It would be very easy to miss this restaurant as it is both off the normal roads in Victoria and very understated from the outside. There is no parking on the street so be prepared to park and walk for a bit if you're coming by car. From the door you go down into the cellar of a building and... More

We had tried several times to eat at this delightful and quaint little restaurant and finally managed it on our last trip to Gozo and boy it was worth finding, parking's not easy but is it ever in Gozo but once you go inside you shall see why it was worth the effort, good food, excellent service, well stocked wine...

This was the first time at this restaurant and we really enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant is tucked up a back street but there is abundant parking in the near vicinity. We liked the decor and friendly relaxed ambience. The menu has lots of unusual dishes all of which sounded worth trying , we started with a portobello mushroom tailored to... More

We chose this restaurant based on tripadvisor and and local recommendation. We arrived at 19:05 just after opening. We were the 2nd table in area we sat. The greeting was a little cold. " do you have a reservation?" "no" "sit here please" . We heard this same "greeting" used on the next walk-in guests. We ordered drinks and food.... More

The chef likes to experiment with ingredients combinations. Usually it works out very well. Always fresh and meticulously prepared. Everything we had was excellent, but be prepared for some creative interpretations, in the good sense.

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.
