“Dessert Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We visited Oblico on a Friday night, Bugibba was deserted, however this place was very warm. We took two coffees and two pieces of cakes (Almond tart and Apple pie). The cakes were delicious and the coffee was really of a good quality. Although we did not eat, the pasta dishes looked generous and very good. Very promising for next time. A coffee place with a difference. The only negative note is that on Saturday it closed before 11pm :-(.... pity....we missed round 2.

“Outstanding Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Friendly, great value, delicious, fresh, home made food! highly recommend the 'Oblico Special' pasta dish, which comes with a free glass of wine Mon-Fri. Huge portions, tasted amazing! also try the home made gelato! many flavours to choose from, I had the coconut and also the gingerbread (HEAVENLY!). Gets quite busy on the weekends, If you are staying in Bugibba or Qwara it's definitely one not to be missed, Best place we ate in Malta.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Oblico in Bugibba, I make the distinction because there's another one in Gzira somewhere. I come here often, at least once a week and have done so for well over a year.

My girlfriend is local, and lives next door so we had the excuse to start trying it. When you enter you are greeted by a warm smile from whoever is behind the counter - even if the small coffee shop is choc-a-bloc with customers. You have a seat at one of the quirky tables and struggle to take your eyes of their home made cakes. The coffee is good, the food is good but the cakes are divine.

Two coffees and two cakes will come to about 7 or 8 Euros which is more than worth it. Such a good little place :-)

“Best place we ate at in Bugibba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

Friendly, relaxed, good home cooked food at reasonable prices. House special pasta (or any pasta of your choice) and a glass of good wine for Euro7.50. Hard to beat that....
