This place on the St Julian’s seafront promises Maltese food for the beginner. This is because not only is there a good selection of the range of Maltese foods (from dips, soups, meat, fish , pasta dishes, vegetarian options as well as desserts) but each is explained clearly. A stand-out is the Maltese ‘pizza’ – open flat bread with toppings-... More

I have to say I was impressed with this place. I don't often eat local dishes when I go out as I was under the impression they're not as good. However I was really impressed. My salad was incredible, the restaurant has a really funky colour scheme of blue and yellow and tiles (love!) and the wait staff were really... More

Unsure why is this popular. Food was greasy not freshly made. Service was poor and slow. It's the view that you would pay for but I would not again.

I went there for a snack last week and I ordered the whitebait with a glass of house wine. The whitebait was reasonably priced (€6.50 I think) and quite good but the glass of wine was €5.50. When I questioned this as the most expensive housewine I've ever had, the waiter Aaron insisted this was the price. However, when I... More

Please accept our apologies for the above. It is not our normal practice to suggest the most expensive wine. We will certainly be looking into this internally to ensure that this does not happen again. We do hope that on your next visit to Malta you will consider visiting us again. Should you have any further feedback you may also... More

After reading reviews booked online for dinner with the other half. Fairly busy, but staff attentive and took time to explain specials. Starters were amazing. Portions plentiful. Would return. Recommended.

Had dinner here on a busy Friday when trying to find some typical Maltese tastes. Had a choice of squid/calamari pasta that was nice and well-cooked in a room with unusual tables and a good choice of beers. The place seemed family-run and the service was a bit slow and confusing at times, but the location is quite nice.

It was recommended to us as a restaurant to have good Maltese food. We were disappointed with the food quality (had rabbit, mussels and sea bass). Its location and internal decoration are excellent. Service needs improvement and pricess are a bit high.

Well done for the high standards of food service. The beef medallions were super perfect just like home made food. Will highly recommend Gullulu to those looking for a restaurant offering Maltese dishes
