This place is a gem and offers gorgeous sunset so make sure to get there in time for that. Service is outstanding and food is prepared to detail and amazingly good. It’s a ‘must go to’ restaurant and make sure to book cause it’s quite popular especially if you wish for a table on the veranda over looking the view. Vast menu and also offers daily specials. Very reasonable prices and the view comes for free ;) Only a short 15 minute walk uphill from Mgarr terminal so very easy to reach. Truly a lovely evening with my family :)

this place is an amazing place where someone can eat with a spectacular view over the archepelago of the Maltese Islands with views of Mgarr Harbour in Gozo. but that is not all. the food, service and ambience is no to be missed. Very good food and very well taken care of by the staff. for sure we will be back. they really care for gluten intollerant people and they made sure everything was in order.

Me and wife upon recommendation by our own son we made reservations at country Terrace restaurant in Gozo . We noticed the staff was extremely helpful and very attentive and one that was extra careful was Daniel . We had a fillet steak and pork steak respectively. The food was well presented and prepared and was very good and tasty . The dessert we choose a traditional sweet called IMQARET with ice cream and without hesitation it was so amazingly good . The restaurant has a fantastic view of the harbor so this completely complimented our nice evening. Well done to the management.

In spite of the fact that we went at the end of October and sat outside, it was not windy and there were big heaters nearby, as well as umbrella seating. The restaurant opens up a view over the bay and you can see the ferry port and Malta in the distance. Very pleasant atmosphere and very tasty food. I had the sea food spaghetti and my partner had the duck which came with 3 garnishes - potato wedges, steamed vegetables and potato fries - it was all very filling! For dessert we shared a Baileys fondant which also came with a caramel ice cream scoop. We were also given some liqueur "on the house" - one from carob, the other from hazelnuts (choice given), which topped off our dinner very nicely! The staff were friendly, especially Joseph and Kosta who took good care of us. A must visit if in Gozo!

About two weeks back, my friends and I had an absolute wonderful dinner here. We were immediately taken to our table and being constantly checked on by the waiters, and even the owner! Every single food was beautifully presented and the taste was out of this world. In regards to the atmosphere, it’s extremely exquisite, spacious and comfortable - Highly recommended for any specific occasions or family dinners/brunches. Lastly, due to the extreme change in which the pandemic has put on us. Country Terrace have taken care of every precaution there is possible, making it safer and more comfortable to enjoy your favorite dish with a beautiful view.

My wife, 8 year old son and I had lunch at this restaurant on a beautiful sunny November afternoon with a fantastic view over the harbour. Whilst we had reserved a table, most of the tables in fact offer a great view. The food was very good, in particular, the fresh fish "catch of the day" and value for money is excellent. The waiters are very friendly and accommodating. As an aside, the restaurant is also very child friendly. All in all, a very good time was had by all

Decided to visit this restaurant after seeing some good reviews on trip advisor and because of the view(the only amazing thing about this restaurant). To start off we had to wait for over 15mins to be seated at our reserved table and our table was half located in the sun due to lack of umbrellas, but I wouldn’t complain about such things. I started to feel uncomfortable when the waiters seemed that they had no idea what they were doing, dropping complimentary bread on the floor, cutlery and beverages(some on clients too). We were given complimentary bruschetta and bread which were nice to enjoy despite all the chaos going around. We ordered our starters and mains. The food is very average in my opinion, even the sauces along the meats are very basic and overly salty. My favourite food from our experience would be the bruschetta and bread funnily enough. I would like to also add that the drinks are overpriced. To what seemed the owner is rude towards his employees and shouts at them in front of his own clients. It was our first-time visiting Country Terrace and probably the last too. Wouldn’t recommend for a nice dinner/lunch.

Hayley To start with, I would like to apologizing that you had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. As a sunday Lunch the majority of peoples come all at ones so you had to wait . to be seated. As you have mentioned that you where partial sitting in the sun, as you have mentioned , I would like to apgogize, as well the sun turns so some times the sun find a way to get in and if you have told me I would had fixed it. My personal are well trained and educated. By seeing me correcting polite (Not as you have mentioned ) there is nothing wrong. As well if they have dropped something , I think we are all human ........... I assumed that we where not to your liking, But never mind If you like to discuss the one or two issue that you had you contact us. We take all the necessity precaution so the clients always go out from the restaurant satisficed Looking forward for your call .

We decided to eat out at Country Terrace based on all the fantastic reviews we read so our expectations were high. The restaurant was extremely busy and the waiters were struggling to manage and at one point we were told that the kitchen stopped taking orders due to the influx of patrons present for dinner. Although, this is not a valid excuse at any good restaurant, the service was good and the wait for us was not terrible. Therefore, that didn’t bother me much. The view was fantastic as you have an uninterrupted view of the harbour. What was somewhat of a let down was the food which basically is what a restaurant is mostly about besides service. The food was average but not brilliant. I preferred the starter than the main. The starter was ravioli - they were good but fell short of being amazing. The sauce wasn’t good and it felt that taste wise it didn’t pair well with the ravioli. My main was quite disappointing. I ordered calamari. They were drowned in a very tasteless and horrible sauce which again not only did not pair well with the calamari but felt that there whole main was precooked and just heated up for us. The chips although they tasted good were cold. All in all based on the reviews I was expecting to be wowed but I wasn’t.

