I was taken here by my wife’s family, who live here in Malta! The food was delicious! If you’re in the area it is definitely a must go! The restaurant has a great descriptive menu!

Great location, with water front dining. Offers Maltese specialties at a reasonable price. Only drawback was needing a reservation. They were kind enough to accommodates without one.

We stopped by Gululu for a quick lunch. Sit outdoors on the terrace, to have a nice view of the sea! The menu includes a variety of local dishes, at a good price. Enjoy!

I felt well! The staff friendly. Can speak a lot of languages include Hungarian! The fish is very good! The drinks a little bit expensive. You can see the bill.

Great location in the bay, set over two floors with outdoor seating at the front and a balcony/terrace. We came here based on reviews after struggling to find somewhere to eat in this area on our first night in the country. Staff were friendly enough...More

Good food but you can eat better Maltese platters elsewhere, the Ftira is really good but the prices are disappointing for the variety of dishes.

Like several people have posted, noticing several empty tables we asked for seating. The server sent us upstairs where a guy sat us in a far back corner. The food was overpriced and nothing more than tourist overhyping. When your dishes don’t stand on their...More

Excited to try this restaurant since it was considered the best Maltese cuisine in 2017. I couldn’t be more disappointed. Should have turned away immediately at the entrance since the lady greeted us saying “Go upstairs and try to find my colleague to help you.”...More
