“second time lucky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

had tried to visit last year,but found restaurant unexpectantly shut.Went again this august to try it out.We had reserved a table in the enclosed terrace which had beautiful views.Some people complaining not open terrace,but in malta the amount of beautiful al fresco meals spoiled by the copious amount of smokers makes this a plus.food was lovely,esp the quail,although feel as it comes with noodles,more potato and veg not required.local platter with gozo cheese,sausage etc very tasty.The menu is a bit different from many other restaurants,which after eating out for 2 weeks is a pleasant change from lots of similar dishes.We had some good wine,and all in all a lovely evening,though just a bit quiet

“Really enjoyed it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Me and my boyfriend went here on a weekday. As starters we took the black mussels and the parcel veg (dont know the name exactly but it was a special). They were nicely presented and tasted good. The service was great... But I'd like to see some smiling ;). Since only us and another table there was. As main course we took duck and salmon which were delicious ! We did not eat it all since we were full up by e apetisers, bread and sorbe. The head waitress had given us free sorbe and limoncello on the house :). They were really good and they know how to treat their customers. Mthe view is splended one can see half gozo from the balcony.

Goodluck and thank you for your hospitality. I recommend this restaurant to everyone, in my opinion it is one of the best steakhouse in Gozo ! :)

“First time at Pulitos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Very good restaurant, the menu is slightly different to a lot of the other restaurants on the island, which is good. Food was excellent, one thing is not to over order as the portions are large and we left quite a bit.

“we only visited because of trip advisor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

However this time the reviews let us down, it was rated number 1 in the area, this I feel is a tad exaggerated. The food was ok without being great, the wine list was in my opinion quite poor. Atmosphere was non existent, service was adequate, not fast or slow, but it felt like we were being a burden by being there. The venue seems to be confused, it does not seem to know if it is a bar, a restaurant or a night club. Having said all that it certainly is not the worst restaurant but there are much better ones on the island.
