We arrived just before opening time, but were invited in to take a seat and wait for the kitchen to open. The person who served us was very friendly and very helpful. The food was excellent and worth the wait. My tip - get the main sized serving of the rabbit livers, they were fantastic!

This is one of a line of restaurants along the east side of Marsalforn where the fishing boats moor up. You could literally pick one of 7 or 8 restaurants here, all with the usual sandwich board signs outside, it can be a bit of a lottery. So to save any dithering, go to this one. Very friendly.

Last night in Gozo we wanted somewhere close so went downstairs from our hotel and found Menqa L'Antika. Silvano was our waiter he was just so lovely even gave us a complimentary drink at the end of what was a delicious meal! Great way to finish an incredible trip.

I went to this restaurant last night for the first time. I ate suckling pig with Mediterranean vegetables and celeriac mash it was delicious. I didn't have a starter but had home made fig ice cream as a desert this was also delicious. The waiters and waitress were very friendly and knowledgeable, in all a very pleasant evening. I would...

Just fancied a rocket salad, ended up having some lovely fresh tuna with it! It was divine, perfectly cooked tuna and the salad was to die for. My partner had a whole hake fish, fresh and also cooked to perfection! Superb!

The menu here is the big attraction - it was incredibly difficult to choose from so many unusual and interesting choices, with many Gozitan and Maltese specialities and a good selection of vegetarian choices. The service was excellent and very friendly. The complimentary appetisers and our chosen starters would not have been out of place in some of the finest... More

Returned back to this restaurant having had a super meal last year and waited upon like royalty. So different this year. The place was deserted for Supper at 8.00 and this should perhaps have told us something. We ordered king prawns, kangaroo (adventurous little boy), cuttlefish and calamari risotto and ravioli for main and snails and various Gozo specials for... More

Nice sitting, friendly staff, good local wine. Took fish, expensive, but wasn't very sure about the freshness...
