“The AAA+ Restaurant”

Otters Bistro & Lounge
Ranked #6 of 59 Restaurants in Marsalforn
Cuisines: Mediterranean
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Lunch, Reservations
Description: Mediterranean/Grill with spectacular sea views, al fresco or indoors - during summer, part of the area is converted into a lido with deckchairs and cocktail bar. During the winters we also serve al fresco but we also have indoor availability. We specialize in succulent Mediterranean dishes and fresh fish, while we also have good sized tasty steaks. The area is big enough to organize special events like staff parties and special functions by the water's edge. Booking is always a must at this unique spot in Marsalforn.

As i always write this is one of high rated restaurants on this island .This summer my wife and i , visited otters very frequently with maltese friends and foreign ones too. They were amazed with the view, and the high quality service the waiters give .Regarding the food all of our friends agree that it is exquisite . Now that summer is nearly over i suggest on the wintery days one should be there on sunny days to feel the quietness and enjoy the fresh air .Last thing goes to Mr Albert Lupi the manager and all his staff .Keep it up guys

Right on the waterfront, Otters is in a spectacular location. We did not book, but were still able to get a table directly looking out over the bay. So, a great start. The service was polite, good and speedy. We had a selection of fish and shellfish for two and it was all cooked really well. My husband felt that the shellfish would have benefitted however, from being in a pot with a lid, rather than just in open silver foil. I asked to see the desserts, but unlike the mains, which were obviously cooked on site, the desserts were simply out of the freezer. I had hoped for some home made desserts. At the top end of our budget, especially since we only had one course and no wine, we enjoyed our meal out, but probably would not return.

Thank you for taking your time in writing this review.
We are glad that you enjoyed the location food and service.
The shellfish you are mentioning is part of a fush platter served on a silver tray. The purpose of the shellfish in the foil is to eliminate the liquid from the shells from running all around the dish onto the fish.
Desserts are kept close un individual containers as to prevent them from drying in the fridge display.
We are positive we will see you back in the near future aa to provide you with good food and service like always.
Thank you.

We arrived unannounced at about 10:30pm, we were very tired, hungry and soaking wet, with the heavy rain.
The staff welcomed us with a big smile, quickly prepared a table and within a short time we were enjoying our favourite dishes, dessert and all.
To top it up, we accidentally dropped and broke a vinegar bottle, and again the staff rose to the occassion, clearing up the mess.
Thank you

Ate here on 2 occasions whilst visiting Gozo, had not read the reviews so came by chance and what a lovely lunch we had on both occasions.
My Husband had the Gozo cheese salad both days which was delicious and I had calamari once and then mussels,delicious. The wine and beer were also very good.
The restaurant has an amazing setting, is ultra clean and has a lovely relaxed ambience.
Highly recommend and we will go again when we return to the Island.
It’s so special when you find a truly great place.
