We ate here twice. The atmosphere in this underground bistro is very pleasant and the service is excellent. We had a very good meal the first. Time when we chose the North African specialties. We were less fortunate the second time with the Gozitan rabbit which was the only rabbit I didn't enjoy in Malta. However I would recommend this... More

I visited this restaurant twice during an eight night stay on Gozo. The first time was with friends who are locals and I was so impressed I went back two days later with my friend with whom I was on holiday. The restaurant itself is beautiful with a great atmosphere and the service fantastic. The menu is quite extensive and... More

Visited this place on saturday brilliant Relaxed atmosphere in this restaurant also very warm. We had a couple of gozo style pizzas served on a rectangular wooden board , You may also if you wish sample two toppings, very simple ,fresh ingredients and were delicious. Desserts were also good. Overall great place to visit when in Gozo.

A pleasant surprise! (We should try it again); We had fish; just before the opera (the only representation!) in October. Right in the heart of Rabat in Gozo - not easy to find as I recall (dowstairs - it must be a refreshing place on a hot day in the summer...)

I am sorry but we had a simple plate of pasta and it was served cold and we decided to return the plates into the kitchen. After 2 minutes the chef came with the plates and instead of apologizing for the matter he just threw the plates on the table with arrogance. Apart from that it had no taste.

While we seriously take both positive and negative reviews seriously, unfortunately we will not be held blackmailed to this review which is loaded, deceitful, and insincere. It is our normal practice that our own chef re-serves plates if there has been an issue as we have nothing to hide from and are very candid in the way we operate. Arrogance... More

We are fortunate to live in Gozo. Maldonado's is hidden away in the narrow streets of Victoria. With centuries of history and a cellar like ambience what's not to like? Add to this a varied and interesting menu and a good wine list the elements of a fine eveing are coming together. To round off the experience chat with Emanuel,... More
