We arrived midday in Sliema, and having got rid of our bags in our room it was out to stretch our legs and to get our bearings...so off we went walking the promenade to St Julians, one of MAlta's bustling tourist resorts with its bays and nightlife in abundance. A pleasant stroll along the promenade, checking out some restaurants on the way for later that week.
Having walked the long coastal route to St Julians - about an hour ambling, it was late now anfg getting quite cool. We decided to walk the quick route back, cutting up by the square uin Balluta By across the back strrets to Sliema. This is much quicker of course (thankls for that tip Steve) about 15 minutes - well exactly it took us when I timed it another night. Another plus is that you get to see some typical maltese streets with the colourful balconies.
The remains of Villa Cassar Torregiani!
I took this photo so that everyone out there can see the horrible huge buildings sites that are being built in Malta. Here once there was an old huge house called Villa Cassar Torregiani. When my dad was a kid he used to go to play tennis in the tennis courts of the house as he knew the son of the person who used to own the house. I always remember this house and the few houses adjacent to this Villa standing there majestically.
Today even though the authorities said that they are not going to pulled down the Villa but are going to restore it. However theys till built behind this horrible construction that ruined the surroundings. This is seen in the photo !
This is one of my favorite places to eat a fry-out (unless I don;t have some healthy conscience and start feeling guilty) hehe well here the food is all fried from chips to potatoe wedges. Here one can eat pieces of chicken in batter fried with this tasty batter. One can eat chicken in a bun or just take pieces of chicken. They also have spare ribs and chicken tighs. However I love going here to eat the potatoe wedges which are called potatoe surprise! casual
Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood in a Romantic Setting
This restaurant is situated on Spinola Bay. It has more outdoor seating capacity than indoor and when the weather permits anyone will choose outdoor to indoor. The setting is one of a kind with the old buildings and the little fishing boats.
Raffaele is open all day for lunch, late lunch and dinner and they offer a variety of pasta, pizza, local dishes and fresh seafood.
My favourite dish is fresh fish of the day with salad and jacket patatoe.
