Balluta Bar has it all - great food, drinks, people and sports! The owner Brian plays most American sports which for an American in Malta is vital. There's always food specials, quiz nights and a good crowd to enjoy and make new friends.

Small bar with great service and even better food. The place is small and cozy and a perfect place to get away from the noise and bustle. Always live sports on the many TVs.

One of the friendliest bars that I have been to in Malta with some very good homecooked food and a good variety of bottled imported beers. There's a real relaxed atmosphere where both locals and ex-pats hang out. There are regular events going on, which...More
