Although it is reputed as a good restaurant in Gozo, each and every visit over the years has been characterized by blatant, downright poor service. Being charged a stratospheric price for two margherita pizzas was the straw that broke the camel's back (Venice prices it cannot charge). Avoid at all costs.

This is right next to the Calypso hotel, and far cheaper for drinks and food. The service was friendly and quick, and the resident cat is very friendly. A very pleasant place to while away an hour or two with a drink and perhaps some food.

The food is very good and not expensive. Friendly boss and stuff. Nice terrace with a lovely seaview in the heart of Marsalforn Gozo

We have been eating here for years and always get a warm and friendly welcome, overlooking the sea & small harbour. there is plenty of choice & cooked to your liking. If we are staying all inclusive we still like to take time out and eat here. Lovely friendly staff.

Went there with a group of friend and had various dishes, they were ok. I had a pizza and the dough was pretty tasteless and the topping was ok. The location is nice and the food is ok but you can find better places to eat here...

We had to wait an hour for our food - and it was disappointing when it arrived. The chips weren't cooked properly and my teenage son left half his pizza as it wasn't pleasant!

This was a return visit to this lovely restaurant on the quayside. The ambience is excellent and the food is truly great. Cooked to order and served beautifully. I would recommend this place to anyone . The cost is very good.
