We ordered the fish carpaccio and fish cakes for starters. Both were very good. Well seasoned and fresh though not exceptional. Our main was the special of sea bream with sides. The sea bream was a whole sea bream cooked in the barbecue and oven. A very good size for two and the flesh really fresh and moist. The method... More

Visited the restaurant at Marsalforn, Gozo, with some friends and we were treated to the best fish feast ever. We left it to our excellent host Chris to recommend both our first course and the main course and his choice was simply superb. Gozo is renowned for the number of good fish restaurants but Arzella must rank as the best... More

We arrived early in the evening and were disappointed when advised after ordering that one of the specials we ordered was off the menu. After re-ordering, however, , the food was fresh and delicious and as seems usual on this lovely island in large portions. The views oand bay make for a very relaxing timever the harbour

My friends and I ate at Arzella twice during at stay on Gozo. The menu is small and perfect for lunch and dinner. The service that goes with the visit to Arzella was exceptional!! Day or night the location is fantastic overlooking the bay. I highly recommend this restaurant!!
