Lovely local food, really good value for money

This is a lovely little restaurant in one of the quieter roads in St Julian's. It has the feel of a greek taverna, clean and comfortable but not showy. The staff were all so friendly and helpful.

Down a little side street away from the main St Julien bar strip you'll find the unpretentious welcoming and proud Gozitan offering a real taste of Gozo .. specialities include a very generous lamb shank which falls off the bone and traditional popular rabbit dishes but be warned don't fill yourself up with the fresh bread and spreads and big...

Was excellent: fresh and tasty. After a week there one of the top5 dishes I got. Side dishes were too much for me boiled potatos, fried potatos and sadly for veges you had to pay extra. But the best fish I got during the stay, even more expensive restaurants could not deliver that satisfaction :) ps. Good service!

We enjoyed a family meal of Maltese specialities. Portion sizes are huge, the sucking pig wonderfully succulent. Wine list is good. Very good with our child (high chair provided). Hard to fault.

The waitress brought the wine to my wife who noticed it was different. The waitress after asking 4 times finally brought the wine list over and agreed she gave her... More

We went for their 2 versions of their rabbit delicacy (pan fried fir me, stewed for my friend) which were both amazing - portions were quite big too! We were looked after by a very nice... More

Went to lunch to this spot and ordered ravioli main meal. They did not have as much ricotta as I would have wished. Yet they serve boiled ravioli and on the same plate fried ones. Good idea. What I particularly liked was the fact that tomato sauce is served in a separate pot so that you take as much as... More

Lovely place. We had a dinner there yesterday and it was one of the best meals i had on the island so far. The menu choices are very interesting with plenty of dishes i have never tried before such as quail and rabbit. Food was very tasty and wine cheap and good. The service was very attentive and nice.
