A tad stuffy for us. Went in, we're given menus but not made feel overly welcome. Waited 20 minutes and none came near us again. We left. Decor etc were lovely, would be prepared to give it another chance but we would dress up a bit in the hope of better service.

We visited on Mother's Day , so the restaurant was very busy . The location is beautiful and in a very old farm house . Very efficient staff and amazing food , it was great to have a different menu to choose from , most restaurants in the area seem to offer the same dishes. It is more expensive than... More

Came here for a friends 30th birthday on a recommendation from some other friends. Absolutely beautiful place, shame it was a little cold, would have liked to sit outside. Can imagine it would be stunning in the summer. We all had the market menu, which was delicious - beware the portions are very generous! When you're having four courses, you're... More

A place to go for a treat, great service, spotless upmarket place with fine food to go with it. Imposing but not intimidating.

I choose this restaurant to celebrate my 61st Birthday with my wife and as usual Joseph and his team lived up to its reputation. The food, the wine, the exceptional venue, the friendly exchanges with the staff helped to make this a memorable event. This is what makes us keep returning.

the best restaurant in Gozo. Pity the owner died but staff managed to keep up the excellent range of dishes and wines. Probably close to a Michelin 1 restaurant.

We enjoyed a very pleasant evening here, in the lovely surroundings. We ate from the a la carte menu's daily specials choosing Camembert / mushroom and truffle croquettes for starters, followed by grouper fish / chicken for mains and the crepes suzette for desserts. The food was sublime, served at a leisurely pace by professional but unobtrusive waiters. I tried... More

Visited on valentines day, we took the 7-course set menu. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Gozo, definitely recommend for a special occasion. Food was superb and had its own unique taste and presentation. Atmosphere was very nice, slightly noisy at times (but it is expected of a fully booked restaurant, I guess). Service was very nice too.

I've been going to Ta' Frenc since it first opened, more than 30 years ago and I have always enjoyed it. The food is delicious, the service is attentive and the venue is beautiful. It's not cheap, but worth every penny!
