This was a lucky find, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the ferry port at Mgarr the Porto Vecchio was one of those places you could sit and stay, have another glass of ..... whatever takes your fancy, and we did

We also tucked into their rissotto, with salmon and asparagus, just wonderful and easily enough for two in one dish

It was our son's 30th birthday and we were a party of 9 plus a child of almost 3. We had pre-booked and told Chris why we were coming and the greeting couldn't have been warmer - our table was in a great spot, with super views of the harbour and marina and the staff made us feel really welcome. Since we were last there, they have put glass screens on the harbour wall which really adds to the ambience.
Food was awesome, superbly displayed and with a great choice to suit all tastes. Wines are excellent value and the service, whilst attentive, was never intrusive.
The final delight was when Chris and his staff appeared with a birthday cake, compliments of the house; a really thoughtful gesture that was much appreciated by us all.

This restaurant is a must for a top quality meal in a lovely location at a very reasonable price.
Our thanks to Chris and his colleagues for making such a special night!

Being a veggie the menu looked a bit sparse but they cooked a wonderful ravioli with asparagus and truffle sauce. The sweets were to die for and the atmosphere lovely. The carnivores with me were equally enthusiastic about their food. Will certainly eat there again and again.

I am baffled by the negatve comments about this restaurant. The meal I had yesterday exceeded my expectations. Not only was the food absolutely delicious and beautiful but the chef made this amazing vegetarian dish for one of our party who was vegetarian even though it was not on the menu. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was amazing. All in all I would highly recommend this restaurant.
