An excellent choice

Given that Gozo has many "on the water" dining choices, I was a little hesitant to choose an off the water restaurant for dinner. This location is close to Mgarr Harbor but it's not directly on the water. We sat outside and the atmosphere was excellent. While the restaurant was full, the service... read more

Ta Tona is a holiday dream restaurant. Fabulous setting where you can sit and eat and watch the world go by, great freshly prepared food and real top quality, friendly service. There's no wonder you have to book in high season - we saw a dozen people turned away each night we ate there. It's a top restaurant with a... More

Outstanding from the outset. Service, setting, food, drink... Simply can't fault it. Hard to think if we've ever experienced better service than we received tonight. Truly excellent. An absolute must, even if it's the only restaurant you visit on the island.

helpful and patient with reservation for large table, fast and friendly service, very good food (superb grilled calamari & excellent fish and rib-eye), perfect location, reasonable price. Only comment, a bit more rizzi in the pasta ai rizzi, and keep the onions out of spaghetti alle vongole :)

I don't usually review places but this one really deserves it. After the second attempt to reserve a table, I managed to book a table for my father's birthday on a thursday since they were fully booked on wednesday so be sure to book even on weekdays. We all had such a wonderful time. The menu is well varied not... More

Out of the 10 nights I stayed in M'garr, I only ate here twice... but that's only because they couldn't fit me in for the other 8 nights! In M'garr, the emphasis is firmly on seafood, which I'm not a fan of. Thankfully, the Ta' Tona has a varied menu with something to offer everyone, and very agreeably priced. Is... More

The serving staff were very helpful and attentive here and the food was very nice but we came away feeling a bit disappointed. The ambiance just isn't there. We were sat facing a garage door that needed a good lick of paint and there was a serious issue with the flies which I know you get when sitting outside in... More

We had a lovely seafood lunch here with scallops and prawns. Very tasty washed down with a bottle of Rose. Good service. Worth a visit
