“Don't just pass by”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We've bypassed Huggy's for years thinking it was only a hotdog place, but this year our daughter persuaded us to go there for dinner one evening. What a surprise, sitting right next to the sea with a great view across the bay eating what was probably the best meal of our trip.
Best pizza I've had in years and the biggest Greek Salad ever. It was so good that we returned for another meal a couple of days later. Looking at other diners meals ( don't we all ) they all looked really nice, will be back, next time we're in Malta.

“AMAZING food!! Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Excellent food, reasonable prices and outstanding service!! What more could you ask for? Brilliant location by the sea!! Relaxed ambiance and food accomodates all taste buds. Menu ranges from pizza and pasta to quality steaks and fresh fish or seafood. I eat there with friends every couple of weeks and the food is outstanding. Never disappoints! Friendly staff and a good atmosphere. If you are on holiday and in the area, eating at the Huggy Bear Lido is a DEFINATE must!!!

“Fresh and relaxed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

My 11 year old picked dinner tonight. The choice made on closeness to the water and good selection on the menu. We chose to share the calamari and prawn plate and the catch of the day. We were really happy when they offered to fillet the whole seabream. It is simple setting in the open at ocean level. The food was fresh and delicious. They served salad and chips with the meal too. The house rose was very good as well. We were able to watch the sunset from our table. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall a great experience.

“Sun sea food ...perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

It's one of those not so small places that is tucked away.

We spent our days lounging on the sun beds dipping in and out of the warm med We had lunch there. The food was gorgeous the staff friendly and helpful. The prices were very reasonable They have free wifi but to be honest I couldn't be bothered with it I did nothing except swim, snooze and read. Perfect. Top tip. If you spend the day there get some goggles and snorkel maybe some beach shoes. It's a lovely way to spend your day.

“Great food, good prices and good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

We spotted this place while we were looking at the sea at night and looking for free wifi:)
We had some pizza which was good, the base was the best we had in Malta. The drinks are reasonably priced.
The only thing I didn't really like was that they reserve the tables by the sea so we kinda sat at the back but apart from that it was all good and the staff are very friendly and polite.

If you are going to eat here at night time and the sea is quite rough don't sit next to the sea or else you will get wet.
