Quality food at a great location

A group of seven were catered for on several nights and on each occasion all our food was to a good or very good standard. I had argentinian steak which was perfection. The chef did this at the table. One of the better sea front restaurants at a fair price. Good local wines too

I read a number of reviews about Ta'Pennellu and ate here this evening. The food was outstanding; we ordered the chef's special rib eye steak and the fillet. Asked for them rare and the chef cooked them for us on an outside brasserie next to our table and both were spectacular. Service was first class and the chef conversed with... More

Better than your average restaurant that touts for you to come in off the street. The service was good and after we picked our dishes the food was pretty good too.

Perfect service, delicious and fresh food, excellent wine, all at an extremely good price. Only regret not staying in Gozo longer to eat here again and again.

In Marsalforn you really are spoilt for choice with restaurants but you would do very well making sure you ate here as the food and the wine are equisite. It is a family run restaurant and prides itself on this. The owner Anthony along with his dad, Andy and brother Daniel made our visit extra special.

It was my first time in this restaurant... But definitely it will not be the last. The waiting staff (probably the immediate family of the owner) were helpful, cordial and friendly yet not invasive. We were offered bruschetta with soft cheeslets and all food served was exquisite ...upon the chef's recommendation ( who was also very welcoming) I opted for... More

Had a couple of meals here. Met the chef twice who took time to talk about his food and his passion to cook fresh food. Had salmon pasta for lunch which was absolutely delicious and had super nice mussels for a starter and barracuda for main for dinner. Simply delicious. Excellent value.

I came to this restaurant with my family for lunch and had the salmon pasta. It was so lovely that we decided to come back again for dinner. It was so nice having the chef come out and talk about the food and take pride in his dishes. The food we ate was gorgeous, the mussels were delicious.

We were on a sightseeing bus on Gozo and stopped at Marsalforn as we were getting hungry. We needed a quick meal as the next bus was only 45 minutes away, and I'm sure that we could have eaten in that time, but... We sat outside and only ate from the snack menu, but before we started we were given... More
