“Couldn't have asked for more...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Ate here last night! Great location as are most of the restaurants in Gozo. I couldn't fault anything. For October they have 20% off all the wines Mon to Thurs. we shared a starter of smoked salmon stuffed with prawns and they bought it beautifully set out on a plate each. I thought they had misheard but they hadnt and charged us for only one. The steak pasta was delightful and I had the seasonal lampuki grilled which was exquisite. I was too full for a pudding! The cloudy bay NZ wine was cheap with the offer at about 20£. Great service, free drink at the end, couldn't not have asked for anything else.

“Good food, first rate service and a view to die for xxx”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

It was our third/ fourth visit this lovely restaurant as we are frequent visitors to the beautiful island of Gozo. I ordered the octopus for starters which was cooked to perfection and for my mains I was feeling very adventurous and fancied something different . I asked the really helpful waiter what the squid ink spaghetti was like he said u either love it or hate it and he told me he especially enjoyed it . So I felt daring and ordered it I really did not like it at all it tasted awful the waiter came back a minute after serving me to ask me what I thought of it . Very attentive of him I couldn't lye he offered to change it for a seafood spaghetti which by the way was delicious ! No extra charge on bill and I thanked him at the end of the meal he said customer satisfaction was most important to them . We tipped generously as I felt guilty about not eating the squid and also cos the customer service was faultless ! Will definately be frequenting there again in the future x

Eat here on arrival on the island after 6 hours traveling. Very good quality but massive portions. Lovely location and excellent staff.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This restaurant is by the warer's edge. The staff are very well trained and courteous . The menu is varied and since I am allergic to fish and garlic the chef prepared a specific dish for me. I highly recommend this restaurant.
