A very welcoming restaurant, even for a late lunch. Beautiful view across the bay to accompany delicious fresh seafood choices, and helpful advice on the menu and wine list. Very good value too.

We had fried calamari (chewy), fried neonatali fish cake (OK, but nothing special), and three kinds of pasta (all of them very good and much above average). With good bread, tasty amouse bouche and a nice selection of wines with very good prices, this was a good stop for lunch. Not to mention the nice view of the sea. All... More

Firstly the welcome by the owner Mr Chris. He goes out of his way to please customers. The food is excellent in all ways. One finds a good selection of both local and foreign wines which are expertly recommended with the selected dishes.

This restaurant is really typical!! Gozo inhabitants goes there so be confident. The view on the bay is nice, and the starters are full of flavours. Fishes plates are also good but only served with fries and salad: not the best... Only if you are addicted to fish and chips!!

This was a very good meal. We went as a group for a Christmas dinner and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Meals were excellent, service was top notch, the view is as many before me have described.
