Three months have passed since my wife and I last dined at Ta` Frenc and we choose a Sunday night for our return. What a surprise to be welcomed as if only a shorter time had elapsed!!! Safely inside from the adverse weather, we felt so cosy and pampered by Joseph and his staff. The flambe` seafood starter and the... More

Went with my wife to celebrate our anniversary and I have some comments. The food was good although overpriced. Service impeccable although very fast, not enough time to digest between your first and second course. Our first was a lobster soup and it was served after a few minutes of our order.

We visited this restaurant as a special celebration evening. The service was excellent, waiter was attentive and atmosphere quiet but relaxed. The starters were unusual (eg crab rissotto with avocado ice cream ) and the main courses were exceptional. We didn't choose from the set menu as we thought it would be too much and were happy to settle for... More

I can thoroughly recommend Ta' Frenc if you are planning a special evening or thinking to push the boat out slightly. It's not the cheapest, but the excellent food and outstanding service more than compensate. The house champagne is very good indeed.

We had thought many times about eating here on our numerous trips to Gozo and hadn't because we always thought it might be 'too expensive' or 'too smart to take our children, how wrong we were!!! We are here in October as a large family group of 4 adults and 6 children and had a really lovely experience. We had... More

The institution proudly claims to be the culinary Malta champion. Not really in your neigborhood unless you happen to be on the Gozo island. Easy to find, parking lot behind the restaurant sufficient for the usual lunch / dinner crowd. Lovely settings, garden included, nice paintings on the main dining room walls, truly posh and inviting. Yet nobody seems to... More

Big thanks to Joseph and all his staff at Ta Frenc for looking after us so well on our wedding day. The food and service was fantastic as always. All our guests really enjoyed themselves. We will be back for Malbec and the chateaubriand! Thanks for everything from Mr&Mrs Salmon!

We went to Ta' Frenc whilst visiting friends who have retired to Gozo - our way of thanking them for their hospitality. And I'm so glad we did. On arrival the restaurant was fairly quiet (Thursday 7.30pm) but we received a warm welcome and drinks/food orders were taken quickly, though without any undue rush. We opted for for what is...

Ta Frenc had been recommended to us and I'd also heard that it was 'the place to go' on Gozo so it had a lot to live up to... well, thankfully our expectations were more than met! A beautiful building, tastefully decorated with style, set the tone and the menu offered just the right amount of choice and variety to... More
