We have visited the waterfront for about 12 years and love it there. Lots of choice of places to eat and drink, most offering good quality food at reasonable prices. Love the people watching especially those getting on/off the cruise ships!

Malta is a beautiful island and one will greatly miss if do not go for a stroll around the old town waterfront with astonishing views of all 'canals' around. You may also hop on a boat to take you around the other side.
