Excellent service and food. We were greeted by the manager i believe and shown our table. He explained a bit the specials and the menu. We had a starter from the special. It was a beef lasagna, and it tasted amazing. Then we took tagliata...and ribeye for main course. Both were cooked as requested and the meat was nice and tender. Very extensive wine as well. Perfect for any occasion. One of my new favourites in GozoMore

We booked a table for 3 for dinner. As our table was near the window door there was a problem and so we tried to stop a waiter to help us...but they were all to busy so we managed ourselves. Thats when the owner himself...came and started yelling at us without even try to understand why we did .... If it was for me we should have stood up and left!! But my friends were hungry so we stayed. We had to wait nearly 1 hour before the starters arrived! The waiter was unfriendly and when told that he had brouhgt us the wrong water (fizzi instead of still water) he took it away and never came back with the correct one. The invoice for the dinner was far to expensive for the quality of the food and for the really poor and arrogant service. NEVER AGAIN!!!More

Popped in here for lunch on a Sunday when I was in the area. Good range of food, and some decent specials too. Had a very fresh caprese salad to start followed by pasta, which at the recommendation of the owner (the eponymous Philip) I...ordered starter size, as he rightly pointed out that unless I was very hungry, I would struggle to finish. Dessert was apple pie with ice cream, the whole thing washed down with a half bottle of excellent local wine, which rather wonderfully had an image of a painting by a local artist on its label, the original of which was hanging behind me! The owner is very friendly and also lent me a book to read on said artist (Pawl Carbonaro). The price for this three course meal with wine and water came to less than €50, which is very reasonable. Would definitely come again.More

This restaurant is one of a kind. The menu offers a lot of variety including fish as well as traditional food cooked in wood burning oven (traditional cooking). The food was top class. The host was really jolly and made the experience even more enjoyable....The staff was really nice as well. Highly recommended!More

We sat in the main room which was spacious, clean and well lit. The host was welcoming and attentive. The well cooked food was very tasty and attractively presented. Portions were huge, My tuna must have weighed over a kilo!

I adored this place as soon as I walked in. It isn't decorated like your typical restaurant, either focusing on fishing or the use of local limestone so I appreciated the change. But more importantly, the quality of the food and the attention to flavours...and details was outstanding. The owner Philip has over 30 years of experience and that's obvious by his passion and the plates served. My table looked in to the kitchen and I saw his oversight on every plate before it went to a table. As an example: the chili oil that comes with the garganelli: it's not so much about how much you want to put on but his advice to not overwhelm your tastebuds and lose the flavours. (Yep, salivating again!)More
