Staying in Malta, we decided to go to Gozo for dinner. Porto Vecchio is conveniently located near the Ferry on a lovely Marina. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the quaint yet elegant ambiance of this restaurant. The service was excellent and incredibly attentive. The wine suggested (Marsamena - a local Gozo blend) went perfectly with what felt like a home cooked, yet elegantly presented dinner. The Yellowfin Tuna cooked for us was done to perfection and the vegetable sides of potato, carrots and marrow gave the dinner the unpretentious home cooked meal feeling.

After missing our ferry, we walked back to the restaurant and were welcomed back by the owner with a greatly appreciated offer of a table and a lovely cup of coffee.

I would recommend Porto Vecchio to anyone without hesitation and look forward to visiting again.

My only regret is that it's been a while wanting to treat myself and friends to Porto Vecchio, and left summer nights pass by, as such we had to dine inside because of rain and strong winds last friday night. I still like the decor inside, very good selection both at the bar and winery. We were welcomed by Walter who i happen to know whilst studying at the my workplace Institution of Tourism Studies and seen to our table nicely set, both linen and cutlery all detailed and in place. Pity a few fish on display because not much catch due to rough sea, but i still enjoyed my favourite calamari cooked in wine sauce as main, and cevice for starter which tasted heavenly.

We found this restaurant while we had time to kill before taking the ferry to Ċirkewwa - a dusty walk along the harbour front, with construction work going on at the time. The restaurant was a real find - welcoming staff and an attractive menu. The fish on offer were brought out for us to inspect, and having selected one of the snapper for two, we relaxed over a glass of local wine and a delicious bean spread while it was being cooked in wine. When it came, it was superb, and the vegetables served with it were also perfectly done. The view over the harbour added a pleasant backdrop to the meal, and the complimentary limoncello left us with a lasting good impression. The personnel and the food make this the best restaurant we visited on our tour of the Maltese islands.
