My partner and I happened to walk past this restaurant and the atmosphere was lovely. We went in and were welcomed with open arms. We asked for advice on wine to buy and they offered us a beautiful red, it was fantastic. We were given a complimentary starter of olives, different spreads, broad beans and lovely Maltese bread. This was... More

We were looking for a traditional Maltese restaurant and the Gozitan was recommended by our Concierge. Following a walk past just to check it out we made a reservation for that evening. We arrived and were soon seated. Whilst perusing the menu we were given a plate of complimentary starters - a combination of various little hard round cracker type... More

A lot of locals eating there is always a good sign. Good service and enjoyable food. The fresh, grilled fish is the star of the show. Other meat dishes were enjoyed with good ingredients carefully prepared.

We went here as a family of 4 after a recommendation from a local resident. Excellent food for my Mum, Dad and son. Not great for me as a vegetarian but ok. Nice atmosphere and lots of locals which is always a good sign. Mum and Dad had rabbit stew which they said was gorgeous. My son had ribeye steak... More

A friend of mine suggest me this place, I knew it's gonna be a superb meal. Free parking, very friendly staff, food is really delicious and in abundance. Just go there and taste some of the best Maltese cuisine with reasonable prices. For sure I will be back!

Food was okay. Large portions. Rabbit stew was pretty bland. Octopus was good, but recommend sharing. Best part of the meal was the potatoes.
