Out of the dozens of hotels and restaurants I've visited and eaten at on the islands, this restaurant was by far the best for quality, taste and value- Highly recommended.

We ate twice at Maltese Mama whilst staying on holiday at Spinola Bay. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and efficient. The menu has a good variety, including a number of traditional Maltese dishes, but is not too large. Both their food and their drink,...More

If you are on the search for authentic Maltese food in St Julian's, this is certainly a place to check out. The four of us (mum, dad, 2 boys) went out dining at Maltese Mama, which is just a few steps away from the Hilton....More

Hi Mr.Andy c I apologize for the inconvenience.I checked regarding the booking and I did not find anything under your name.Are you sure you booked to the right website? We open just for dinner so If you were calling during the day No one would be on duty to answer you.That could be the reason no one took your calls.Maybe if you tried calling after 5.30 in the evening, we would have answered immediately. When it comes to leaving a review to a restaurant you have not been to,I find that completely wrong. Myself, as a client and a manager, I would never leave a good or especially a bad review to a place I have not visited.I think that is a bit rude and shady! Please note that the address on Trip advisor is good so it would work perfectly on google maps and google earth. King regards Paulrick Spiteri I
