Many restaurants have come and gone in this area yet Il Galeone seems to be resisting the test of time. The specialities it offers definitely help its longevity. The mushrooms stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese were mouth watering while the Galeone Fillet was superbly cooked. Will return to try the fish menu.

We love this Italian restaurant. It is located in a quieter end of Sliema and has a very cosy environment. The food was excellent, it was so good that we came back a second time. Shame we don't live round the corner because this would become our regular restaurant. The pasta dishes are divine and I had the best salmon... More

On the waterfront and provides a wide range of food. Locally caught fresh sea bass or swordfish together with meats and chicken. Great fish or vegetable soup. During our week, we ate there twice, which says it all. If you're in Sliema for a few days, this is a must visit.

The day we ate in this restaurant there were very few customers which was surprising as the food was superb. The staff were very welcoming and efficient. I had garlic king prawns and my wife had scampi Provençal. As well as tasting fresh and well cooked the food was very well presented. This restaurant is far superior to a number... More

Il Galeone is a restaurant which for thirty years has maintained a high level in service and food. Being a small restaurant it offers a cosy and warm ambiance. Dishes are varied and are all freshly prepared. Make it a point to pay this restaurant a visit. You will not regret it.

Dined at this place with my wife, 86 year old mother and a family friend. My mother is not only an exceptionally good cook but also very critical about just about every restaurant we take her to. This restaurant offers a selection which is refreshingly different from the norm such as the liver which was excellent. When my mother said... More

From the moment we looked through the window last night after a below par meal, we knew this was the place to eat. And tonight proved us correct! Small, friendly, subdued music with sailing decor, we were lucky to get a table as we had not booked and the majority of tables carried Reserved signs. Having eaten there we now... More
