Absolutely excellent meals, served with friendly hospitality and some generosity. And for this quality of food very good value. We all had different meals and none of them disappointed. Bruschetta starters especially good.

Although it is located just a few steps from the main square in Victoria it is definitely not a tourist trap. I usually go there with my friends and we were never disappointed. I’ve never been there without ordering one of their bruschetta as a starter. Tried almost all of them, and I suggest you do too :) Apart from... More

A perfect place for winding up after a hectic week! It is a restaurant with a warm atmosphere and a creative menu - inspired a lot from italian cuisine. Of particular interest are the focaccias - especially for those pizza lovers who are open to some concept change when having a nice chat on a bottle of wine. Prices are... More

An amazing restaurant, great food and wonderful staff! I recently moved to the island, found Maldonados by chance - I'm addicted to the place. Will definitely be a place for family and friends visiting.

This gem of a restaurant is tucked away in a narrow street in Victoria off the beaten track. Its not big but, boy oh boy, it is exceptional! The food is divine, the desserts heavenly and the service top notch. Ah, and it is cheap by Gozo's standards! I noticed also a homely touch to the food and asked if... More

I found this bistro by chance and the location is a bit hidden. We booked by email but you can also phone them. It is important to book since the place is small. It had a different menu from the usual restaurants but the food was extremely delicious and I did not have to wait long for the food. The... More

If one likes to enjoy Food, a comfortable Atmosphere the Maldonado is a good choice. Enjoy the Food, the Friendly staff and the Ambience inside the wine Cellar or outside in the Green cosy courtyard.
