A must go when you are in Gozo. This beautiful bay is small and preferably you go with a car or a motor to get there. Don't think that there is a bus service for there as the road to reach the bay is steep...More

Wow, what a place, basically a beach hut operating as a restaurant, food seems to be caught and cooked, grill only, plastic tables and chairs or you can sit on the pallet chairs, so basic but beautiful food and a bay and view to die...More

This place is special! Still very raw and untouched, beautiful beautiful sea, the cutest little boathouses & a hut which serves THE MOST AMAZING seafood i have tasted to date.

Mgarr Ix-Xini is a gorgeous spot to swim and relax. Beautiful clear water. It was my father's favourite spot and now mine.

The food and service are actually good and the location is nice but you can't help feeling ripped off being charged 5-star hotel prices at a family-run beach shack. We had no wine, no coffee and no dessert - just water, starters and fish -...More

Being the only place serving food and drinks in the area they of course take advantage and overcharge you. Not the prices you'd expect from such a casual place plus the staff were really rude. It's a shame as mgarr ix xini is beautiful.
