This is a top notch restaurant......excellent service and incredible food. The seafood is divine and the meats are cooked to perfection. The wine list is extensive. The beauty of this place is its location. Being seated outside on the veranda you will get the impression that you are on a cruise ship. The sea is only 100m below this veranda.... More

This is a casual restaurant at the top of the hill opposite Xlendi bay. The views are fantastic. The menu is varied and very well priced. The staff are helpful and the service is good. Would recommend booking before to avoid disappointment.

We returned here again this year after a wonderful experience last year and were not disappointed with the excellent food served in this lovely family run restaurant. The gnocchi was fantastic and rack of lamb was the best I have ever tasted.The ladies had a mountain of home made ice-cream for dessert which they absolutely loved! We reserved a table... More

Yesterday we enjoyed a cosy dinner at ic-Cima. My dog was allowed too. Excellent service. Is usually even better during the day for lunch when you can enjoy the view from the terrace.

I even asked for rabbit in 2 plates (otherwise with 5 bits it... More

We came here on a Sunday evening and it wasn't very busy when we dined. The view over the bay of the sunset was spectacular. The lampuki was the best I have ever tasted, my partner's dish of rabbit was the best he'd ever tasted, and the service was efficient and friendly. All you could ask for!

The place has a great location - particularly if you sit on the terrace with a view of the bay.... The food is solid - good Maltese dishes, simple but delicious entrees made with seasonal fish and seafood. Did not try desserts but the food was good.

Booked a table here for 2 a couple of weeks before our visit and specifically requested the table at the front in order to make the most of the gorgeous view. Our request was met. We got there early whej they were still setting up and they were ever so accommodating despite us being there at an inconvenient time. Every... More

A fantastic view of the sunset from the balcony was the start of a lovely evening. The best rabbit stew that I've ever tasted and my girlfriend's Lampuki was porbably also the best that I've tried. All washed down with Gozitan Chardonnay. Excellent food and service at a very reasonable price.

Earlier last week, my wife and I spent a day in Gozo and we decided to have lunch at Ic-Cima. We did not regret it. The view of Xlendi Bay from the terrace was magnificent and the food was first class. We shared a lampuki pie for starters (which is done differently from the way we do it at home)... More
