This restaurant is the best meal I have had in gozo. The surroundings are not as good as the main square, however in comparison for food quality, the square restaurants would appear that they are pretty without substance. The food appeared to be authentic, the owners appear to be true foodies, making their own wine and "firewater". The staff are... More

I simply loved the traditional pizza at Tal-Furnar, staff members are delightful and welcoming, additionally the food is great value for money. I would suggest this place to anyone who wishes to have a taste of some good traditional Gozitan food. I just can't wait to go back!

Having read reviews and seen how busy it is (you do need to book), I was a bit underwhelmed by the experience. We had the rabbit, chicken and a pizza, all of which were very tasty and plentiful. The service was 'ok' - a little slow but we put that down to the type of dishes. Fries ordered on the... More

Went here 2 times for dinner in a week and really enjoyed both. As mentioned in other reviews, portions are huge. For 2 of us, we shared a starter both times, ordered 1 regular main and a starter size pasta for the other main, then shared a dessert. And were stuffed full at the end. I was a little sad... More

We went there twice with the same satisfaction each time. We discovered some typical dishes like the bragioli. This is a delicious familial dish, full of flavours but the portions are ENORMOUS! The second time, we came for the "Pig's Night" where they cook in the oven a whole pig and you eat spicy sausages as a starter before being... More

We tried Tal-Furnar based on the reviews here and it was a pretty good choice as we were craving for local dishes. We love Malta, been travelling many times here and take as many opportunities to taste Maltese flavours. We went for dinner on Friday the 25th of July 2014, the bus stopped in front of the restaurant and we... More

This is a little further than the main square where there are other restaurants, but it is worth finding. The food was excellent and the service was great. It was the best tasting food we had all week. It does get busy, so try to book at weekends or eat early.

Set in an interesting premesis. Local bakery in the morning, but come at any other time it's a restaurant. A family run enterprise where the food is cooked to perfection! Enjoyed both by locals and visitors. Tony, Carmen and Anne Marie will make sure you are well looked after. The wine is supperb, from the family's own vinyard in Marsalforn... More
