Good food bad service.

Went there for a nice lunch but it was quite ruined by the bad service. Restaurant was full and there were only 2 waiters, a lovely foreign guy and a grumpy local girl who we presumed was one of the owners. She kept shouting at the foreign guy who was really doing a great job and for me that is... read more

My fiancé and I don't have the habit of changing restaurants. We find a good restaurant and stick to it, as most of the times we tried to change, we always ended up being disappointed. This past Summer we were in Gozo for the day and we went to Marsalforn for a swim. In the afternoon we got a bit... More

We were staying at an apartment across the road from Otters and we at Otters for 3 meals. There were 3 adults and 2 children in our family. We used the 'Malta Discount Card' and received 50% off our first meal and then 25% off the following meals. We had the seafood platter each time and it was beyond superb!!... More

First day of the christmas vacation we wanted to have something small. My GF ate a stupped and baked Gozo cheese starter set and I had a Lampuki pie (traditional Maltese fish pie). Very good. Nicely arranged. Plus tea and coffee for about 24€. And you can sit directly at the beachfront. 2 meters. Great.

Otters is located at the west (left hand) end of Marsalforn bay. Some of its tables are indoors but most are on a rock platform just above the level of the sea (in rough weather the tables near the edge have to be moved back) and shaded by square umbrellas that touch edge to edge. It is an ideal place... More

Called in for lunch today. Very nice setting to the left of Marsalform Bay. Excellent menu but we chose salads. The Gozetan cheese salad was superb. Local cheeses set on a bed of rocket. Could not be faulted. Good service and swift , although the restaurant was at near capacity. Will try Dinner here one evening. Would recommend.

It's difficult to review somewhere based on a single visit but the efficient staff led us to a spotlessly clean table and the chicken salad and fried brie we chose were both first rate. View of waves over the bay was amazing as it was the day after the hurricane force winds.

Out walking, we were looking for a place with a pleasant view that could offer us some shade on a hot, sunny October (yes, really!) afternoon and we hit bullseye with Otters! The young lady who took our order was civil and knew her food. We chose mainly from the recommended menu ...and we weren't sorry! Food was excellent, portions... More

From the fabulous view to homemade pasta, I'd say it's hard to beat. Great hospitality and service. And don't forget to look at their amazing dessert.

On 20 September we booked a table at otters and we only got to know about the October fest when we arrived at the restaurant as booking was made by phone and no one advised us on such event and since we do not live in Gozo we were not aware of this! Although food is ok, service is of... More
