Limited menu but great location

Located within the walls of the citadel. Good views across the island. Very limited menu. Rustic home cooked style food. If you don't like rabbit or goat this restaurant probably isn't for you.

We keep returning to this lovely place, more often than not enjoying gozo cheeselet ravioli and a fresh gozitan platter on the terrace with a view of Victoria. The hosts are most gracious, always bringing our pet dog a big bowl of water and stopping for a chat. The homemade cheeselets and ravioli are second to none. The homemade wine... More

Food was great and price very reasonable. Service was excellent and the hostess was absolutely lovely. Because we had to wait a while for our food, she brought us an exquisite plate of cheese, which we did not have to pay for later. A relative con is that the restaurant does not have air conditioner, which is quite necessary in... More

Welcoming restaurant inside the Cittadella of Victoria. The owner was very friendly and the food, cheap and excellent. I recommend the Ravioli and the "must have": the best rabbit I've ever eaten!!!

We arrived here for lunch whilst visiting Gozo on holiday. We had a platter of cheese,bread,capers,tomatoes and cheese all very simply prepared but very tasty and just what we wanted and washed down with a glass of house wine. The pudding was good too a cake made of dates and orange.
