It's not the first time we've been to this amazing restaurant. Food is ALWAYS excellent with good sized portions. All the food is to die for but my favorite remains the calamari :) ... I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Keep it up Fabian & Raffaella !!!!

I've been here twice & both times my meals were delicious. The first time I ordered the seafood spaghetti & the second time the bragioli (Maltese cuisine rabbit). Both were delicious. Good portions and they bring bread on the side too. Once I saw another table getting limoncello shots at the end of their meal for free but we didn't... More

This is a small restaurant (approximately 6 tables) inside but offers outdoor seating during warmer months (with a view towards Balluta Bay). My friend and I ordered and then the lovely waitress brought us homemade humous with crackers and Maltese sausages (the best I have eaten on the island - I had to enquire where they had purchased and was...

We stumbled across this little place shortly after our arrival in St Julians as we sought somewhere to have lunch and escape the unseasonably cold wind and rain. It was full of locals which we took to be a good sign, and the food turned out to be the highlight of our all to brief stay in Malta. Our lunch... More

Ftira - like a flatbread pizza, was what we ordered, and it was just enough for two to share a light snack. A couple of glasses of wine (served by the most beautiful waitress EVER) and wonderful views of the park by the sea was so satisfying. We ate here last summer, I believe I had rabbit and the wife...

Scruples is a restaurant that was recommended to us by my wife's colleague who is a frequent visitor and one time resident of Malta. We weren't disappointed and visited twice during our seven night stay. Scruples has few seats inside and so everyone eats outside under gazebo type coverings. Perfect on a warm Maltese evening. The restaurant is just off... More

We ate here on our first and last nights in St Julian. The first night was unexpectedly excellent food at very reasonable prices – our expectations were low as the restaurant is not highly rated on Tripadvisor and we choose it because of its proximity to our hotel, the outdoor seating overlooking the bay and because its next door neighbour...
