We didn't eat at every eatery along this street but there are so many and they all look good. What a fab street. Worth just wandering along for the vibes.

Traditional balconies

Nice street but not the only one where you can see the old buildings with the traditional balconies.

The Gut
Jul 2020
Wonder down to the bottom end of Strait Street and you will come across one of the best locations on the island for food, drink and entertainment. The place has been re-named by the old name of Strait Street, The Gut and there you will find a number of authentic, well designed and fun places. At the corner one finds N Japenese Bistrot, followed by Alchemy Cocktail Bra, S:UN Korean Gastro Pub, Silver Horse by Sonni and Kennedy BAr and Bistro. If you're lucky you'll catch some live band performing on the outside stage or on the theatrette inside the Silver Horse. For any tourist visiting Malta, this is a place not to be missed.

The tourist street
Jan 2020 • Solo
This is one of the main tourist streets in Valletta. There you can find tourists from around the world. This street has everything you may need from souvenirs many restaurants and fruits shops and stored of every type. Lovely coloured balconies decorate this street. Just look up and enjoy.

Very touristy
Dec 2019
It's a super touristy and busy street. The shops/restaurants here are a mix bag. But they sure did a great job decorating it for Christmas and New Years. We like going through the side streets since they are less busy, but at night, Strait Street does make for a very romantic stroll (especially with the Christmas lights!)

This interesting street is full of lovely old buildings. It is a pleasure to walk down just to admire the coloured balconies.

Once Known as The Gut
Feb 2020
Once known as The Gut by visiting sailors this very narrow street running parallel to Republic St was once a den of iniquity! Home to prostitutes bars and gambling it is now a very respectable street which during daytime is very quiet indeed.
