    The staff were amazing BUT they are only operating the downstairs cafe section and not the upstairs restaurant this is NOT made clear on open table so the menu is 75% reduced seating is not as nice its a cafe attached to a hotel and booking this for a birthday dinner wasn’t as expected at all so I probably blame open table more than WB for not checking and updating their app. Disappointing

    As a vegetarian (and an absolute foodie) it's really hard finding decent restaurants with good quality food. The Waterbiscuit had a variety too chose from I wasn't stuck to have a salad or a pizza. Their service was excellent and food came out really quickly. In the midst of a pandemic they still made sure you had a pleasant dining experience with tables properly distanced to ensure a safe distance between patrons. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit them again.

    Somewhat of a 'hotel restaurant' a bit lacking in atmosphere but the food was very good with some imaginative dishes with complex flavours. Service was very attentive and a nice wine list with plenty of local wines. I would return if in St Julian again.

    The service was not good: 1. Just as we arrived we did not have enough time to look at the menue and the waitress came again and again asking for our choice. 2. It took more than 30 minutes to get the food. It took so much time that just when we wanted to cancel the order, the food arrived. 3. Chicken breast was too dry and not juicy as could be expected.

    We had a great time at the Waterbicuit. We were seated near a window table, as requested. The level of service was really high, the staff were extremely attentive and made good recommendations based on our food preferences. The food was delicious, we ordered different dishes and were top, probably the best food we tried of all the places we dinned in Malta over two days. We definitely can recommend the place for it's food, ambience and high level of service.

    Enjoyed Friday early evening meal at Waterbiscuit Restaurant. Restaurant quiet but quite a buzz from large party group in bar area. Enjoyed cocktail, reasonably priced. First class very attentive polite service, and our food was truly delicious. My salmon main course was the tastiest meal during my visit to Malta. The desserts -if you are still hungry - satisfy in terms of both taste and plate appeal. We absolutely enjoyed our meal here!

    Food was absolutely delicious , presentation was amazing too. We had a cocktail to start which was also beautiful and delicious. Prices are bit expensive but given the flavour combinations and quality of the food its worth it for a nice meal out! Just make sure you order a side with any of the mains due to portion sizes.

    Having been a regular visitor at the WB bar, I have always received impeccable service, so once a special occasion popped up, I strongly recommended WB. To be fair we were late for our booking by 45 minutes. We did call and were told no problem (restaurant wasn't busy). Yet once we arrived, we were told our booking had been cancelled. However, credit where it's due, it was sorted out. Pro's: - Menu / Starters Excellent / Cocktails perfect / Fillet of beef & Chicken perfect/ Vasi - She is a gem! / Decor Con's; - Still waiting for starters, the server came to ask if we wanted dessert as the Chef had to leave at 2200hrs. Why take bookings up to this time then? - WCs at Restaurant level closed - Were asked to use downstairs ones (OK - not a big deal - But don't expect this from WB) - Tagliata: lacked taste / slightly cold - Asked for Veg with Tagliata. Server advised this is already included. So Rucola is considered as a veg side dish? - Motor noise inside the private room - Otherwise, it was a perfect location - No communication. After meals given dessert menu. Only to then have them taken away from us from another server saying that he had warned us to order desserts before. - Given bill down the bar, yet we had to go back up again to pay as they couldn't process a C/C from downstairs. - Service blond guy- Professional yet not engaging. - While at the bar, accidentally spilt a glass. Given napkins to wipe ourselves. Nothing wrong. Yet is this good service? - Given questionnaire - No Pen along with it. - Water never poured I have no intent in this complaint, and I know I should have asked to speak to a manager while there. However, when one is celebrating an occasion, complaining is a waste of time. Please bear in mind that some of the con's reported above are not complaints, but friendly advice if you want to have a restaurant which exceeds the expectations of your guests. Guests should be made to feel like Kings. WB has fallen way short of this on Monday.

    We enjoyed the experience very much. This was a birthday dinner. Food quality is as good as other restaurants that aren't located in 5 star hotels (nothing out of this world). Food prices are quite high considering the amount of food presented on the plate. I was a little disappointed that the meat I would have liked to order was not available on the day. I am also informed that it hasn't been available for a while(it should be removed from the menus - online and in the restaurant). Desert option was to die for on the other hand! (White Chocolate Fondant, Vanilla Ice-Cream). Thank You :)

    Been to Waterbiscuit last Sunday for Lunch and we sat downstairs in the bar area. Loved the relaxed yet attentive service. For lunch, since we didn't have much time, we chose from the comfort food section. My partner had the Chicken and Mushroom Pie which she loved and still talking about it, today. I have opted for the burger. Definitely home made, juicy and tender served with cheese and gherkins in a big sesame bun. Shame we didn't have time as the White Chocolate Fondant looked delicious. We shall visit again soon, perhaps next time when we are not in a rush :) Will go for dinner and sit upstairs in main Restaurant Area.

    Fine dining at its best. Outstanding service. The evening was however somewhat spoilt by the view from the restaurant window e.g. billboards, continuous neon advertising, a bowling alley, cinema and building sites.
