My partner and I made a snap decision to eat here as there was a sudden rain shower which seemed to send the surrounding outdoor Restaurants into a taking spin. One even announced it was full, it obviously wasn't. Pleasantly greeted by staff who were prompt with service. Noted that minimum compulsory individual bill is 18 euros (rather unusual). Ordered...

I visited San Giuliano Restaurant on four separate trips to Malta. The original recommendation came from the hotel. The food there, is sort of "hit or miss" as you never know if the food you previously order, will be the same. If you request a specific table, instead of trying to accommodate your request, you get all kinds of excuses... More

Beautiful site overlooking Spinola Bay, very romantic, dinner would be al fresco, but since clouds were threatening, all windows were closed, just in case. This did not spoil our enjoyment of the very tasty Italian fare, accompanied by a fine wine. Good food, excellent service, you could not ask for more. Highly recommended!

2nd time to this restuarant, The atomosphere and views are great. However, i feel its pretty pricey compared to other good restaurants on the island and quite limiting expensive wine list.

Went there for dinner, as a bit of a special occasion. The food and the staff made this occasion even more special. Food was excellent, service was great. There was a lot to chose from in the menu, we went for the Swordfish cappacio, tagliatelle with salmon for starters, mixed grilled fish and rack of lamb for mains. All can... More

I have been visiting Malta for over 40 years and this is my first occasion to have visited one of its oldest restaurants San Giuliano in St Julian’s Bay. I was taken for dinner by some very close friends and was impressed, the dining room is situated looking over St Julians Bay and in the summer is open with plenty... More
