I've never known a restaurant owner to be so passionate. Impeccable service. 4 stars for food. Lovely decor. Very good wine knowledge and selection for Gozo. Will 100% return and recommend as one of the best choices around.

One special time was my birthday as the restaurant offers a cozy, quaint seating for special occasions such as these. We all loved the food and excellent service provided by Gino and his team.

After walking along the harbour front we 'stumbled' across the restaurant L-Ankra and what a lucky find. It was about the only restaurant open every evening, (we went out of season).

Presentation was good but food was tasteless, ribeye was much smaller than stated and tasted a bit stale. I really wanted this place to be good because... More
