You need to walk out past the water polo pitch to get here, however, when you do it is worth it. Modern and clean, the atmosphere is cool and laid back. Good choice of food, well made and big portions and excellent value for money. We had luck there which is fine but in the evening things liven up a... More

we chose Otters after an exhausting day out. Booked late which was not a problem. When we arrived, the restaurant was very busy. Our table had a good aspect but very close to three other tables. Service was good. Food came quickly. I was disappointed with the fish ravioli entree - pasta was tough. Our mains arrived in good time.... More

If you want a reasonably-priced menu, with spectacular views, relaxing atmosphere with the sounds of gentle waves, modern ambience and EXCELLENT food, Otters has never disappointed us. Fast, friendly and a warm service that caters to our needs efficiently. My recommendation is their speciality King Prawn Soup and their diverse range of salads. An interesting mix of salad contents, such... More

We have just come back from a weeks holiday in Gozo. While we were there we ate at many restaurants all over the island. Otters Restaurant was by far our best meal! Our waiter was very good delivering quick and friendly service. Great menu and wine choice which we found great value for money.

As a regular to Gozo I have eaten in otters on a number of occasions. The most recent episode has ensured that I will never return. The setting is a beautiful one and is probably what lures most unsuspecting victims. On the Saturday evening that we attended the restaurant was moderately busy but not overly so. There were 4 of...

Thank you for visiting Otters on several times, I can assure you that you were not going to remain without bread but we even give antipasto for free with the bread, probably the service was taking a bit longer due to the busy night . One cannot recall our food bland, as for sure the restaurant would not be busy... More

Fantastic location overlooking the bay. Staff were brilliant and the food was really good. Be warned though, portion sizes are huge, local wine was good too.

We were recommended this restaurant by local diving company for it's steaks. Our group ate mixed meal of fresh fish, pasta and steaks, all of which were very good and cooked well. The portion sizes on meat and fish were very generous and certainly compared very well to what you would get in the UK on fresh tuna steak. The... More

We have been to Otters on numerous occasions - the location is superb, right by the waters-edge. On our last visit we shared a starter, lovely deep-fried Brie with Cranberry sauce - delicious. Sadly the main course was not good - I found a piece of plastic which covers electrical wire in my House Speciality duck!! I received a free... More

Thank you for being a frequent client and appreciating our food and service. We do our utmost to provide clients with genuine good food. Apparently in your review while you were enjoying the food a piece of small plastic was found in the duck, which is unacceptable. By no means no wiring is to be found near the food preparation...
