“Exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Excellent location, professional service with a smile and fantastic food. Local king prawns are to die (or, rather, to live) for. Definitely THE place to eat in Gozo - already can't wait to back.

“Excellent as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We booked a table of 12. The restaurant was quite busy that evening and they coped very well. The food as usual was excellent - especially the chocolate mousse! The staff were friendly and welcoming and were able to explain the ingredients for the dishes and how they were made. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Whether you visit for lunch, dinner or just a beer, Chez Amand never disappoints.

“Ranked No. 1 ....I don't think so”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Ranked No 1 in Marsalforn, that's what they say, and I have to confess I am unsure as to how the ranking works, but onto our visit.

The restaurant position and ambiance is great, however, our experience was not a favourable one, we like to eat out and love to find great places to return to. On this occasion my wife and I chose simply, the menu didn't excite but that's a very personal thing, I chose a pasta dish my wife a seafood risotto. We ordered a carafe of local wine and despite making it quite clear, I thought, that we wanted a litre carafe we were brought a small carafe, no real issue, same wine, ossibly slightly more expensive to have 2 x small carafes rather than 1 x litre ...but, and it is a persoanl thing, I think a little carafe sitting on the table looks like a 'specimen' bottle ...I told you it was a personal thing!

Our big gripe was with the seafood risotto, well my wife's gripe. The rice was not risotto rice but plain short grain rice, much of the seafood was from frozen, 'why use frozen when you could throw your risotto into the sea from your table?' and my wife found th dish over seasoned, too peppery, but. this too can be a personal thing.

We spoke to our host who was very accommodating, whilst preotesting that he had never had anyone return his risotto before he was happy to change it and he did for a the same pasta dish which i was enjoying, as did my wife

Chez Amand has been in Marsalfion all the time we have been going there, 13 years, it has a great position but if they are to hang onto their No. 1 ranking theywill need to pu/ll their socks up!

“Worth the walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Visited Gozo for the 1st time & planning our tour, we decided Marsalforn was the place for lunch. Tripadvisor reviews indicated one stand out choice; Chez Amand & it did not disappoint. A 10-15 minute walk along coast from the town centre, we sat outside over looking the crystal clear waters of the bay in the perfect October sunshine. The service was friendly, prompt & helpful. We started with the Bruschetta & Breaded fish followed by the main course of Special Cannelonis which contained a mix of ricotta, spinach & mixed seafood - all gorgeous! Though tempting, we avoided the very good wine list & dessert menu & chose a refreshing beer instead. Our only regret was not being able to sample some of the other interesting dishes on the menu. Thoroughly deserves the high ratings & definitely worth the walk!
