Been here for an aperitif on Saturday afternoon. Awesome location, good cooktails and nice staff, especially the always smiling Kamelia! I suggest you to come and enjoy the beautiful sea view on the Sliema promenade!

I can say a couple good things about Il Gabbana. The view is spectacular, service very good and coffee is above average for Sliema. That said, one goes to breakfast for food. I had Eggs Benedict which were served cold, bacon insufficiency cooked, and muffin untoasted. I may return again for coffee and the view but not for the food... More

Visited for Sunday Lunch, ordered a pizza bismark supposedly with bacon but it literally had bacon fat and not one single bit of bacon. Would definitely not recommend, would only visit for a drink. Worst of all is that I complained and nothing was done about it, waitress just shrugged it off.

Dear Jacques C, First of all thanks for your review. We are disappointed to read that you were not satisfied with our food, particularly one ingredient. However we have to point out that the Pizza you ordered does not have bacon as a topping but guanciale and this is clearly stated on our menu. Had we known that you prefer... More

As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a server with a smile and were seated straight away. We opted for the white chocolate cheesecake and my girlfriend ordered the chocolate fondant from the SPECIALITY MENU accompanied with an Ice Coffee and a chocolate milkshake. After a few minutes drinks were served. About 5 minutes later they served... More

This was a charming / delightful place to grab a coffee, have some lunch or just a snack. Just sitting and watching the world good by.

The location is great, but the meal wasn't enjoyable. My duck breast was ok. My partner had a seafood pasta dish with red mullet. It was one of their 'specials'. The dish was very bland, hardly any fish to be seen but a few fishbones and scales. It wasn't an enjoyable meal, needless to say, we wouldn't return.

Had a nice dinner with my friends in Gabanna. Food was simple but very good and the waitress Monika was very friendly and gave for our dinner super good vibe!
