Having dined here for over 20 years, you may ask why do I always return. Is it the amazing menu the freshness and quality of the food, the first class service, the ambiance well it is all of these and more. Quite frankly the Venus is a cut above any other restaurant it has class, elegance and is a great fine dining experience there is nothing to touch. I have visited many many times and the very high standards have always been maintained. I have just returned and enjoyed 4 great evenings there. The menu is original and changes most years this time from the A La Carte for starters I had Thai fish cakes with calamari and for the main I enjoyed Duck in sweet chilli and ginger ( simply yummy) and the local fish. I tried red Snapper on one visit and Dentry fish (the spelling maybe incorrect) on another occasion ,both local fish served as an option with massive kingprawns. Baked in the oven the fillets were so tender the meat melts in your mouth . There is also an excellant fixed price menu 3 courses for 25euros. Both the A La carte and fixed menus offer a good variety of meat and fish dishes with vegatians catered for. A nice touch is that before ordering your meal you are shown at your table the cuts of meat and fish available on the menu. At this time the staff member will offer you if required recommendations or if you wish you can discuss how you would like your meal cooked, the staff really are extremely knowledgeable and will do all they can to ensure you have a great dining experience. The wine list is select and 1st class. The clients are a good mix of tourists, expats and maltese. If your looking for a lovely evening , enjoy good food and want to go somewhere special try the Venus you wont be disappointed. Whilst waiting for your food to be freshly prepared and cooked for you enjoy the ambiance, fresh bread and canape are served once your order has been taken.This is and has been my favorite restaurant for many years it really is the very best in Bugibba. I would recommend at the weekends that you try and book but this is not essential. Happy dining

The atmosphere was warm and inviting, the service was great and the food was amazing, the chef came out to greet patrons afterwards and we totally complimented him on the food.

Fell upon this restaurant and decided to dump the half board in the hotel and treat ourselves to celebrate my birthday. Excellent food and at a reasonable price, my wife's comment of the night was 'if the sweet was twice the price it would still be worth it'.
We enjoyed the experience so much that we decided to visit on another night and we're not disappointed.
I think the reviewer with the bad experience should have told the staff as I feel they would have fixed the situation immediately.

The best restaurant in Bugibba by a country mile. The fixed price menu is an absolute bargain. To sit outside you will almost certainly need to book. If you appreciate quality food at a reasonable price with pleasant staff, this is the place for you.

What a find. Please allow yourself to step those 50 m away from all the greasy food and bad lighting found so many places in buggiba and go to Venus for excellent food - beautifully presented, great atmosphere and nice staff. And at very reasonable prices! Three course meal at 25 euro is a bargain. Go there! :-)
