Excellent lunch. Superb location away from the crowds. Used their loungers. Can recommend the sea food risotto, but be armed the starter size will fill you for lunch!

My wife and I booked this restaurant as we were recommended to do so, and we were happy that we did. The restaurant was full and people were queuing to get the next table. The views are lovely, looking over Marsalforn. We ordered our drinks and food pretty quickly, but from this point on, the service went down hill. It... More

Beautiful scenery and the food is always enjoyable. My only criticism would be that the portion sizes are very large; but there are worse criticisms to be had!

I have eaten here many times over the last few years and been impressed every visit. Good food pleasant and helpful staff and an evening view to die for. When the daylight goes down the entire bay front is lit up like a carnival and the effect on the bay is stunning. It sparkles like starlight. I would recommend this... More

My family and I enjoyed a great dinner by the sea at Otters. We ordered various fish dishes for the adults and beef bacon burgers for the children. The food was excellent and the service was great with 4 waiters attending our table. We will definitely return soon. Thank you Otters Staff.

A very pleasant lunch, if slightly windy - but we were right by the sea. Tasty food, quick service. Plenty of choice and good for families. Inside seating available but steep steps down so not sure about access for wheelchairs or pushchairs - could be available to the side.

Otters was by far the best meal I had on my recent trip to Gozo. The food was authentic and delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive without being too pushy or intrusive (not the case when you walk down the main road in Marsalforn and are accosted by everyone trying to sell their restaurant) We ordered mussels and...

I had the fish soup as starter and frutti di mare pasta as main. It was really delicious. The soup and pasta tasted great and there was a lot of fish included! Fresh bread aswell. I took the small portion and still couldn't finish it. They gave us some appetizers and a degustif for free. The staff was very friendly... More

Lovely location overlooking the bay. Food was lovely, service was really good and very attentive. Food was hot and plentiful. Could do with a few more cocktail options on the drinks menu, or maybe the bar staff just need a bit of direction on that but overall probably one of the best restaurants in Marsalforn bay this year.

Really disappointed in the meal we had here. We ate here four years ago and it was good but our meal today was not. Service poo.

Dear Matthew, Obviously this is another review created to do damage. A proper reviewer points out the real problem and if there is one it will be solved instantly. Thank you Matthew and hope to see you in four years more. Albert More
