Stunning view of Xlendi, especially if you're there during sun set! Super delicious food - we had spaghetti with seafood and it was truly value for money - definitely recommend!

Booking at 1pm .. Food on table at 3:10 ... If you wanna waste a whole afternoon go for it ! Waiter gets angry just because you ask when are we getting our food.

The view from the roof terrace is wonderful so don't be misled by the awful decor of the ground floor dining area which you have to suffer before making your way there. The decor upstairs is totally different and a pleasant surprise. The ravioli with the frutti di bosco were delicious as was the grilled sea bass. Pity about the... More

Booked this restaurant for my birthday after seeing the reviews on here, and I must say, all the positive comments are very well deserved. View from the terrace is beautiful, the staff are courteous, menu is varied, food is very well presented and tastes beautifully! Will definitely visit again :) thanks!

Lovely location. One of the 5 waiters was friendly; the others too serious. We just ordered mains on this occasion. The meals were plentiful.My partner's seafood stew was very satisfying. I think I just ordered wrong. The gnocchi dish tasted great but "smoked duck"? I don't think so. Tiny strips of either Bacon or beef. Disappointed.

This restaurant, situated on the outer part of the bay where the ground rises sharply, commands lovely views of the cliffs and the sea from its partly-glass covered roof terrace. Food was excellently prepared, menu varied, seafood fresh, portions generous, prices reasonable and service prompt. Try to be there in time for sunset - awesome!

We have been trying to find an opportunity to visit Ic-Cima for months but, there are so many fabulous restaurants in Gozo we just never seemed to have the chance. Last month we finally did it! We weren't disappointed either! It was magical. :-) Parking is plentiful and convenient, just across the street. When we arrived we were ushered upstairs... More