Good food, nice service at table, unwelcoming attitude at reception I was gifted a voucher of €200 for my birthday, unfortunately I could not break into two. It had to be used in one go. Being just a couple makes it quite difficult for us to spend two hundred euro at one meal so we had to invite two other guests to join us. This was the first hurdle. When I called to make a reservation the girl in the other end told me that she couldn’t give us a table on the edge but promised me a good table. On arrival we were allocated the worst corner table ever, close to the kitchen when several other tables were free. The maître said that they were all fully booked.. I refused it and the owner, seeing that we were unhappy, allocated us a better table - there were still two vacant tables. The food came and I must say that it was very good, service at table was excellent and the servers were very attentive. When we left at 23.30 the two tables which had been ‘previously reserved’ were still vacant. Unfortunately this left a bit of a bad taste.

This was where I set up dinner to celebrate a close friend’s birthday and can say without a doubt that we couldn’t have chosen a better venue. Everything from the appetizers, the main course (rare to medium rare fillet for me) as well as the dessert was amazing. What made the whole setting even better was the unique view of the fliegu. The waiters made our experience even better by explaining different dishes and guiding us in food selection, especially when it came to the appetizers. I will for sure come back to this restaurant.

What a delightful find! I am so very glad we discovered Country Terrace at Mgarr, Gozo. The warm hospitality by the Owner and Staff upon entering and departing makes one feel as if you were dining at a friend’s house. The food was exquisite especially the rib-eye which was cooked to perfection. The indescribable panoramic view overlooking the Mgarr harbour is to die for. The owner upon realizing that it was my Birthday, surprised me with a small cake accompanied by congratulations music making my day extra special. Dear Joseph ,Katie and all the delightful staff, we are extremely grateful for the warm greeting ,generosity and the superb food you offer in your sought-after restaurant. We are surely coming back again this summer. See you soon!

It has been over 3 years since we were last able to came to Malta and visited this restaurant overlooking the Gozo Ferry Harbour. To my relief it is still as great as ever with great food and a harbour view to die for. The complimentary bruschetta pre-starter was lovely whilst my wife raved about her deep fried brie with figs starter followed by the fresh made ravioli with local sauce. I devoured everything especially the pork tomahawk with aniseed jus main course whilst we both both drunk too much wine and enjoyed the great sea view from our outdoor overlooking the harbour table. Because the restaurant is a bit out of the way from more popular Malta lunch times always have space but I recommend pre booking on the website which works perfectly. This mid price top food and service fine dining family run restaurant is one to visit and offers great value. We are definitely looking forward to when we can get back again.

Although locals, we had not been to this place in quite some time. Went for a dinner and it was amazing. Head waiter Massimo greeted us with his charming and energetic personality and made sure we were well served throughout the night which made our dinner feel even more special. Food was great (tortello con ragu di cinghiale highly recommended) and the view was obviously amazing. Service was slightly slow at times but it was expected as restaurant was very busy. This was not an issue as it allowed us to soak in the view and the friendly interactions with Massimo and the owner more than made up for it. Highly recommended and thanks for a great night

We visited Country Terrace on a Saturday evening, and inspite of being fully booked the open air environment, well spaced tables and a non smoking policy inside the restaurant gave us peace of mind in the current situation. We did arrive a bit early and in spite of this an army of waiters was already on site and hence service remained brilliant even as the restaurant got busier. The food was divine! On this particular occasion I tried the Balanzoni and the Chicken Roulade. Both amazing dishes! The Manager was courteous, attentive and with a pleasant sense of humour. Amazing how this guy was flying between the tables to ensure that the customers had a great experience! We pre booked and given that we were going to have a significantly large dog at the table, this was taken into consideration and we were offered a table where we would not bother other patrons. We did not leave the restaurant without a complimentary drink either! I couldn't ask any better out of an evening out, and country terrace will surely see us returning countless times!

If it were not for the view, I would give this restaurant only one star. The food is mediocre, especially considered the price, and the service subpar. On the evening we were there, the restaurant was busy and, apparently, only one waiter was in charge of collecting the orders. That meant that, after he introduced himself and gave us the menus, we couldn't get hold of him for about half hour, and even when we finally got his attention, he was in such a hurry that he left our table before we were finished placing the order. I had to order the last item while he was already halfway to the next table. My wife and I shared a large fish and the waiter who served us didn't really seem to have a clue about filleting it. My wife's portion was a bit mangled but still looked like a fish fillet, my half was reduced to a heap of small fish pieces, full of bones. With a small additional effort, he could have made a mousse. In general service seemed to be cahotic. Usually, waiters are assigned to specific sections of the restaurant, but in this case there didn't seem to be such an arrangement. We had a feeling, also looking at the tables around us, that the personnel "swarmed" all over the (fairly large) restaurant, so if we had questions or wishes, we had to wait until for some reason someone would drift close to our table. When the waiters remembered about our section of the restaurant, they came over, did their job quickly, and using the minimum amount of words. Not impolite, but certainly not very friendly. During the whole dinner, nobody asked us how the food was or if everything was ok. Seriously, the only reason to come here is the view, but you can enjoy that for free and have dinner at a different place. That would be a much better solution.
