We live in Gozo and are always excited to find somewhere special to eat. We visited Oleander , Xaghra, for the first time in January this year and it is now our favourite restaurant on the island. It has all the right ingredients - warm welcome, truly excellent food, reasonable prices, wonderful service, charming ambiance. We go there now as often as possible. If the weather is good we eat outside - wonderful local lamb which literally falls off the bone, venison steaks, pink and succulent, rabbit in a rich, wholesome sauce - if its cold, we sit inside, warm and cozy, an ideal winter location. The restaurant changed hands in May of last year and the new owners deserve a huge pat on the back for their stirling efforts. Everything is bought fresh daily - and it shows. They care about food here - they want you to feel special and they succeed. We cannot praise it enough - can't think of anything better than a long, relaxing lunch here, with old friends, the perfect way to spend a cold winter's day.

We had a lovely meal at the Oleander, pleasant service and a good choice of food on the menu. The wine was reasonable and delicious and the atmosphere was warm, relaxed and friendly. A really nice evening out. We would have eaten there again but were so spoilt for choice in the village we didn't get round to it. Would definitely have eaten there twice if we had been staying longer.
