Best Full English in Malta? – Il Buco (St Julian’s)

Don’t look too closely.

I had an uneasy feeling about this place when I walked in the door.  Firstly I was the only patron under the age of 70.  Secondly, the three other patrons were all drinking Bavaria at 12pm on a Sunday and nobody was eating anything.  It is supposed to be a restaurant/cafe but was looking a whole lot like an old man’s bar from where I was standing.  Anyway, I decided to give it a go.

The guy was very friendly, breakfast turned up without too much of a wait.  €4.50 for breakfast including coffee.  (Which was good).  Milk with the coffee was bad.  (Which was bad).  Eggs burnt, bacon an unusual colour, cheap sausages. (Which, obviously…).  Look, it is not gonna win the prize.  This place gets good reviews for it’s Italian food, and they are good people, but I suggest you look elsewhere at breakfast-time.
