Extremely rude staff, visited many places in the Island and this is definitely one where I would never come back. Higiene is unknown to them, food not the greatest. People on this island are lovely except these ones!

Food is good but the owner need to have some lessons how to treat customers good not yelling at them. Our friend came to pick us up to give us a lift and we weren't ready from eating so we invited him to have a seat with us. Surprisingly we heard him shouting and ordered one of his staff to... More

We visited here a few years ago and my wife has always raved about the beef olives so it was on our list of places to go to this time and it didn't disappoint. I've read reviews about this place complaining about the service but to be honest I couldn't fault them. We got a table straight away although several... More

One of the best pizzas i've tasted. Pizza base is truly lovely. Ambience is uniquely gozitan. Visiting Toni il furnar is a must !

We visited this restaurant towards the end of our 2 week holiday in Xaghra based on trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We loved the location in a quiet street just opposite the museum of toys and it was good to get away from the major construction work currently going on in the square. The food was great home...

Situated a couple of hundred metres from the main square in Xhagra, Tal Furnar is a small family run restaurant (and bakery by day), serving typical food of the region. Claiming the oldest (or is it last?) stone oven in Gozo as a selling point (not sure what's actually cooked in it though), we decided to give it a try... More

We followed opening times given by TA. Unfortunately we went there twice during the week and on 2nd time owner told us that hè serves the food only Fri-Sun..we lived close so no problem,but if you follow real day planning not really nice..

Very tasty food and good homemade wines! The place is family run and all of the staff are very kind - they even gave us a complementary fresh bread when we left! The bread is baked in stone oven and is delicious!
