“The Place to Chill in Hot Valletta”

The GunPost - Bar & Restaurant
Ranked #119 of 260 Restaurants in Valletta
Cuisines: Mediterranean
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Valletta can be stifling hot, but the Gun Post Snack Bar, set high about the sea, offers a cool breeze and some of the best views in Valletta overlooking Sliema, Manoel Island and the harbours. This no frills, inexpensive bar offers excellent food and cold beers with friendly family service. It is worth hunting out.

Great View & could be made into a lovely spot with a bit of updating & cleaning. The table tops toi had cracked tiles on them. I cannot even begin to tell you how filthy the toilets are t has to be seen to be believed. Such a shame as the view is fantastic & this could be made into a beautiful spot with some TLC & elbow grease.

This is more of a bar than restaurant out of season. Good cold beer can be found on a hot day , as most days are in Malta! Owner will always give you a free drink "tomorrow". Owner makes fa ntastic rolls for you to order - no turned up corners here...
...look it up on your google map and go for a walk!

We ended up at Gunpost very hungry and thirsty after a long walk around Valetta. We were served at the table, but going inside to order might have been quicker, and obviously not something they minded. Food was simple, tasty and plenty - proper Mediterranean fare with proper Maltese ingredients. And the older couple running the place where really sweet, caring as much for their kitten and the lizards outside the wall as for their customers. Not the fastest moving place in the world, but with lots of character and very much worth the wait.

Stopped by for a seat and a cold beer on a very hot day. Beautiful views over the bay. A bit of shelter from the sun, when I visited, and a whisper of a breeze to cool you down.

Ladies toilet not too good and in need of attention apparently, although I have that second hand.
