Description: At Ryan's Irish Pub you can pick up a casual bite to eat and enjoy your favourite beer on draught - it's a place where lunch rolls on into the evening. Ryan's Sundays parties are popular with the younger crowd and the place turns into a bona-fide club as a result.

“In need of refurbishment........”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Very disappointed with this place. Its markets itself as an Irish bar but there is absolutely nothing Irish about it. On the plus the outdoor seating is probably one of the best in the area. However, as far as atmosphere, its dead.... I have been told that they do incredible burgers, however once I stepped foot inside the place the groggy interior together with the the smell of toilets and dampness did not fill me with enough confidence to eat there....

“Taking Food to the next level with no nonsense”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Ryan's Irish Pub situated on top of a small hill overlooking the picturesque Spinola Bay in St. Julians, Malta is best known for serving the freshest best brewed ales. But on delving further one would realise that the food which is prepared at this place is serious business. Topping the list is a variety of fresh home-made mouth-watering burgers which are to die for. And for those who are more inclined to ask for more, even though one can order a double burger by paying a pittance more, one can opt to go for one of a variety of special dishes offered daily. The full-rack is not for the faint hearted but the way it is cooked would not allow anyone to stop mid-way as you will not be content until you reduce this to a pile of bones. The chef of the house is best renowned for the sauces he prepares in fact he is affectionately known as Juices. Need I say more? Service is always offered with a smile but as in the food department, the Ryan's team mean business with ...... no nonsense. Highly recommended.

“The ribs and burger are simply amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Have been a couple of times to Ryan's but when I first took their burger I ended up becoming a regular. Their ribs are fall off the bone delicious and their specials always are worth good consideration as they are superb.
