Good food, great location and reasonable prices at Paprazzi Bistro. Typically when you see trendy themes and clever names on dishes the restaurant fails on food quality; this is not the case with this restaurant.
Primarily a menu of pizza, pasta they also feature menu items like chicken and steak. Don’t be put off by the clever names, the pasta with spinach and shrimp certainly surpassed expectations. If you can get past the attempt at being clever with the naming conventions the restaurant actually has great food at reasonable prices.
Suggested dish: you’ve got to try the ‘Bring on Kevin’, mussels in a white wine, cream and parsley sauce (I had to go back the next day to make sure it was as good as I remembered). It definitely was and I often dream of this dish a year later…
The restaurant overlooks Spinola Bay and is a great laid back atmosphere. Decorated with posters of iconic movies and movie stars, the decor is reminiscent of the name without being too trendy to the point where you think you’re in a chain restaurant in the US. The interior doesn’t have ton of tables and has a few on a balcony area (that only seat about 2-3 comfortably but allow you to enjoy the weather with the convenience if being close to your waiter (and the bar).
There is also a huge outdoor deck area where you can dine or just grab drinks which offers some of the best views of the scenic bay. This is the perfect spot for a larger group with big tables and incredible views with a laid back atmosphere. Even if you’re just looking for drinks this is a great spot right in St. Julian’s.
The restaurant is open from 10am to midnight everyday of the week.
