My partner took me here for a romantic dinner. We had already been to quite a few restaurants nearby. We arrived early and enjoyed a lovely French red while we discussed the menu. We told the attentive staff we were not in a hurry. They respected that. The owner, Chris, arrived just after 8 pm and came to greet us.... More

A group of 8 of us turned up without a booking and they accommodated us immediately. The view from this restaurant is divine at sunset, and we were the unfortunate tourists taking loads of pictures. The food was delicious and the portions were huge, I don't think even the hungriest of boys finished theirs. We had a whole lot of... More

We went for dinner on a special occasion. The food was divine, and the place was lovely as we had a table in the open terrace. We would love to come again!

Visited this restaurant twice during the week. The stuffed calamari is a must!! The owner and staff are very friendly and take time to chat during the visit.

This is definitely a restaurant not to be missed out when visiting Gozo. The location is the best you can find in the small village of Marsalforn where you feel literally at the water's edge. Chris & his team ensure that you leave the restaurant wanting to return! The food is delicious & always 100% genuine. It's also good value... More

Our gorgeous host, Chris, came up trumps again. As a vegetarian, eating in Malta and Gozo can be difficult but Chris always comes up with something tasty, Spare ribs divine and dessert excellent, my partner tells me. What we saw of other diners' dishes looked excellent - the fish platter looked fabulous and I heard only good comments from other... More

It is not only the service which is good, but it is also the food and the location which make this restaurant one which is worthy of visiting over and over again! I recommend this restaurant particularly at sunset hours in spring time. The atmosphere is magical. Moreover, the price-quality relation is just great.
