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

Been visiting Gozo for years and this has to be the best restaurant on the island. The food is fantastic made with passion and home grown produce by the very friendly family that own and run this restaurant. The wine, the bread all made by the family and both are truly top quality.

Wonderful restaurant, great food, helpful and friendly family running it. Rustic, and great. This is authentic local food. Don't miss it. Don't expect posh fine settings, you won't find them. You will find a great time. They also bake bread in the mornings, get there around 9am. The bread will be hot from the oven and great to eat. Don't... More

We almost didn't go to this restaurant because it is quite a way from the main square and there is a great choice of venues there but we are really pleased we made the effort. It was a cooler evening so we decided to sit inside. When we entered the place there was nobody else in but Tony and the... More

Dont be fooled by the shabby exterior, or interior for that matter, the food here is excellent! Tony loves nothing more than to join you for a chat and ply you with his home-made wine (potent stuff!), whilst his wife Carmen takes real pleasure in seeing you devour the tasty treats she brings out for you. We have never been... More
