We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Gozo as we enjoyed the food and the setting so much. We were lucky enough to get a table outside right next to the Harbour side on the first occasion we visited (but the second visit was on a Saturday night and most of the tables had been reserved so...

We ate here once again as a family and were warmly welcomed back by Chris Cassar the owner and his staff who were very attentive all evening. The menu choice was excellent, with innovative fresh fish dishes on offer. Our meat choices (quail and chicken) were beautifully cooked. All portions were huge and we didn't do justice to the chef's... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to get a marina view table when we visited Porto Vecchio. The food portions were so big we shared the risotto starter. The service was second to none and the staff were very friendly, and even helped me with my Maltese. I would recommend this restaurant as a must go.

This restaurant is only separated from the sea by a glass screen. It is a slight walk along the promenade that runs alongside the Marina. Mgarr is a great place for eating and this restaurant was no exception. Very good service, atmosphere and food.

Ate here last night and really enjoyed the evening. We both had 3 courses, 2 beers and shared a bottle of local wine and it came to ~€85. We both had seafood starters (tagliatelle with octopus, calamari) and they were generous portions! The tagliatelle was delicious, as was the calamari ; probably some of the best calamari we've had. Again... More

We had the pleasure of having a beautiful meal here, the owners were the most charming friendly people, the food was outstanding and the ambiance by the water was lovely. The duck pasta was exquisite, the rabbit and truffle risotto to die for, and the ice cream was heAvenly! Must visit here while visiting this lovely island.

Food outstanding , but not as welcoming as previous visits to the Island , staff are still the same but you felt as if you were doing them a favour by being there, which is a shame as there food is always fantastic and far the best place to eat on the island . So thus the four star rating.... More

On a nice summer evening, overlooking a marina, food, wine and good company ... what else would you want. The food was excellent - portion sizes are big. We took half our starters back to the boat. Wine prices were reasonable and the staff great.

Practically in the sea! Ask for a table right on the water - beautiful. Good food, great service and friendly staff. Highly recommended
