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!

Really good food here. We used it 4/5 times during our week stay. Outdoors but has cover when needed. Also patio heaters for cold nights

A pavement caffe on the sea front. Good food for lunch and evening. As this place is on the prom be careful when the sea is rough! I visited when the waves were crashing over the sea wall, spectacular to watch.

Stopped here after walking on the promenade, because the menu looked good. Initial service was fast with drinks served quickly. Then we proceeded to wait an hour to have a simple salad starter, soup special, plain pasta with butter and chicken served. Much, much too long. Even if busy, this is horrid. Won't eat again

We stopped in here for lunch as the restaurant we were heading to was full, and it was starting to rain, and we were very pleased we did. The place itself is quite unassuming, and we werent expecting anything outstanding, but we were wrong. Service was impeccable - very attentive, and always with a smile. Food was all freshly prepared... More

Was just passing by and needed a coffee. Am pleased that we chose Il Gabbana. The welcome was friendly, service efficient and coffee good. Il Gabbana is one of the few places along this part of the Sliema promenade that you can sit outside in the sunshine as most of the promenade is in shade from the buildings on the... More
