This restaurant has a fantastic setting overlooking the breathtaking cliffis that make up Xlendi, the food is excellent, the menu varied and the service first class. Definitely one to visit.

This restaurant was the most up-market we experienced in the bay but the prices were consistent with the rest (which was a nice surprise). It's an impressive place - everything from the entry into the first-floor restaurant, the decor, panoramic sea-views and food. The service was very good and there was a great menu (steak looked like the specialty). The... More

My partner and I had a week in Xlendi and for 6 nights ate in different places. We decided to return to our favourite for the last night and in the end we had to toss a coin to decide between Ic-cima and Ta' Katerina because they are both very good. We had a very good all-round experience at the... More

This restaurant is probably my favourite from all of the island of Gozo. I always like to visit especially for special occasions. Definitely a great choice if looking for a restaurant with a breathtaking view. Food has always been delicious and alot to choose from. Also, loved the selection of the wine list.

I have been going to Ic-Cima for many years - the quality and standard remains great. Everytime we are going to Gozo we discuss going to another restaurant but it seems like we always go back. The choice of sea food is really good - but I always seem to go back to King Prawns. Besides the food, the choice... More

The view from the rooftop terrace is amazing. The service is great and the prices good. An extensive menu, including maltese dishes. Portions are very generous. What more could one ask for...

I'm a Gozitan foodie and love to spend a nice lunch or dinner at good restaurant. I consider myself a regular client at Cima. They provide their customers with delicious foods, daily specials, affordable prices, friendly service and wonderful views. Best of all, they have a great website where you can view the menu: http://www.cimarestaurant.com/ Highly recommended!

It had been a couple of years since I last visited ic-Cima and it was only because my preferred restaurants were all fully booked for lunch. This turned out to be a lucky break! I had forgotten the tranquil and incredible view from the 1st floor terrace of the restaurant. This was backed by excellent service from the amiable host... More

A great find, set up high looking over the bay, its a great location. Downstairs when we arrived was packed but upstairs was calm and nicely spaced out. The service was good and we were not rushed. My friends had the Fish stew and the Veal, both looked and apparently tasted fantastic. I went for the Chicken which had to... More

We had a splendid evening at Ic-cima and were made to feel welcome from the outset. Food was nicely served and very tasty indeed, and we felt we got real value for money. The setting is good, and as slightly away from the terribly busy noisy seafront of Xlendi - with great views, it is a peaceful place to be.... More
