We had a lovely lunch consisting of the local cheese platter with tomatoes, olives etc. It was the best lunch of our trip and we would have loved to have eaten here in the evening but we were only visiting for the day. The service was excellent and the waitress was friendly. The restaurant is in an old building with... More

The menu features a small selection of very Maltese food with many of the ingredients grown locally and by the owner. The view from the roof is excellent and if you visit during the quieter period of the day, you are bound to find a space as it can be quite busy at times. I would advice you visit the... More

Small menu..yes. makes choosing meals quicker and easier. Makesit easy for the female chef whom cooks alone to deliver so many delicious, authentic meals (most authentic i found in a month across the islands). She even had time to visit our table to get feedback and shared with me her secret ingredient in her rabbit stew which i promise to... More

We had the platters for lunch (cheeses, olives and sundried tomatoes) The food tasted so fresh and was very tasty. We loved the location as well in Gozo's Citadella. The pasta dishes looked amazing too but we were so full after sharing a platter. The service was excellent and the waitress made a big effort with our baby and brought... More

Having been left to our own devices for lunch during a tour of Victoria we came across the menu for this restaurant and decided to give it a go. From upstairs came the noise of a full dining room (or terrace) but we elected to sit inside. We shared a bowl of pasta and a loaf of bread, my wife... More

Our purpose for this day trip was to see the Citadel and have lunch at Ta' Rikardu. After wandering the paths of the fortress in the cloudy, rainy weather (the one day of dreary weather we had), we followed signs to the restaurant. It is actually just up the street to the left of the Cathedral. We entered and kept... More

You enter the old house and ascend the stairs through the kitchen area and finally up a narrow spiral staircase to the roof terrace with amazing views over the citadel and the cathedral. The food was delicious. The goat dish and rabbit stew were enjoyed with local wine. Bread aplenty was provided and the service was attentive but not intrusive.... More

We popped in whilst visiting the Citadel for a refresher and enjoyed a lovely bottle of Gozitan wine. It was that good we bought another bottle to take away! Thanks to the lovely Scottish lady from East Kilbride who served us and helped my wife selecting some Maltese silver filigree jewellery.
