I have been driving past, and meaning to dine here for years.... Last night, friends of mine invited me to a B&B in Qala that also has a restaurant, so finally I was eating here, and it was a really nice evening. Seated at the large table in a warm, farmhouse dining room, we had good service from 2 professional... More

Ate in the courtyard at Il-Wileg this evening and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I ordered the Oriental coconut curry with prawns which was delicious. My husband ordered the pork with coriander which he also thoroughly enjoyed. This is a charming restaurant with delightful staff.

We stayed here for two weeks, whilst on holiday in Gozo. If you want 5 star accommodation don't stay here, but if you like a quaint, rustic environment then this will be for you. The rooms are thoughtfully decorated and have everything you need, hair dryer and toiletries are supplied. There is a good selection for breakfast, cereal, fresh fruit,... More

The owner Martin is truly a wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble. The atmosphere is relaxing and tranquil , just the very place to unwind. The rooms are beautiful, well appointed and...

We had high expectations for this restaurant,because the ambience on the photos are nice, but we were very disappointed and came out hungry. The servings was very poor. The plate was served almost empty and the price sky high. The meat and the duck that we ordered was very little and not tender. The vegetables were very little. Certainly we... More

We enjoyed dinner at Il-Wieg so much, we went again - the very next night! There is a wide range of dishes, including lots of very appetising seafood and local cuisine. The wine list is good. The service is excellent. The restaurant is in a delightful Maltese farmhouse, a little out of the centre of Qala - but easily walkable... More

Me and my wife stayed for two nights at the Il-Wileg guest house. Adjoining this guesthouse is il - Wileg Restaurant we celebrated our 34th anniversary, at this secluded restaurant located at the outskirts of Qala Gozo. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want genuine food and the right atmosphere. Prosit Martin and all the crew.
