“Lovely food, lovely location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We arrived at about 2.30 for a late lunch where we both chose pizza from the extensive but affordable menu. The food came quickly and the service was extremely friendly.
The location of the restaurant provides stunning views of the bay at Xlendi, under the shade of parasols with a lovely sea breeze.
As we finished our meal the staff were ready to close up for the afternoon and once we'd paid our bill we were told to stay on the terrace for as long as we wanted and enjoy the views.
Can't fault this place and will definitely return should I find myself on Gozo again!

“A lovely evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I wish we had gone to this restaurant sooner as it really is excellent. Wonderful food, unobtrusive, prompt service and a view and sunset to die for. Why can't all places be like this? If you're in Xlendi, make this your first port of call!

“Idyllic evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

Drove past this lovely al fresco restaurant perched on the top of the hill in Xlendi, directly above the water. This dear man called Mark reserved a lovely little table for us. The ambience is quite idyllic... Private, romantic and relaxing. I wasn't too keen on a cat pestering another diner but it was actually quite sweet to see this ginger-colored cat flirting outrageously with this male diner who was enjoying a gorgeous plate of fresh fish. Anyway, my dining partner and I wanted to try out two different pasta dishes so I asked whether chef would kindly prepare both dishes and share it between the two of us. Our waiter, Mark, immediately said it wouldn't be a problem. We enjoyed a couple of drinks and listened to the perfectly chosen background music while we waited. The pasta was served to perfection. Waiters came by to check whether we needed anything. Dessert was a total pleasure. I would most definitely recommend their Chocolate Trilogy... Indulgence melting in your mouth! We were left to enjoy our chat and the cool breeze - then Mark kindly brought over two large limoncellos on ice. It was definitely one of the most relaxing evenings. Anyone visiting Gozo should include this lovely restaurant in their itinerary. I, for one, will definitely be returning to to taste more of their good food!
