“Beautiful Bay, lovely atmosphere, great food, and good evenings out”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Lovely views, plenty of good restaurants and nice bars. Both lovely in the daytime and evening. It's great for views and food. The buses are regular and are great to both Valetta and St.Julian (hotels for Raddison Blu and Corinthia). I'd highly recommend for lunch, dinner, and quiet drinks. It's far tamer then near-by Paceville, with the younger crowds. Stays open quite late, and friendly atmosphere out for the evening, the Dragonara Casino is also nearby, along the far end of the bay. No big attractions, but great for a leisurly meals with friends, family, or for couples (as we visited) with traditional fishing boats moored alongside private boats, a lovely bay and fantastic views out to the sea, down the bay and over to Sliema and beyond. Well worth a visit for an evening or two, and if you are staying near-by the best place for your meals and drinks out not far from hotels and such.

“Ok”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Worth a walk through, but nothing special. Some good seafood restaurants right by the fishing boat houses however.
