While on vacation in Gozo we were able to visit L'Ankra on more than one occasion and we truly loved everything about our experience. 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.

Went to Ankra for a dinner with my husband and family. The menu has a great selection of exquisite dishes but we opted to choose from the specials of the day. My husband chose the pork fillet which was served on a bed of sweet potatoes and leeks. This was cooked to perfection, i must say, it was so tender... More
