Enticed by the 'roof garden' sign we entered. We passed through a large building with dining halls on both floors, which appeared to have not been used for some time. We finally arrived at the roof garden and it honestly felt like we had entered a tomb! Only one other table had guests, it was dark, it felt eerily quiet.... More

Wish we had looked at trip advisor before entering! My Partner and i ordered 2 beers which were served warm, I had the cheese salad and my partner ordered the bragiolli. After a hour wait our food finally arrived. It is without a doubt the worst food we had in gozo. We were served a basket containing 6 thin slices... More

Food is way below average, with the cannelloni in tomato sauce being uneatable. Toilets don't flush. Environment depleted. A waste of money.

Unfortunately visited this establishment with the family and had to leave without eating anything. The food was so bad when it arrived in dribs and drabs that we refused to eat and pay for it. We payed for our drinks only. We ordered three lots of prawn risotto which not only looked awful but smelled disgusting, therefore putting everybody off... More

Although the place is very charming and the staff rather friendly, this was probably the worst pizza I ever had. The dough was dry and tasteless. I'm thinking cardboard. The cheese was also tasteless. The "pepperoni" was the cheap kind that you can find in supermarkets and was way too salty. The tomato sauce was good, but there wasn't much... More

I visited this restaurant with my husband and two children at approx. 8pm on a Sunday evening, and we chose it as a faster alternative to preparing a meal in our holiday apartment. Oh, how mistaken we were! We arrived on the roof terrace to find four other tables occupied, and a nervous, slightly distracted waiter in attendance. We waited... More

I can only confirm what many others have written so far. We saw the cosy roof terrace and wanted to have a light dinner there, enjoying the evening view of Victoria. But the coziness stopped there. Even though only 4 tables were occupied (all tourists, no locals - a bad sign already) the service was very slow. For drinks we... More

We were here for lunch and had a Spaghetti and a salad to keep from collapsing from hunger. In that situation we found his restaurant adequate. While we were there the owner and one of the waitstaff got in an argument which almost led to blows, which made it interesting. If they had actually exchanged punches I would have rated... More

Like others before us we made the mistake of being enticed into this establishment with the temptation of lunch on the roof terrace. We were served by a very pleasant young Spanish waiter who had only started that day, and was still working his way round the menu. (I strongly suspect he was just thrown into the deep end and...

We took a table at one if the alfresco restaurants at Independence square and realized that we were inhaling more diesel fumes from the many tourist coaches doing the rounds. So after scouting for a more hygienic setting we hit upon the Main Square Bar & Restaurant. Our lunch was more functional so we went with the most common pizza,... More
