Normally good service but yesterday (26/11/2020) I and my wife were served sub-standard pasta dishes. Penne Salmone was anything but salmon and Spaghetti Bolognese was horrible. Doubt whether I will return to this restaurant and will not recommend it to my friends.

This is the kind of restaurants people hardly know about (because they are not in popular areas), but worth a try. A friend of mine suggested this place, and it has been by far the most safe place I've visiting in Gozo (Covid related). The...staff were helpful and really nice. The food is affordable and amazing. The portions are huge and we're not only recommending this restaurant to others, but also plan to visit many more times in the future. Thumbs up to you all at Il-Kunvent.More

Only visited once before and it wasn't a great experience. Not their fault all all as there was a power failure throughout Gozo. A friend recommended the place again and decided to try again. Food was amazing, as was the house wine, service was prompt...and price was good. We had pasta with seafood, pasta with sea urchins, Spare ribs and ravioli. 2 bottles of water and a large house wine. Price was about 65 euros which is about 16 euros per person. Highly recommended.More

I usually order Spaghetti Bolognese when I go to a restaurant that offers it. Its a standard dish, and underrated because usually it's a couple of Euro cheaper than alternatives. But if done well it's the best dish on the menu for me personally. Sadly...most restaurants offer a very poor effort for this dish. However, this restaurant is the only restaurant on Gozo where I can recommend Spaghetti Bolognese so far. I've tried most. This is the winner. It's not how I make it, but it's consistently agreeable and great value!More

We had lunch here two weeks ago. It was my first time to visit. The food was very good and service was very welcomed. The menu definitely reflects local cuisine with “recipes of the day” which are very inviting. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch which...was both tasty and satisfying. Quite reasonable prices too. I highly recommend this place both for locals and tourists. It is centrally located at the heart of Gharb which is also worth a visit when in Gozo.More

Went for the second time to Il-Kunvent, as we had been more than satisfied on the first occasion. Food is marvellous..It was a pleasant evening on the terrace, and we had all enjoyed our food, as I said before, the food was very good. Full...marks goes to the chef. It was time for dessert. Imqaret were on the menu, and I asked for them..The waitress told me that they were NOT serving them. Well and good..But, a COUPLE OF MINUTES later, something I could not avoid, I heard the clients at the table next to us, order the Imqaret. To my amazement, they did have their Imqaret!!I called the waitress and asked her why. She just said 'that's what I've been told'. Plus her attitude was really bad. She even raised her voice..Politely, I asked her to see the manager...SHE TOTALLY IGNORED ME. She did not bother at all and at no time, did she call the manager. We were so frustrated, we asked another waiter (who by the way, all the other waiters who were all foreigners were really nice) for the bill. On the way out, I asked for the manager. I'm not sure if the person who I spoke to was the manager..The reason she gave us is, that people come at the same time, and they will be under pressure..! That's not a reasonable answer. If they can't handle that amount of guests, either increase staff or do not take reservations at the same time. However, at least, she did go in the kitchen with the complaint. The chef (maybe he manages the whole restaurant) came to talk to us immediately. He was quite understandable and apologised. He even offered to give me the Imqaret as take away..Obviously, at that moment, I didn't even want to see the Imqaret...so I thanked him just the same. This experience, which started on a very good note, changed to a bad one in just a few seconds, just because of one waitress. She needs to learn from the chef how to treat her clients. My only regret is that because of that waitress (who by the way, was a local), we did not leave a tip. It wasn't fair on the others, but her attitude made us so angry.More

A very popular restaurant, which you need to book, especially for a table on the terrace for dinner. Good menu and wine list, all very reasonably priced. The service was excellent but slows up when it gets fuller and a smile or two from the...waiters would make a positive difference and we didn't exactly feel welcomed. It night just have been a bad day for the staff, Nevertheless, if you're in Gharb do give it a try,More
