Lovely restaurant in The Citadel with great rooftop views

This was a nice restaurant to have lunch in. We were the only ones there when we went so were given our pick of seating. We went up to the rooftop outdoor deck which was lovely but as it was windy, we decided to relocate inside. It's like dining in a castle. I had the goat stew, which was great... read more

I returned four times to this gem of a place. Very relaxing rooftop views and perfect light menu. Friendly staff and great food.

This is a lovely bar and gift shop set in an amazing building to the left of the cathedral in the Citadella. If you can brave the spiral staircase there are a few tables on a roof terrace that give the most incredible view across Gozo. The honey ring was lovely - but bigger than I thought - so wrapped...

A fabulous little restaurant in the Citadel, We had the roof terrace to ourselves. A simple menu but so well executed. We shared a platter of cheese, olives and capers to start.Main course was the rabbit stew. Never knew rabbit could taste so good. Thank God I am not a vegetarian. Homemade wine to wash it all down. Yummy

Hard to find but worth visiting. Excellent rabbit experience with fantastic starters cheese. You wont be dissappointed with local wine. Nice lady is cheerfull, helpfull and creates home atmosphere. There are only 2 main dishes - rabbit and goat - but its enough.

During our stays in Gozo we always make it a point to visit this lovely place in the capital city, Victoria! The typical Gozitan food bites accompanied by some of their housewine makes your day a better one! Especially for wine lovers like us,this place is a must !!

We were looking for a lunch spot when we found this small restaurant amongst the workmen, cranes and diggers renovating the Citadel ares. The view from the top terrace is marvelous and worth the climb. There are tables and umbrellas but it is rather rustic! The menu is small with rabbit and goat, some pastas and cheese platters. Beer is... More

Nice people in an attractive location within the Citadel, but food no better than 'ordinary'. Tomato and garlic sauce with spaghetti very weak and lacking real flavour. Platter of cheese and tomato ok, but less than interesting. We should have tried the recommended rabbit stew!

Every time we visit Gozo, we make sure we have lunch at Ta' Rikardu. They have the traditional Gozitan lunch, with tomatoes, capers, peppered cheese, gozitan cheese, onions, sun dried tomatoes... the most scrumptious bread. Make it a must!!!

I knew about the restaurant from the previous reviews and I decided to give it a try. And I did not regret it at all. I decided for rabbit in Rikardu's winesauce and my friend took baby goat. The dishes were absolutely excellent, the rabbit was soooo juicy and the baby goat very well cooked. And the fact that from... More
