Possibly because Arzella Restaurant has been around for years, we had never gone to it, gravitating to 'trendier' restaurants. We eventually found ourselves there last week, and what a pleasant surprise! Our shared antipasti starter platter was amazing, the seafood was so generous and fresh and the parmiggiana as good as a Sicilian version. The pasta was similarly excellent. The... More

Our dependable taxi driver Joey (PM me if you need a reliable driver for your visit to Gozo) recommended this restaurant at the end of the wharf in Marsalforn. Living in Gozo I would usually avoid places perceived as a 'Tourist Trap', but I am delighted to say this did not fall into that category. Both our pasta starters were... More

I simply do not understand why this restaurant isn't number one. Have never had anything, where the price compared to what you get is so fantastic. Taking a boattrip around Gozo (everyone should do that !) and getting your lunch here - just do it, and you will come back everytime you are on Gozo.

One has not experienced fine dining if he/she hasn't been to Arzella yet. The restaurant is arguably situated in the best location of Marsalforn (enjoying fantastic sea views), while the staff/service is simply the cherry on the cake!

Great service and amazing food, we were a group of six and all of us had the best meal of our holiday in this restaurant. Would have returned if we had more time.

The waiters are very friendly, the antipasti platters with seefood and the fish soup can be recommended, everything we got was fresh. The view is fantastic.

The food was fresh, a lot of it fried but in the tasty way :) worth a second visit. It's a little bit hidden (up some stairs) right at the end of the little harbor.

Found this restaurant by accident and was overwhelmed by the place. Service was spot on and the food is truly an eating experience. With the elevated views of the harbour and immediate seaward area this restaurant offers a truly romantic setting. I thoroughly recommend it for couples or family/groups.

We had a great time at the Arzella's restaurant thanks to Chris (the owner) and his guys. The seafood is fresh and perfect cooked! Best in town!

The great speciality of the day was the Bistecca Fiorentina... And it was really awesome. Well cooked, excellent presentation and great service by all the stuff made the evening beautiful!
