Christian and his team at Arzella never disappoint. When it comes to fresh local produce, especially fish, this is the place to head to in Gozo. It was our umpteenth visit to the restaurant, and this time we went for a relatively late lunch. The experience was amazing as usual with a delicious mixed fish platter coupled with some chilled Moscato.

Totally recommend this restaurant for one of the best meals you can have around the island!

Although known mostly for its "fishy" meals, this time around I went for a non-fish selection and the result was simply MOUTHWATERING !

I started with a pasta Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino, apparently a simple dish to come up with but, in reality, extremely difficult to get just right. The frsh pasta I was served was absolutely faultless ! The balance between the red pepper and the garlic was perfect and the olive oilabsorbed the tastes perfectly without the frying "aftertaste" that is imparted by the garlic if the temperature of the oil is not maintained just right. Last but not least, the fresh parsley was just enough to give it fragrance without taking off anything from the bite imparted by the garlic and red pepper.

This was followed by an absolutely DIVINE Fiorentina cooked to just the right point and served stylishly boned and served on a lava tile.

Definitly an experience for any foodie ! ! !

We often eat out in Gozo and this is a restaurant that we have for some reason, we have previously missed. What a great discovery for us though so much so that we ate there twice and both meals were fantastic. The menu has it's fair share of fish but there is an excellent selection of other dishes and local specialities. What must also be mentioned is the service which, despite eating at peak times, was very good. Looking forward to our return trip next year.

The octopus stew was perfect, moderately spicy and very well prepared. The fried local fishes were gently prepared, with proper attention. The service was friendly and relatively rapid. The prices are reasonable and easily affordable. This restaurant is highly recommended if you travel on the island of Gozo.
