Lovely meal on top of the world!

This place is the best restaurant I've ever been to, in the Maltese Islands. It's the best place to eat out with a little difference. To eat on an open terrace roof two stories up from ground level overlooking the ever stunning fjord like inlet of Xlendi bay, is such a treat that not many... read more

Visited ic Cima while on our stay in Gozo the rooftop is amazing and gives the place an outstanding atmosphere. The food is of very good quality with generous portions. We took a local platter to share which was good for four people. I would recommend the fish stew as a main as it exceeded my expectations. It's slightly above... More

I just made an account to write a report on IC CIMA Restaurant. The food and the service were excellent. But at the end of the meal i gave a 10 euro note to a teenage waitress. I asked her if she made good tips over there. I was shocked most with her reply. She told me " THE OWNERS... More

The title says it all. If you try out this restaurant you will be amazed with the genuine, cooked-to-perfection Gozitan dishes on offer. The service was excellent, the wine list is exhaustive. The dessert is magnificent. A restaurant to die for. Well done. Truly an enjoyable experience.

Overlooking the Xlendi bay, Ic-Cima is one of the best food spot on the island. Very nice roof terrace, service very smart and efficient. The food is divine, I've tried almost all the menu and I've never been disappointed.

This restaurant can be found on the hill overlooking Xlendi bay offering breathtaking views across the bay especially enjoyable at sunset from the roof terrace. The food is of the highest quality served by efficient and friendly staff. My son and I had pan seared duck in honey and fig sauce whilst my husband chose the T bone steak .... More

Ic-Cima is very popular, so if you want a front-line table you need to book well in advance. We booked twenty-four hours earlier but the best tables had already been allocated. Nonetheless, we got a side table, so half our party were happy with the stunning view. (I had a close-up view of the next-door building and its airconditioning units!)... More

Great view over bay, hugh wonderful meals and more than happy to provide a bid to take home left overs for lunch the next day. the mixed Gozo starter is a wonder so many things to eat through and...

Dined here a couple of days ago. The location is simply spectacular. Try to time your dining experience with Sunset in order to view the natural beauty of the area. With regards to the restaurant itself, the dining area is divided in two - the downstairs area which is just off the street and the upstairs area which has both... More
