We were a group of around eight people accompanied by a dog. Not only were we welcomed but the waitress brought a small bowl of water for our four legged-friend. Whilst waiting for our food we were served with a Maltese platter. Food was highly delicious and very well presented. Very clean and warm environment and to end it all... More

We were made very welcome despite being the only diners mid-week in October. The free appetiser of bean salad, bread and tomato spread was very tasty. Starters and mains were well executed and presented but the stars were the desserts. Great range of ice cream and the chocolate mousse is to die for.

Welcomed by the smell of freshly prepared food. The place is nice and quiet, ideal for couples and romantic dinners. The lobster, quail and duck were perfectly cooked! Worth the wait!

Marsalforn has lots of places to eat but Gordon and Joselle have ceated something a little different here and the quality and standard never fail to be excellent with daily specials as well as the extensive menu. The wine list has several Gozo wines which are well worth sampling. Chocolate chilli ice cream always rounds off my meal! Delicious!

Nice to have one or two more veggie options on the menu (for my girlfriend whose been getting a bit weary of mushroom risotto and cheese pasta) - though don't expect much more than that - it's still largely for meat eaters. My bragioli was good - very filling. A good option for marsalforn.

Being a vegetarian who prefers vegan food, I was very happy to find this restaurant. To enjoy a well created and prepared vegan dish in such a setting was a real pleasure. Full marks for being an oasis amidst what is good food on Gozo but very much the same repeated in most places. We will definitely head here when... More

... at least for us. We had good food at Pulena as well, but this Menqa L'Antika's was just a tad better, with a more down to earth feel to it and getting tastes and everything just right. Service was super-helpful and knowledgable, nice dips and spreads with the bread and the chocolate dessert with the homemade ice cream was... More
