Set on the edge of scenic Spinola Bay, friendly Gululu serves up simple, traditional Maltese dishes to an always-buzzing crowd of tourists and locals alike.
You can take a seat at one of the outside tables that spill out toward the water's edge, or in the cozy upstairs space adorned with photos of local figures, and order from an extensive menu that makes the most of Malta's year-round fresh produce. Favorite local dishes include the typical Ftira – Maltese Pizza – from the restaurant's traditional wood burning bread oven; Mqarrun (baked macaroni), Aljotta (fish soup), and Spaghetti biz-Zalza tal-Fenek (spaghetti with rabbit sauce).
Order a few glasses of the local wines and linger for a while. You'll likely leave with a new love for Maltese cuisine.
