We partly live in Malta and from time to time try to have dinner there. One can be lucky and have very good food there, especially fish. However, in most cases food had been average, the service had been lacking and meals took ages to come. Much of it however is compensated by the marvelous view from the terrace overlooking... More

Another excellent restaurant in this little enclave! More old skool than Tarragon but equally good with excellent silver service & superb food & wine - really lovely in a vintage way. Joyce was fabulous & made us feel like we were old friends! Highly recommend this charming place.

The Gillieru was once the place 'to go to'. Beautiful location, massive facilities able to cater for many patrons without squashing them together, offering a magnificent sea view that must be the envy of most Maltese and Gozitan restaurants.

All I can say is excellent tasty food served in a very reasonable time. Polite helpful staff and always service with a smile. Great views into the bay from the outside area and a wonderful, cosy drinking area.

We have been going to this restaurant for more than 3 years and besides the great view it offers, they have the most delicious mussels. The customer service is friendly, helpful and genuine, it offers an ideal place for good food and embracing atmosphere.
