Finally got the chance to dine at Maldonado's and what a great evening we had. Excellent food, ambiance and hospitality in restaurant full of character. Would not hesitate dining again on our next visit to Gozo. Highly recommended. Again...a "Hidden Gem".

My friends and I went, table of 6, and we were taken care of by amazing host Mamo and cooked fantastic meals by his girlfriend Michaela! The fresh pasta was one of my favorito and the chopped filletto with mushroom sauce a pleasure to eat! Can definitely recommend!

We went for dinner to Maldonado Bistro last night for the first time and were impressed by the authentic Italian cuisine. The home-made pasta with truffle oil and mushrooms was to-die for. Pasta is al dente and certainly cooked fresh. The seconds are a beautiful balance of sweet and sour flavours, as is the duck cooked with figs and chilli.... More

It's a real pity this quaint restaurant isn't in a more prominent location. We visited with a group of friends for late night food and we were greeted with beautiful décor and attentive staff. The large variety of bruschetta is one of the specialities of this place and it is highly recommended. The starter portion of pasta was also excellent... More

We found this by chance down a little side street. Food was great, good choice of wine, beers and cocktails. Good size portions - starter size pasta as a 'main' was ample. Really friendly staff and background music that was not too loud to disrupt conversation. A real gem.

This restaurant is well hidden in Victoria and you will not find it advertised in any tourist magazin (yet) and thus not an "award winning restaurant" as you will them see all over Malta...But here you find good local and Italian food resonably priced. It can be busy even off season so book a table to be sure. (Phone 00356... More
