We stumbled across this restaurant when spending two weeks on Malta and enjoyed dining there so much we were back within days. A lovely view and the ferry trip to/from Malta added to the evening; the food was beautifully presented and included complimentary bruschetta and nibbles. I had carpaccio of smoked salmon and tuna with mint and pasta stuffed with formaggio, pear and walnut. The wine list was interesting and extensive If we make it back to Gozo we will definitely go and try again to manage a pudding next time!.

The setting of the restuarant is lovely, terrace is looking over the bay. Food was tasty - we had the bread with olives and sundried tomatoes before our starters arrived. We had carpaccio - beef and fish, both lovely. We both had pasta as the main - tasty but portions are huge. Lovely wine made the dinner complete.
The owner of the restuarant was serving us and he was not only charming but also an entertainer. Funny and very attentive, which made the whole meal such a lovely experience. Highly recommened!

The restaurant was lovely, Joseph the owner is charming and funny, the view is unbeatable. Sadly the food was just ok. Not bad, but not as good as it could be. Overcooked pasta. I had mussels in a very tomatoey sauce to start then seafood spaghetti, which was basically my starter with spaghetti. Not bad, I would go again, but they could maybe up the game a bit. Complimentary drinks after the meal, which included the best grappa I have ever had.

We went to Gozo for Mother's Day and decided to try Country Terrace that we found from our Malta Discount Card book. The outside terrace is amazing because of it's unmatched views of the harbour and comino and also it was a beautiful day. The staff were great and also funny, very helpful and polite.

We were a table of 6 and ordered different food which everyone was very happy with, I had an Irish Steak which was Perfect :) Can't complain on nothing and will visit again surely!!

The main advantage of this restaurant has to be the views from the terrace, stunning. Unfortunately it was too cold for us to sit out there for dinner. Inside the restaurant is also pleasant, the service was good, a really efficient, friendly waitress who was very stretched with a large party and numerous other guests, Not employing sufficient staff was a mistake and we were struck at the huge effort she put in to serve everyone. It sometimes looked as if someone else was meant to be helping but if so she restricted herself to laying a few tables and talking to local guests.

The food was fairly good, a very nice free appetiser, followed by the breaded cheese which was very reminiscent of ones we buy at home in the supermarket rather than home made. The main course was good, better for the carnivore than vegetarian. The pear and cheese filled pasta was very good but the pesto sauce not so tasty. Dessert was very good. We enjoyed the meal. We would visit again, especially if warm enough for the terrace and we would hope that the staffing levels had increased.
