An excellent fish menu coupled with excellent wines. The hosts can help out with what you require and can suggest the best way to cook the fish and best pairing of wine. The fish chosen was always fresh. Well Done!

He stumbled across this restaurant while out for a walk. The food looked really good and this was the reason we stopped. The staff were very knowledgable and helpful with your choices. The portion size was large and it was very reasonably priced. A must if you are in the area lovely fresh seafood.

We visited Paulus twice during our recent stay in Bugibba, and both times the food was really good. I would recommend the fish stew, and the grilled calamari. The portions were large, and the service friendly, with interesting background music (bossa nova covers of rock classics). If you like fish, this is the place to go.

We went here after a busy few days work in the midst of a busy travel schedule. It was warm enough to choose an outside table and watch the moon rise. The seafood carpaccio was delicious followed by the catch of the day, prepared in the local way. The friendly and helpful staff were cheerful and accommodated our relaxed schedule.... More

Had our eye on this as a definate 'go to' restaurant on at least one night of our holidays. On arrival, there was no menu board displayed outside, but the waiter didn't mind us asking to see the menu, and didn't make us feel under pressure to stay for a meal. Got a lovely table outside, overlooking the marina, and... More

I have been on Malta seven days and goal was to eat fish every evening. Out of all the restaurants from this week Paulus is the only one that made me say um after every bit. I'm not saying the others were bad, just that Paulus was the best. Price wise it was about the same as the other fine... More

A quite restaurant with staff who are ready to help. We had the shellfish platter to share. It was nice. I loved the sfineg :) Staff also suggested what to get for my 2 year old son. Really appreciated.

Excellent meal, very helpful staff. I had one of the daily fresh fish cooked the way I wanted it. I wanted a glass of red wine so was given a taste of the 2 that were open. I thought the pricing was very good for what you got. They also called us after we left as my wife had left... More

Mussels(10€) and seafood tagliatelle(14€) was perfect, prices are normal for seafood. Service is really good. Go and try this place. You will not be sorry. I came to place after reading reviews and all satisfied me.

This restaurant was on our list of to go to places so we saved it for a special occasion, however we felt a tad disappointed with the food and pricing.
