Charming place in Victoria, with a focus on creative cuisine. Starters were excellent, specially the falafels and bresaola. Main dishes were quite good but less impressive than the starters. Service was extremely kind and friendly. Wine options were relatively scarce the night we went there...More

Tucked away in victorias small streets we found this wonderful place. We were warmly welcomed by the hostess. The place is very romantic and we had a great meal. The rabbit in three different ways is a delight. I can fully recommend this restaurant

I always try to fit in a meal at this restaurant when I visit Gozo & yet again we weren't disappointed. The food & service were excellent as always. We'll be back in October so will be booking a table.

The service here is absolutely top notch. The staff were very attentive and friendly. It's a running joke that my partner often picks a better main course than I do and I usually enviously watch him eat a tastier dish than mine, however for the...More
