Reasons for trip

As a popular tourist area, Bugibba covers quite a bit of ground as it meets up with Qwara just along St Paul’s Bay and Tourist Street runs along from the bus station. Lots of restaurants, cafes and bars but the street is very scruffy the further along you go and people are often put off exploring. However, there are some sound little bars at the top end towards The Bugibba Hotel that also provide good-value meals.

The Sailor’s Arms was recommended to us, so we just had a drink there one day – nice atmosphere and friendly staff and customers so we thought we would try the food. So glad we did. Les had swordfish, two chunky pieces with side salad and chips, and I had good old standby lasagne and chips. Definitely good choices, the swordfish cooked perfectly and a good-sized portion of lasagne. We were very impressed by the presentation, not what you would expect as a ‘pub meal’, and you cannot help but be impressed by the prices.

Lasagne and chips €8 and swordfish with chips & salad €12 – even better are the drinks with two pints of Skoll for €3 and two small bottles white wine for €5! We will certainly eat there again before we finish our holiday and recommend trying them if you are visiting the area.
