helpful, you can tell this restaraunt is popular as people wait for tables to become free rather than going to one of the other numerous eateries.
