Mediterrenean cuisine with an Italian flair

Having noticed this small bistro tucked away in one of the small side streets of old Victoria, I decided to give it a try. I don't regret it, and I doubt anyone would! I chose Black Truffle Tortino with Wild Asparagus & Guanciale from the Specials Menu, and I savored every bit of it. The... read more

The fresh, home made gnocchi with asparagus, butter and sage were an absolute wow. Bruschetta was so simple, yet the fresh tomatoes bursting with flavor made it so delicious I can still taste it. The apple crumble was a huge portion and superb! The waiter's recommendations were genuine. My friends enjoyed the meal and this is currently my favorite in... More

This is one fantastic spot, worth visiting. We make it a point to dine here every time that we are in Gozo. The food is fantastic and without any doubt one of the best of the island. The staf is friendly and always ready to help. The menu has always some surprise since it's changed according to season. We've been... More

Absolutely one of my favourite places to dine, enjoy a bottle of wine...or two...or three with friends, and most recently attended a private function there. Service always with a smile, a delicious, varied menu, very accommodating hosts who try their best to make you comfortable and happy. A superb wine list and decadent desserts. Maldonado is always a highly pleasurable... More

My starter was an absolute joy - carpaccio of beef with a sliced strawberry was a very original concept and a perfect food match. The main course was very acceptable. Charming staff and a lovely quaint setting, really very hard to find fault with this establishment. Recommended.

Eating out is not cheap and one`s choices keep narrowing down as standards are not always kept. Many establishment lay more emphasis on state of the art decor and then disappoint where the food is concerned. Others let you down as to their service: either too detached or simply slack and uninterested. The places where you can actually relax, have... More

Maldonado's is my favorite neighborhood restaurant - just around the corner from my house in the ancient heart of Victoria.. The intimate atmosphere is charming and romantic in a candlelit stone farmhouse. Service is warm, friendly and professional and there is no rush. Menu choices are extensive, with an ever changing list of specials. It is a great place to... More
