We visited this restaurant on an impulse visit and we were very glad we did, it's primarily a seafood restaurant but we both had fillet Steak which was cooked to perfection (both different), if I have one gripe, it was the vegetable choice could have been better, but hey the views were magnificent and the staff very friendly, we would...

Very good restaurant if not on of the best in Gozo. The seafood is freshly caught and pasta is ridiculously good. I recommend the pasta with lobster and the fried calamari. There's also fresh fish platters that looked mouthwatering. The view from the tables is amazing and the service is also good. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are around... More

Great meal at Arzella last night - first visit to the restaurant despite coming to Gozo and Marsalforn for many years. Speciality seafood pasta to start was excellent, and the huge sea bass two of us shared was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Lovely location overlooking the bay too - a fantastic... More

We have visited Gozo seven times but never eaten here as always returning to our favorite restaurants. There was 5 of us and we had a wonderful evening. The staff were super helpful, unlike some of the other reviews, and just got on doing their job in a professional manner. Great choice of local fish and also a wonderful posiiton... More

We have been regular diners here for almost 9 years when we are on holiday in Marsalforn. It has never a disappointment. The sunset views are amazing, as is the welcome from the owner, Chris. This visit we had Beef and Mushroom risotto and the fillet Sea Bream, which was cooked to perfection. The selection of wines covers all tastes... More

The location is great, the food is not good enough for the price but the service was terrible. We were offered a table but then someone else told us we couldn't have it so I said if they were too busy we would go elsewhere and lo and behold we were given the table straightaway but on reflection we should...
