Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you’re looking for a good place to eat in Gozo, look no further. Amazing food, very well curated. The atmosphere was also nice, quiet and the service very friendly. Nothing negative to point out

We were staying at the Grand Hotel and hiking, discovered Ta Philip in our guide -- so so glad we did! From the minute we walked in and were so warmly greeted, to the excellent viognier wine we chose, to the explanation of the menu...-- and then the delicious food! Obviously, these folks love food and their home in Gozo -- and want to share it with others. Just a delightful experience -- going back tomorrow!More

My wife and I have dined here twice, and will be back. Awesome food, service, and ambiance. Best mushroom risotto ever! The kid goat was also amazing, as was the duck. This is one of our best ever dining experiences in Europe. Cannot think of...a thing that could be improved. As an owner of 2 restaurants over 15 years, I have nothing but admiration for the job Ta Philip does. Thank you!More

We had an absolutely incredible meal here. Not fine dining but really, really good food taken to a whole new level. My husband had calamari to start with which he said was delicious and the I had the ribs for a main course and my...husband had the lasagne. Both were enormous portions cooked isi g a wood fired stove and absolutely delicious. I would go as far as to say the ribs were the best I’ve ever had. We had a delicious bottle of local wine and the bill was (by englands standards) very reasonable. Would highly recommend.More

Our favourite meal out in Gozo! The food was fabulous and reasonably priced. Service was great. And the restaurant was clean, cool and nice decor. We particularly loved the wood-fired pig. And the gelato was delicious too! We will be back.

Amazing food, loads of specials besides the daily menu, great service, lovely place and very fair prices. One thing I particularly love as well is that they offer an option of veg and baked potatoes besides the usual French fries, and the potatoes are outstanding....The place also has a lovely yard and wine cellar.More
