Went there for dinner on a Friday. Greeted with a smile and showed to a comfy table. Their bruschetta is amazing, and you can choose two types and they split it half and half. Had some pasta afterwards as we were not in the mood for meaty dishes. It was super. Service was good, some waiters better than others. Will... More

Food was really good, however we waited 1hr 45 mins for our meal. They only told us there is a long waiting time after we complained. We then received a 10% discount on our bill.

Almost central and should benefit from its location in the capital and close to the much improved Citadel. Often the evening menues are great an sometimes the food and service also is. Delightful building and couple who own it but not always run it.Historic farmhouse in town but parking a nightmare ..Why does George not rent some space nearby to... More

Very efficient way to book via FB. The place is nice and the food is good but the service was not so good. We had a starter and a main but gave up on the desert as the menu for the sweets never made it to our table. Will possibly give it another try ...

If you are looking for a traditional Gozo place. Maldonado is a good option. Nice atmosphere in a traditional lime stone building, good menu, with suggestions of the week, and a reasonable priced wine list. I had a Gotizian platter for one, but it could be share by two, with many Gozo specialities. I reserved the goat cheese for dessert.... More

Never heard of this place and found it on trip advisor. The place is a very cosy with only a few meters away from the parking area. We were very welcome by the owner of the restaurant. The cooks are Italian and as you can expect the food is top notch. Service excellent although to be fair it is Sunday... More

We went to Maldonadao for my wife's birthday expecting, after browsing some of the reviews, a good place to eat something good in a quiet place. But it was much better than we expected. The atmosphere was brilliant; staff taking good care of us and a not too long menu which ensured exquisite, fresh food and the dessert was literally... More

We went there for the first and will go again and again. Food is divine. Everybody is so friendly and make you feel at home from the minute you arrive until you leave. I really enjoyed every minute of our meal . Well done and keep it up

You'll need to explore the backstreets of Victoria to find food worth hunting for, but once here you'll be glad you did.Off the tourist track and with none of the traps, Maldonado Bistro is the sort of place only locals know about but with the food and ambiance to charm all. Our menu is a satisfying mix of the best local delicacies, bruschetta, pasta, grills and salads. So go exploring and discover a spot to treasure.
