What a wonderful place this is. Service was friendly, caring and attentive. Food was wonderful, especially the horse meat stew and the fried rabbit. A couple of bottles of wine and we were out as satisfied as can get. Will be seeing us soon for sure.

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

Gozitan restaurant in Paceville is the only restaurant in Malta serving authentic, traditional Maltese and Gozitan food. We have been open for three years and serve fresh fish daily as well as other local specialties such as horse meat, rabbit, bragioli (beef olives), qarabali mimli (stuffed marrows) and lots more. Gozitan has a smoking area and also provides its patrons... More

I remember going there and asking the waiter for some information about my chosen dish and she gave me the wrong information. I also ordered the dish as a starter size but she got me the main course size so I had to pay extra when that was not what I had requested. I wasted all my money because 1.... 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.
