Just had Christmas lunch at Patrick's..have not been there for many years due to one thing and another, and was so happy to have the chance to eat there on Christmas Day.Boy, does Patrick know how to create a scene to make you smile and feel all warm in side.His restaurant was beautifully 'trimmed'.the lighting was perfect, so everyone looked 'fab' and the centre piece Christmas tree in the middle of the restaurant was truly beautiful
.Everything was perfect, Michael Buble singing in background, candles, the waitresses and waiters looked the part with tasteful 'Santa hats'..crackers on the table.....little touches that meant so much to us..now to the food!
We had no idea if it was going to be a 'set menu' or not,and as it turned out, we had a 'special's menu' plus the full a la carte, which was great.....turkey was on the menu for those who wanted it, but we went for samosas to start, followed by a ribeye steak and vegetables.
Lovely nibbles and bread to eat before the starter, and a nice bottle of bubbly hit the spot.
Starter was delicious, as was the steak, a good sized portion, perfectly cooked and it melted in your mouth.Vegetables were 'al dente' and the roasted potatoes were crispy.The presentation was gorgeous and we loved the fact that they give you plenty of time between courses, this comes as standard..no need to say 'don't rush '
Crackers pulled, we went for dessert of creme brulee and lemon tart with cream.
Heaven on a plate!
We spent 3 very enjoyable hours here, being well looked after and definitely feeling that today was Christmas day, spent with strangers, but feeling like everyone was a friend.What more can you ask.
Cannot fault a thing.Will be back before next Christmas for sure.Thank you to everyone who made this the 'perfect day'

I've been meaning to write this review for quite some time. My boyfriend always choose this restaurant for a special occasion or when we want a romantic dinner. The good service and divine food always surpasses our expectations. I never ate the same food as I always take the specials and was never disappointed.The huge choice in wines is a big plus, even though we always end up having the same one! But wine lovers will be spoilt for choice here.

You cannot miss this restaurant if you are visiting Gozo. If you're looking for classy silver service and amazing food this is the place to go.

Been meaning to write a review for Patrick's for quite some time. Having eaten there 3 times already, i felt that it was about time. My boyfriend and I live on the sister island of Malta, but the first time that we ate at Patrick's while staying in Gozo, we loved it so much that we took the ferry to Gozo just to eat at Patrick's and go back to Malta. It is definitely our favourite restaurant in Gozo.

The food, wine list and service are all top notch. However, why 4 stars and not 5? Well, the first two times that we went, I would have definitely given it a 5 star rating. However, a whole year had passed from our last visit, and when we went again last week, the menu was still exactly the same, even the "specials" were the same as last year. We overheard the owner mention to another couple that they were planning some re-decorating this year. Hopefully he will consider a change of menu as well.

Don't get me wrong, for someone who is going for the first time, I highly recommend Patrick's. However, if you fall in love with the restaurant, like we did, and plan on becoming a "regular", you will eventually get bored with the same items on the menu.

Other than that, this is a fantastic restaurant with absolutely delicious food and if you're a fan of wine, you will have a ball here!

Once again, Patrick's Lounge has managed to impress. Great risotto with Roquefort cheese, followed by a sumptuous Chateaubriand. Great atmosphere and superb wine. Will definitely be back.
