The setting is gorgeous; the outside views speak for themselves and the restaurant's decor reminded me of the traditional Maltese luzzu colours :) The staff were very friendly... read more

Great views of the Xlendi creek. Food superb and extremely comprehensive wine list which was great value. Had calamari starter which was superb and nicely presented. Then... More

We first headed for restaurant La Cuccina (recommended by our guide book) that was closed without notice and swaped for this restaurant as we met the helpful and friendly cook. We spent a great evening. To start with, the terrace offers a compelling view upon the gorgeous cliffs at sunset. The service is, contrary to what a predecessor wrote, both... More

I live on Gozo and went to Ic Cima last night with friends; it is a place we never would have considered walking into, but what a mistake! Apart from the stunning view of Xlendi Bay from the top (including a wonderful large outdoor balcony) the food was fantastic, the service was good, friendly staff - no room for complaints.... More

If you are a visitor to Paradise (Gozo) or better still a resident and have a discerning palette you need to experience Ic-Cima. We were 14 attending this function and had pre-arranged the menu with Aron who heads up the kitchen. Tony, front of house, welcomed us and ensured we got excellent service. The view of Xlendi Bay from the... More

This was lunch stop on an all inclusive day tour from Malta, and well worth it was too. We had a main course choice of Fish or Chicken with Salad to start and Ice Cream to finish with a 1/2 carafe of wine per person. Food was delicious, service was excellent with a wonderful views. Highly recommended
