Went to Balluta bar last weekend the bar is small maybe 30 seats but the place was full and great service . It's the best bar in the area we went to, other places around where not very good!

Small bar with great service and even better food. The place is small and cozy and a perfect place to get away from the noise and bustle. Always live sports on the many TVs.

One of the friendliest bars that I have been to in Malta with some very good homecooked food and a good variety of bottled imported beers. There's a real relaxed atmosphere where both locals and ex-pats hang out. There are regular events going on, which you can check out on their Facebook page.

Great food, large beer menu. Not a big place but cozy and always full. Want to watch American Sports this is the place. You want to want any football match this is the place, they serve bagels and open for lunch and serve dinner all night.

Living in Malta, my local bar has firmly been established as this one. For many reasons not least the continuous friendly and consistent service, nothing is ever too much trouble. The food is outstanding, in all the times I've eaten here I've genuinely never had a complaint. Homemade lasagne is a winner and the salads are always crisp and fresh!... More

We attended the Balluta Bar to watch a Rugby Game on the 21st of March. My how service levels have gone downhill as has respect for customers. We were very angry with the host who it seems thinks its normal practice to take money from a customers table while they are eating. We will be steering clear of this joint... More

This bar is like many in the back streets of Sliema / Balluta in that it's tiny. It's popular but at the top end price wise when it comes to its drinks but it does have a good selection of wines. Example, one Friday night, pint of Cisk & just asked for a glass of red wine, nothing specific but... More
