“HORRIBLE FOOD”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

Pasta is overcooked, with no salt, no oil, no taste!
Octopus is overcooked too, with no taste like the pasta.
Garlic bread is the worst one tried in Malta, burned and poor in cheese and garlic too.
The wine cost 10 euro a pitcher and it's no good at all.
I had never eaten so badly!! It is also quite expensive compared to the other maltese restaurant.

“good steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Most the tables here are in a square near the St Julien’s waterfront. Bit of a tourist restaurant but the steaks were beautifully cooked. Puddings included snickers cake! Cocktails were good.

“Maltese and Italian Cuisine Overlooking the Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Scruples is a reasonably priced restaurant serving good quality food in a great location. The service was surprisingly fast and the menu varied - if you want to try Maltese food such as rabbit you can, or stick to Italian favourites. I had a salad with goat's cheese, sundried tomatoes, olives, capers and Maltese sausage - a substantial and attractive dish with wonderful flavour. My friend had the stuffed aubergines which she loved too. We could not find fault with anything about Scruples. Do not let its humble appearance fool you - the food here is excellent.
