Went to Il Gabbana for dinner and had the Chicken Roulade. It was good and the service was very good. The only thing is that we are not smokers and we were surrounded by smokers and was difficult to enjoy the meal tasting smoke from cigarettes and cigars throughout the meal. I know this is the way things are here... More

I had a cappuccino here, it was a nice breezy winters day. Quite popular with the locals too. Definitely a good spot for a coffee and brunch/.breakfast.

Il Gabbana is one of my most favourite places to have lunch during my break, dinner or simply just a glass of brew in the evening. You won't find a better location in Sliema and prices are very reasonable. Although Malta is not known for great service, il-Gabbana is the exception to the rule. Our waiter Vlad must be one...

So we went to listen to the Jazz band, no saxophone. Just a trumpet, drums and guitar. Was ok but nothing special. We had food there but to be honest can't remember it........ can't have been special. It serves beer, so that's a positive, enjoy your holiday.

I read that in this place are the best eggs Benedict in Malta. If these are the best, my advice is do not eat eggs Benedict in Malta. An unassuming Licata where to go just by chance.

We arrived in Malta this morning and shortly after checking in at our hotel The Palace (which is beautiful and absolutely lives up to it's reputation), went on a quick walk to the waterside. Il Gabbana is situated right on the promenade looking directly into the open water. The staff were attentive but not overbearing. They accommodated our late lunch... More

One a very stormy morning we had two full English breakfasts watching a very rough sea .. Breakfast was good but service a little slow until reinforcement staff arrived . A great spot to watch the world go by

Having been regulars at il Gabbana, we couldn't wait to go back to the restaurant on our return to Malta. Sadly both times we ate at the restaurant recently, the service left much to be desired. The food is still good, the servings generous and the prices reasonable for a beachfront location. The service however is really poor with basic... More

We have been to Malta 3 times in the last 18 months and this place is always consistent in terms of service, food or just drinks. In a great location on the sea front. Simple but great.
