Absolutely the best restaurant in Buggiba. We ate there twice on our recent trip. First for my wife’s birthday and we liked it so much we had to book again. This is a family run restaurant and so the staff are ever so friendly. The...restaurant is modern and very clean. The food is some of the best we have experienced whilst holidaying. On the first visit we had the chateaubriand which was amazing and very filling for the two of us. On the second visit we had the chicken and the sea bass to try out dishes at the cheaper end of the menu. Both were very delicious. Starters and sweets were also very good. Also have to mention the Tia Maria coffees they made up for us. Hot coffee and cold cream wish we had asked for them on our first visit. Venus is priced slightly higher than some of the very average restaurants we ate at but the quality and ambience formed by the staff is well worth the extra.More

The service is amazing en the food and wine are fantastic! We have been there twice in 8 days. The restaurant is a family business and the brothers Andrea and Roberto are doing the best they can to make you comfortable. Their dad is the...chef and their mom is the hostess of the restaurant. We would like to thank them for two amazing nights and we recommend Venus Restaurant to everybody in St. Pauls Bay!More

We had an exceptional experience at the Venus Restaurant, which was made special by the brilliant service and top quality food! We received complimentary bread starter, with oil, olives and hummus and I had a Beef fillet for a main course, which was cooked to...perfection and melt in my mouth. My partner had Duck, which he thought was really tasty and both meals were presented beautifully, served with vegetables and potatoes. I would recommend this to anybody looking for quality service and food. The meal, 1 glass of wine and 2 beers came to £75 which was reasonably priced for the overall experience we received. I would highlight that the location of the restaurant is on a busy corner, which is noisy, which may spoil the ambiance for some guests but I personally didn’t feel this interfered with my experience at this restaurant.More

My wife and I ate here last week. Lovely food. Really enjoyed it. Bit pricey though. But would go back, so I guess it's worth the price ;-)

We visited this restaurant twice on our three night stay in Malta. We had booked ahead via facebook messanger and loved it so much booked again for the following evening. The service was exceptional and we was made to feel very welcome. We both ordered...Scallops and Stuffed Red Grouper on the first night off the Special board and it was all delicious. The second night I had a fried local cheese starter from the special board and then the rack of lamb. My husband had the Octopus and Fillet Steak from the main menu and again everything was delicious. We also both ordered a cooked Oyster to try and could have most definitely eaten more of them. We were also given bread with homemade hummus before both meals came and then a Limoncello at the end of the meals. The restaurant itself is only small but I think this makes for a nicer dining experience. I would definitely recommend you book ahead as we saw quite a few walk ins being turned away and this was quite early as we dined at 7pm.More

Visited this restaurant whilst on holiday with family. Fantastic seafood, we had the salted Seabass for two, and it was beautiful. We also had the chicken and chorizo which was full of flavour. Local wine was great and the Service was attentive and friendly. We...had a great meal out and would not hesitate to recommend to others.More

Food was exceptional, great service. Did not have the bottle of red wine we wanted but the knowledgeable waitress offered an alternative which was excellent. If you're in the area, don't miss out.

Best restaurant tested in Malta so far (after 10 months on the island). The gourmet food is exquisite and very fine. The service is perfect. The staff is top notch, taking care of us, even when we are just passing by in the street (especially...the brothers, who are adorable). The prices are very affordable. I recommend this restaurant. Romantic atmosphere or dinner with friends/family, there is room for everyone! Thank you to the whole team for making our evenings so special when we come to Venus RestaurantMore

Wonderful food, service and ambience in this family run restaurant. It truly was the best meal of our holiday. A little gem amongst the standard fair available on the busy strip. We took the recommendation of a whole salt baked seabass to share and did...not regret it. Enjoyed the theatre of desalting and filleting at the table as well. We highly recommended this restaurant to others at our hotel and to anyone reading this.More
