Recently had lunch here with my family - 2 members were fine as carnivores, however 2 were vegans and sadly, very little on offer apart from chips or a bowl of plain vegetables. Such a shame that restaurants in Gozo aren't moving with the times,...More

Fresh fish every day, there's a display of the fish available throughput the day/evening to select from. To be honest on Gozo it would be very unusual for restaurants not to have their daily catches displayed, given most... More

Situated right on the water's edge and next to the statue of St. Andrew in the fishermen's area of the bay, The Boat House Restaurant is ably run by Joseph Attard and his wife Rose. It has established itself as a must visit restaurant when visiting Gozo by Maltese and foreigners alike. The location enjoys the warm sunshine on winter afternoons and romantic sunsets. The choice of starters and main courses is endless. On top of that, there are the 'Specialities of the Day'. The fish display is a clear statement about the freshness of the daily catch. All items on the menu are prepared with ingredients of the highest quality. The selection of in-house desserts is tempting. The Wine List includes a large variety of local and foreign wines to please all wine lovers. Service is professional, fast and efficient but not rushed. The restaurant opens daily and caters for late lunches.
