Had read about Huggy Bear Lido and it was exactly as expected - a pretty plain, rough outdoor restaurant that does great food at low prices!

My (now ex-) girlfriend was very unimpressed with the setting itself, and dubious of the food but she trusted me trusting the reviews I'd read.

She had the scampi & chips which was good, if unspectacular (though she didn't use salt or vinegar, a crime with scampi!)
I had the tropical chicken, which was chicken stuffed with salmon and cheese, on the recommendation of the waitress. It was very, very tasty & my companion approved highly too.

The restaurant is set beside the sea, close enough to get misted or more by the nearby waves.

Definitely worth a visit :)

We made a point of finding Huggy Bear Lido after reading reviews. It's down a set of steps on a large cement patio, overlooking the sea. The restaurant itself is plastic tables and chairs on a slab of cement, the food was really very good. We had the Malta Salad and Malta Pizza, both pretty good.

Huggy Bear Lido really surprised us, we chose it because it is located right next to the shore and the sea, which gives a beautiful atmosphere. The service is great, waiters smile and are funny. We had fish, it was very fresh and delicious. And also the burger was very tasty. The home-made Sangria seems to be a family tradition, it is very fresh and tasty and makes every dinner perfect. I think its a father and son family business. Great value for money!

Nobody warned us! Big portions, great taste and we thought, we just found a little restaurant with regular food. WRONG!
We had with 4 people: Onion rings, 2 starter Plates, 2 Pasta, 1 Swordfisch, 1 Thuna, different Cokes and a homemade (!) Sangria - really everthing was perfect! You want to know, how much we paid? 60 € - everything together. Unbelievable!
We come back, as a couple and with friends of course - we will recommend this restaurant for sure
