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

It took them 15 minutes to take our order and as we waited they brought out three complementary dips; pork, sundried tomatoes and gozo cheeslet - the pork dip was bland and tasteless, the other two were salty and not good. We waited for our food for more than hour, when we finally gained their attention and asked about the... More

Menqa L'Antika never disappoints. Thanks Gordon and Joselle for consistently providing us with some of our most memorable meals of our holidays in Marsalforn. Highlights as always the Gozitan cheese skewers and the mushroom tart. Best pastry ever!

Food was simply superb. Ate in 10 different restaurants locally. 3 stood out as excellent, this one, Chez Amand and Oleanders. My wife thought the rabbit livers were amazing. For me it is the simple things done well such as the house freshly made spaghetti with anchovies and olives. Great service from Josetta.
