Group dining? Here are 10 spots on the Maltese Islands you should definitely check out
Get your friends together for this one.

Kristina Cassar Dowling

Dining with friends is always great. Unless you’re crowded or squashed into a small space where you can barely get in and out for a quick trip to the loo or to fuel your pesky smoking habit. If you’re a larger group, you’ll need room to move around! These super spots cater for larger groups with #foodiegoals on their minds.

Henry J Beans

Boys night? Head to Henry J Beans for an evening of ribs, wings, beers and a good, good time! Don’t forget to book a designated driver… aka taxi back home.

Ocean Basket

Ladies, you deserve something a little more vibrant. Ocean Basket is the perfect spot to get some sushi, a glass of wine (or five) and enjoy your friends in a bright restaurant overlooking the sea.

Tal-Familja

Tal-Familja was made for family meals, with a name that suggests nothing more and a menu booming with fresh fish, shells and other non-seabearing dishes. Take nanna here too, she’ll love it.

Picky eaters in your group of pals? No sweat! Head to Carob Tree food hall for a food selection that’s out of this world! No one will go hungry with the Asian, Indian, Italian and typical fish and meat restaurants on offer.

Brookies

Quick trip to Gozo with the buds before Christmas? This calls for a booking at Brookies - big enough for your entire gang to chill and enjoy the food, and of course, plenty of drinks.

Ta’ Karolina

If you’ve got family in Gozo, get the lot together for a special meal at Ta’ Karolina. Book your table inside or outside, weather permitting, but make sure you stop and stare at the view with your favourite aunt.
