  • Didn't see the aquarium as only came in to use the cafe. It's beautiful. Amazing outside terrace and great drinks. Perfect service and no need to swim to grab a bite to eat/have a drink as was the reason we couldn't visit Cafe de mare next door. Worth a visit if you didn't bring your budgie smugglers for next door.
  • Nice place to be away from sun for a while. Still it's warm in there in every case. Quite a lot to see, very exotic fishes and other tropical animals. Our four-year-old was a little bit scared about the darkness. We liked the family photograph taken there by photographer a lot, nice memory to have!
  • Well structured and has pleasing atmosphere, but it is very small with no extra activities whatsoever to justify the ticket price. Although you can get it 3 euro cheaper when visiting other sites like the Popeye's Village or buying some tours. Try to visit at the times when they feed the fishes because it is more interesting to observe. We stayed in Sliema and found this place way too difficult to get to.
  • Very nice facility. It offers restaurant as well. Entry costs a bit more than expected but it is worth it. Aquarium has plenty of exhibits, not only fish. We also found Dory. Kids will love it for sure.
  • Interesting place for those who like sea world. There are many fishes, some sharks and other sea creatures. There is a small sector with reptiles and some spiders. The best part for me is the tunnel where sharks and other big fish are swimming above your head.
