This restaurant used to be a bakery I think. And the bread is delicious! It looks very low key from the outside - but is always full of locals - a good sign. It seems like a small family business and the service was exceptional...More

Just arrived on Gozo and hunted for place to have lunch. Not only does it seem shut but a little deserted (though you can walk right in). Shame because I was looking forward to it.

Hi Lizzy I am so sorry that you came and we were closed. We were closed for a few day for the local feast festivities. But we still make bread everyday.
