For pudding it was a first for me, Vanilla fondant, this was superb, being a chocoholic i was more... More

You read reviews and you think, it can't be that good... well the Venus Restaurant really is. A husband and wife team who look at the finer details. I enjoy quality wine and food. The wine list may not be the most extensive but there are plenty of fine wines on the menu. The food. .. oh the food! Pasta,... More

We read the reviews and figured 'can it really be that good?' The short answer: yes. We have been on Malta for about a week now and found the food not that exciting, not so much flavor. The appetizer was already very good, though we did add some salt. Then the starters came and my rabbit ravioli was really amazing.... More

I was part of a ten man party who took a gamble by going to a lovely, more up market restaurant than we should have perhaps ventured to, but we were on our best behaviour and made very welcome. The menu was so darn good I could have eaten everything on it, and with a 3 course set menu for... More

It's a nice surprise to find a good restaurant in an area were food outlets prefer quantity against quality. Good food, moderate prices, service with a smile. It's difficult to find a parking place nearby, but a short walk will do.

Nice professional staff welcomed us to this small cosy gem. A modern menu with their own twist on well known popular dishes. Soup and mussels before pork belly and venison ending with lovely chocolate fondant and fig tart, - all lovely prepared with loads of flavor. Nice wine list with acceptable prices, but missed some more choice of digestives with... More

We saw this place and liked the look of it when out for a walk. We came back a couple of nights later and were glad we did. The food is delicious and they have a decent wine selection as well. The waiters chatted with us and helped with some suggestions. We opted for a set-menu which was reasonably priced... More

A small, almost anonymous dining room serving some excellent dishes at reasonable cost by friendly & attentive staff. It's nice to eat well cooked local food so close to so many other touristy eating choices.

Looking for somewhere to eat in Bugibba the guy at the Venus restaurant explained the set menu and said we would not be disappointed. We certainly was not and returned to eat there again on another two occasions before our seven day holiday came to an end . We had the set menu the first night and chose from the... More
