This place offers a wide range of Maltese food and international snack dishes. We tried the Mushroom Soup which was very good - but quite unlike anything I'd had before. The consistency was watery but in drinking it, it didn't feel or taste watery - it tasted of mushrooms! We shared a Pizza for a main which was just as... More

Had dinner with my wife at Smuggler's and food was served after only 15 minutes even though it was a Saturday and the place was a bit busy.

Absolutely fantastic food and a great family-run restaurant. The staff treat customers like they are family. This restaurant is frequented by people who actually live in Gozo and in my book, the locals are never wrong.

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.

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...
