“V good despite some poor reviews!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

We went with friends who vouched for good quality food and we we're disappointed.
A warm evening, a table outside with the sound of the sea below us, 1st class service throughout and food prepared just how each of us ordered it.
The 4 meals were, fillet steak 250gm, 1/2 duck a la orange, lamb chops (all 8 of them with mint sauce) and veal in mushroom and cream sauce.
There were 2 bottles of house Rose wine and 2 pints of Cisk and the bill came to just over 100 euro which we considered t be good value.
Would I recommend it, you betcha!!!!!

“Great Seafood Platter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

Every time we visit Malta we do a pilgrimage to this venue for lunch.
We always opt for the sea food platter as is is delicious and one does two people for only 8 euros.
This recent visit has again not been disappointing, a large platter of smoked salmon, prawns, octopus and mussels in their shells with plenty of salad and delicious local fresh bread. If in the area at lunch time would really recommend it. Go on spoil yourself. Great views as well

“Poor house wine”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

We were recommended to eat here, had a drink while waiting for it to open, the house wine was not nice, so we left. Did not stay to eat. Was disappointed in wine so did not wish to eat here.

“Totally fabulous food and such friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Stayed in Malta for a week and as not been before asked the hotel to recommend a restaurant. He booked us into Gillieru's in St Paul's Bay. The staff were so friendly on arrival and the food was amazing. The portions were huge and the welcome even more so, in fact we ate there twice in our week. The bill was a surprise too, very good value for money, would highly recommend.

“What can we say.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Fantastic, superb .......... We were well looked after by all the staff during our stay at the Gillieru Hotel we ate in Gillieru Restaurant every night. Good, service and views were absolutely superb. If you want good food this is the place to go but don't be in a hurry as good food takes time.

Thanks to all the staff for making our holiday.
