“Year on year simply excellent”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Go to this excellent restaurant even if its for their tourist fixed menu (many M* establishments offer fixed price in UK so don't let that put you off).

The Fine dinning menu is quite short but it is indeed fine. The staff and service are excellent too. Venus is popular so booking advisable especially Fri-Sun. It's also closed on Tuesdays. Our favorites were spicy fish cake and calamari which was perfectly cooked and seasoned or the cheeslets with a mango dip, followed by fillet of beef with a truffle sauce. Chef's medium rare was only a touch underdone for us (slight hints of blue in the very center) but so go for medium if you like some blood and no blue) Steak of this quality can easily take a less well done approach and was delicious none the less.

Well done the Venus you are the number one in the greater St Paul's bay area as far as we are concerned.

“Superb restaurant for meat lovers”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Quite frankly some of the best steaks I've ever tasted. The owner & staff are very friendly and helpful and knowledgable.
Not the cheapest restaurant around, but very good value considering the quality of the food. Highly recommended

“Gem in a dump.!!!!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Major firework displays in Bugibba now once a year but not the nicest of places in Malta but found this little restaurant by accident really and what a little gem it is.
The Sunday evening of the fireworks, busy little place but the staff the service and the food were all great and if you hate the fast food, burgers etc, this little place is great.
