We got some drinks here one day and the place is pretty average, not too bright inside but seating outside lets you watch the world go by. Plus free WIFI too.

Needed somewhere in the neigbhourhood for a simple, straight forward meal. I was pretty sure reading reviews this was it, and no regrets. Service was solid and quick. Fish, chips...beer. Prices were excellent. I was sold!

The place to be if you want a drink and some food in the evening when you are off the boat. Or the morning breakfast prior you start your day at the boat. Well if you don't feel like being on the boat during lunch time, old city pub is the place to go too ;)

Old City Pub is great! Fantastic for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a snack. Could not recommend this bar highly enough! Darren, Lino and family do a great job running it. Darren is a fantastic cook and you can't beat the prices! Cheaper than cooking at home (and with the added bonus of no dishes!). Full of genuinely lovely people!

The appetisers and the antipasti would not stop coming and by the time the main courses were served, we were so full. The food is excellent and so is the service. The place could do with an update however.

You just have to love the Old City Pub. Great for breakfasts, coffee, mid morning snack, lunches and then of course evening food.

We have eaten in the evening a number of times without booking and when a large... More

Great company, food is always fresh and the service great.One normally has to book before hand if you want fresh fish or Maltese Fenkata (Rabbit Stew). A great experience not to be missed.

WOOOWWWWWW to start describing the amount of sea food we ate and the amount of drinks it s unbelievable and to let you know as well. between 8 people the bill was 180 euro and I must say if we ate and drank all those things in another restaurant it would have been for sure over 250
