It's been a few years since I've visited Il Galeone. I was in a rush at lunchtime which the owner and staff kindly accommodated by quickly preparing a delicious pasta possibly not on the menu (I didn't have time to read). The prawns were large, plentiful and overall the pasta was great. I was able to sit near the open... More

Great food, a bit more formal than the bar/Italians spilling out onto the pavements further down the road, and the food, while a little bit more expensive, was much better. Angela, my wife, had the giant king prawns, and I had the Veg Soup followed by a lovely, perfectly cooked fillet steak. My daughter (16) had a chicken breast breaded... More

A group of friends and I visited here on our final night in Malta and we were certainly not left disappointed. The service we received was impeccable and it was a wonderful experience. I had the Filetto Paulignac for my main which was complimented beautifully with a bottle of 35 degree South Shiraz Reserve 2014 to share between us. A... More

Many restaurants have come and gone in this area yet Il Galeone seems to be resisting the test of time. The specialities it offers definitely help its longevity. The mushrooms stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese were mouth watering while the Galeone Fillet was superbly cooked. Will return to try the fish menu.

We love this Italian restaurant. It is located in a quieter end of Sliema and has a very cosy environment. The food was excellent, it was so good that we came back a second time. Shame we don't live round the corner because this would become our regular restaurant. The pasta dishes are divine and I had the best salmon... More

On the waterfront and provides a wide range of food. Locally caught fresh sea bass or swordfish together with meats and chicken. Great fish or vegetable soup. During our week, we ate there twice, which says it all. If you're in Sliema for a few days, this is a must visit.

The day we ate in this restaurant there were very few customers which was surprising as the food was superb. The staff were very welcoming and efficient. I had garlic king prawns and my wife had scampi Provençal. As well as tasting fresh and well cooked the food was very well presented. This restaurant is far superior to a number... More
