We followed an recommandation of a local and went to the otters. The menu is impressive and the wine menu is great. I recommend the Gran Cavalier Sauvignon blanc. The sliced duck breast with chocolate is of superb quality as is the fish. We ordered lip (catch of the day) and it was nicely prepared. However, the cleaning of the... More

Nice location, food ok, not expensive, but far better options to chose from for a euro or two more. Mostly found the service better in a lot of other places and the pasta tasted pre packed rather than fresh.

The atmosphere is pleasant less crowdy than most restaurants in the centre. However if packed you might experience lack of good service and fresh food like most restaurants. Size of Portions were good. Go when not too much busy.

My wife and I just returned from a two-week vacation in Marsalforn, Gozo. The resort is very well-served with restaurants which line both sides of the "promenade" around the bay. Therefore, competition is quite intense but this is good for the consumer as they all need to peg their prices otherwise potential diners will simply vote with their feet! During... More

Went for a break holiday to GOZO . Dined for first time at Otters , we were really impressed with both the level of service and the excellent food. We will for sure visit when we go back to GOZO.

Ate at Otters during our holiday in Gozo, have dined here many times as have a holiday home on the Island. Arrived at the restaurant on a Sunday night without booking a table and they managed to fit us in without a wait. The restaurant staff were attentive throughout the night despite the high number of clients. The location of... More

Otters has a lovely setting and view over the bay. We ate there twice in our week in Gozo. Service was excellent the first time and ok the second - a bit slower but not bad. Free antipasti was a nice surprise and very tasty. Portions were big even by maltese standards - I'd recommend starter portions of main courses... More

We went here with high hopes but were very disappointed. Our misfortune was to go when there was a huge party (some 30+) expected - but we weren't told about the party, had we been then we would not have stayed. We ended up surrounded by this huge party which then meant we were "forgotten" - though, interestingly enough a... More

Unfortunately and hope this is not the case, some people like to complain for their desired discount. 1. Why should one complain when the restaurant is very busy ? (We work hard to obtain the result of a busy outlet) 2. Why should one complain because in an hour he had a two course meal ? (Are we at a... More

Having a choice of restaurants to enjoy a nice quite dinner by the sea, the four of us opted for Otters. We were seated in a quite area with excellent views. The service was perfect and the food came quickly. Two of us opted for the night special, awrata (sea bream, I believe), my wife decided on rabbit and one... More
