Ta’ Tona, Restaurant and bar, Gozo.

An absolute gem amongst the other fine restaurants found in Mgarr harbour. It is a family business, run today by Brother and Sister.
The name "Ta' Tona" is derived from the nickname bestowed on their Mother by the local fishermen when it was a friendly cafe and meeting place.
Now an exciting and entertaining place to eat and drink with generous portions providing excellent value for money, Ta’ Tona’s menu is comprehensive with a delightful originality to some dishes. The seafood is extremely fresh and is prepared with care, to the customers request and cooked to perfection. The service is excellent with cheerful, attentive staff ready to provide a personal touch.
The global wine list caters for all tastes with prices ranging from €5.50 for a carafe of fresh and palatable local house wine, to €60.00 for a Tuscan classic. A range of beers and spirits are also available.
Open from 6pm, except Tuesdays, Ta’ Tona may be less busy up until 8pm when the Gozitan’s and Maltese like to eat, so booking may be necessary to avoid disappointment.

Me and my partner loved Ta Tona so much that we ate there twice on our holiday to Gozo. The food was delicious but the overall service and atmosphere was probably the best I have ever experienced. The owner and staff are incredibly attentive and incredibly lovely people. They make you feel at home whilst serving brilliant food.

I could not recommend this restaurant enough.

Everything we've tried at Ta' Tona has been delicious; local cusine cooked perfectly and served simply with generous fresh salads and vegetables. But it's the fresh fish, good wine, lovely ambience and terrific service that really stand out. Our boat's been moored in Mgarr Marina for a couple of years and, even if Ta Tona wasn't just up the road, we would go out of way to get there.

We eat out at various restaurants in Gozo but hadn't tried Ta Tona until friends told us that it was very good value. We went with friends & enjoyed a very good meal with excellent service. The fresh fish was particularly good &, as our friends had promised, it was very good value for money. Highly recommended.

My husband and I ate here several times during our last stay in Gozo. The restaurant is cosy and nicely decorated, with a great, reasonably priced menu and a friendly host. We tried different starters and main courses, my husband especially enjoyed the pork dish made with sambucca. The wine list was good, lots of local choice. The family running the place were very enthusiastic about the menu, and during conversation told us of how they spend time experimenting with new ideas.
