This quiet pizza joint, a few streets from the main square, is by far the best pizza in Gozo. Tal-Furnar is family-run, now in the hands of the recently married 3rd generation who were extremely welcoming, attentive, kind and conversational. As visitors to the island,...More

While in Malta & Gozo we ate in some up-market restaurants, but having a snack lunch here was one of the highlights of our holiday. You can't beat simple ingredients, cooked well, and served by the friendly owners. The bread and pizzas were delicious

Were on our way to Marsalforn when we came across this little bakery, some foreigners were having dinner outside and we decided to have a snoop. My wife's decision that we should give it a try proved a very wise decision. The food served is...More

Family run business that's both bakery and restaurant. Charmingly, and possibly unintentionally rustic interior; delicious food, local wine, friendly service. Watch your pizza going in to the traditional oven :-) Local homemade specialities.

Excellent food & plenty of it. Thankfully, they provide boxes in order to take home the mountain of food that you cannot eat because you have been drawn in by the wonderful starters. Will we ever learn here? This traditional unpretentious restaurant is well known...More

Tal-Furnar Restaurant is a family run business. We specialise in Local Gozitan Food such as Local Lamb, Rabbit and various other meats which are cooked in our hundred year old stone oven. We firmly believe in the farm to table concept and we grow and make most of the ingredients we use our selves. From the local sheep cheese to the bread and vegetables and wine too we make it all as it gives us a great pleasure to serve food which we are proud of and k ow where it came from.
