This is a really nice venue. It's smart, clean and well run. Compared to another casino we visited in Malta (no names), it stands out as being a place with traditional roots and does not seek to attract "the wrong type of crowd". Food and drinks are good value.

We had a fabulous meal here in a newly opened restaurant. The service was perfect and the meal wonderful. A win later at the roulette table completed a fantastic evening.

Lovely outside with lights seen all over St. Julian's. Inside is quite small with the smoking sections blocked off with sliding doors, which was nice. First timers receive a free drink. Be sure to bring your passport to be allowed entry.

Nice casino, different atmosphere from what I'm used to in the US but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Enjoyable night out.

Mobility access by outside lift when needed. Card games, Slot machines, bar, terrace restaurant. Restaurant wanted cash only & made us go to office to pay for meal with a card, consequently our statement said we'd used the money for gambling not eating and would not believe otherwise. We were not too happy about that.
