We had several really lovely meals here and it was such a joy for me to have such a wide choice. Nearly everything on the menu could be gluten free. I’m coeliac and this is vital. I was confident that they understood and they had...More

We turned up at the quaint place about half an hour before the advertised closing time to find the owner and his son just about to shut up shop in a Monday night. We politely asked if we could eat there and he immediately welcomed...More

This is the true Italian kitchen in Gozo. The owner is from Catania and his wife cooks these amazing dishes. The real Italian experience on a plate. I ate better here then I did in all the Maltese restaurants. Prices are a bit high for...More

Even before we started eating we were offered the excuse that the chef had just resigned, leaving just the owner and his wife to do the meals. To be fair, if that story was true he should just have closed the restaurant or paid us...More

I think that this is not a review about us. Il-Panzier Restaurant is a family running one. We never had a chef. in fact the client is talking about a chef that left, and about some main course that they had eaten. But yesterday we...More

After reading through Trip Advisor we decided to eat here as it was the only place that didn’t have flies mentioned in the review! The restaurant is really quaint and you are literally sitting in someone’s garden with a makeshift permanent gazebo for cover. We...More

Pleasant sitting, very nice staff. Delicious food and excellent wine. I warmly recommend. The restaurant is out off from the main tourist side, it pays to find it.

Discovered this rustic restaurant on a recent trip to Gozo. Wandering the quaint cobbled back streets behind the square, we saw the door to this restaurant and remembering the good reviews, popped in on the off chance. We were seated by the owner who explained...More

My favourite place of all time. Been visiting this place ever since 1999. Unfortunately wasn't able to visit for the past few years but just been tonight. It is unique, special, purely homely, still run by the same couple who are also the chefs. Unique...More
