“Splash - welcoming & friendly bar/cafe with wifi”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

My son James and I visited "Splash" daily (usually more than once), whilst staying at the Damiani, which is opposite. Great breakfasts throughout the day, even catering for fussy young men, who still talks about the fried bread and sausages! Generous portions on both food and drink too. We also had Sunday lunch, with proper gravy, homemade yorkshires, roasties and three veg (unusual in Bugibba; both had clean plates and couldn't manage a pudding. I took to calling in for a morning cuppa, chat and a catch up on emails using their free wifi. Recently under new ownership Roger and his mother in law Mandy, eagerly awaiting the arrival of Vicky from the UK; have great plans to put their own stamp on the place. If it's a friendly face, good home cooking and local knowledge you're after, then Splash is a must. Wishing you all the best for the future (and the wedding), hugs to all and strokes for Buddy, miss you already. Janie and James

Reviewed July 30, 2014

We visited "Splash" for breakfast, Sunday lunch and drinks. The bar is run by Roger and his mother in law Mandy who are both extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is a must as they serve British bacon and not the usual streaky bacon found generally in Malta.
All meals and drinks are very reasonably priced in comparison with other bars/restaurants.

What more could you wish for - lovely inexpensive food, very reasonably priced drinks and welcoming and friendly staff.

Well done guys.

p.s. Macie says hi to Buddy.

“Cheap cafe food”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

This cafe was just across the road from the apartments we were staying in and because of the reviews we tried it out for lunch on our first day, we arrived at lunchtime. We didn't go for the much acclaimed english breakfast, which is served until 5pm for 3.20 euros. We had steak & onion roll with chips and salad, cheeseburger chips and salad. To drink 1 large beer and a coke.
Food was cooked well nice real chips - not that difficult really. Cost 13.80 euros so well priced.
The place itself could do with a bit of a spruce up. The picnic benches that provide the seating and tables outside need repainting, they are bright yellow and the seat pads need attention too. The table cloths really let the place down as they were tired and dirty looking.
As we were able to see this place from or balcony opposite I am surprised that the owners can make a living from the business that it appears they do. Maybe an investment in newer more appropriate furnishings may make a difference. Inside was definitely old fashioned.
On the plus side if you fancy plain at home type food at a reasonable price this could be the place for you.
