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

We visited this restaurant twice last week during our stay on the island, once was good, the second time was not so good. The restaurant has a lovely setting and view with relaxing music and tables with good cover from the sun. On our first visit we were served drinks promptly, food was very good and although the service was... More

It was fine for Sunday lunch although the waiting staff could be a little more friendly. The food was fine, good portions. Wouldnt go for a special occasions but considering the price, I would visit again.

Great value for the money. I ordered a fillet of dentici recommended by a friend of mine who lives here and it was a very delicious meal. Mind you that portion in Malta in general are quite big so it was more than enough.

The view is great. Everything else is... not good. Cocktails were poor, selection is poor and absolutely uninspired.

Thank you for visiting Otters. To our estimated clients, we would like to inform everyone that on the 19th and 20th September Otters organised the event Octoberfest which consisted of Bavarian beer and Bavarian food. According to this, our usual menu was limited and we could not provide everything since we issued a seperate menu for the occasion. Bands and... More
