Very nice decor, it was almost like going into a Tardis! A number of small rooms, nice atmosphere. Good menu, interesting, different flavours. Portions slightly on the large side especially if you had a starter! Staff keen to please and want you to enjoy your meal.

We have passed this restaurant many times on our September Gozo holidays and it has always been closed. This year was different and we booked a table. We were greeted by a very nice waitress and proceeded to order food and wine sitting in a very nice atmosphere. The starters arrived with the wine and all was good. The evening... More

Food was very delicious and prepared in a very home-made style that showed the chef's passion illustrating a mix of Gozitan food with an Italian touch! Service and atmosphere was very pleasant. Resto is in the heart of Gozo's capital which makes it nicer to dine there while one can also enjoy walking around the narrow streets of Victoria/Rabat.

This quaint bistro offers good quality food with an Italian touch which makes it really special. We tried one of the bruschettas for starters which was very enjoyable and tasty and then we had 3 different pasta dishes which were equally delicious...the tomato sauce was exceptional, having that true Italian taste which is very difficult to replicate at home. Well... More

Lovely little restaurant in the old part of Victoria on the way to Kercam. Had a very tasty Aubergine Parmagiana. Tasty food with a original twist. Good reasonably priced wine and friendly service.

We saved the best until last. It was for our last night in Gozo that we decided to visit Maldonado Bistro as we had read great reviews on trip advisor. The restaurant is tucked away down a small side street and we entered down some steps into a very intimate setting where we were greeted by our hosts. Having children... More

We shared 3 types of delicious brushcetta the greek style was my... More
