This little Gem is amazing, set in a historic building. You clime spiral staircase to reach the rooftop, by god it's worth it. The view of the city is breathtaking. The food is delightful...so fresh and tasty. The staff were helpful, friendly and kind.

After walking around the Citadel, we found this lovely restaurant with a wild top floor terrace. The stairs up to the roof are not for the feint of heart. I took my flip flops off coming down. However, it was a great view and it was an experience you won't get in every country. They needed more umbrellas though as... More

I had the best Maltese/Gozitan platter of my week in Malta and Gozo here, and I tried more than a few :-) Three different and excellent varieties of cheese, two types of really good tomatoes, olives, capers, bread etc. I sat on the outside terrace on the second floor, which has stunning views of the citadel, although you have to...

Let's make this easy: eat here...and buy local treats to take away and eat later...and come back when those run out because you need some more. Now for the disclaimer: My wife & I ate dinner here towards the end of a long day,and we had already gotten hooked on local, fresh produce and prepared foods. Throughout our trip, we... More

Lovely place in the citadel of Rabat (Victoria) with a cool ground floor, bright first floor and upper terrace with great views. We go once every year and are welcomed like old friends! We can't believe they remember us. We always have the same dish......the sharing Gozo platter. It's a taste sensation consisting of fresh & sundried tomatoes, capers, sweet... More

Eat here. On the open roof patio that overlooks the rest of the citadel. The atmosphere makes this restaurant magnificent. We shared the Gozitan platter, with local cheeses, sun dried tomatoes, onion, olives, and capers. I also enjoyed a bowl of vegetable soup, which was the perfect light dinner. The locals wines are also a treat (try the red!). We... More

Went there for lunch with mates, spaghetti rabbit had no rabbit in it, the ravioli were ok but the portion so, so small and overpriced, the Gozo peppered cheese salad for two, was just enough for one person and more than half of it consisted of unseasoned chopped onions and tomatoes. The local wine was horrible. Overall the food left... More

Made a very special effort to go here (after rave reviews in my Bradt travel guide). Staff were un-welcoming, forgot two requests for more bread, virtually ignored us when we tried to attract their attention. The cheese was amazing and the Gozitan platter promised so much - but let down by poor service.

If you want delicious food, with charming (albeit typically somewhat laid-back) service, in a gorgeous and typically Gozitan-style ambience, at tremendously great value-for-value... then I couldn't possibly recommend Ta' Rikardu any higher. Also... this is about the 12th year running that I've stopped over here for lunch.
