Description: Discover the soul of Mediterranean dining whilst taking in the breath taking view of Malta’s most charming bays. Terrazza, situated over Spinola Bay, St Julians is the perfect place to experience fine Mediterranean cuisine. Watch the world go by whilst indulging in our skilfully prepared dishes or sipping a glass of fine wine. Terrazza is open all day everyday making it the perfect place to stop for a small bite or to treat yourself to a lavish meal. We promise you an experience that will heighten your senses. It can be reached either from the Cavallieri Hotel end of the bay or from the side of the ‘Love’ sculpture. In both cases, simply follow the waterfront promenade until you see the "Terrazza" sign, head up the stairs and you're there.

The restaurant commands a good view over Spinola bay, away from the traffic and the noise of the main drag of St. Julian's.

We thought the service was reasonably good and the food good too, if a little on the small side. The only thing which brought it down were a few mangy felines hanging around by the tables on the terrace. The restaurant waitresses and manager didn't seem all that concerned by their presence. However, I found it rather disconcerting eating my meal with a couple of cats sat watching my every move... If they decided to pop the cats in the pot and create a tasty new meal, I would most certainly return.

This restaurant is in a beautiful spot of Spinola Bay. The view is amazing, and it looks like being far away from the traffic and noise typical of San Julian.
The tables on the terrace have lots of space around, you can be very comfortable.
There are too many cats around waiting for your fish, but if you don't consider them, they will not annoy you.
We went during the week with no reservation: the waiter managed to give us a table at the seafront for a couple of hours.
The service was great - polite, efficient, friendly and helpful.
We had starters - try the salmon sashimi, it was perfect, definitively recommended. The other one was the day choice (octopus), and it was really tasty.
Then we had 2 mains of the day, portions were definitively big, but not that special, I was expecting more.
The dessert was really good - chocolate and hazelnut semifreddo.
The wine was a good local one, not too expensive - the waitress recommended it.
The bill was about 75 euros, i think it is pretty honest.
Positive comment for me on this restaurant, the view and the silence are worth it, i'll probably go back to try something else.

This was our first dinner of the holiday, and it definitely started it off well! The service was good, as was the house Maltese wine; however, the stand-out was the squid ink and octopus risotto on as a special. This was delicious and without a doubt worth the 10 Euros for a generous portion size - I will say be prepared for a black mouth by the end of the dish! Worth the mess!

An ideal - central yet surprisingly peaceful - location directly overlooking the picturesque bay. Well-spaced tables offer privacy, subdued lighting provides a romantic atmosphere. Very good service - friendly yet professional, good food cooked to perfection. Our Maltagold discount card was accepted even if the management has changed recently. My four points rather than five are due to the higher than average prices for the Island (but this is the most popular entertainment area after all) and a limited choice of desserts (mostly mousses). Apart from that, I must say we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and evening out.

Food was alright but nothing special and the portions were a little bit small. Nice atmosphere though and was very busy. Will visit again but only for a bottle of wine and maybe try a platter..
