We had the seafood soup as appetizer that was amazing and I give that 5*. For the main course I had the seafood ravioli with prawns. While the prawns where incredible tasty and very fresh, the ravioli where just not that exciting. Without the sauce they tasted not like much, very bland and very like just nothing.

The standard of the cuisine is good and the restaurant is close to the water front, A three course meal costs between €25 and €35 without wine per person. I have been to... More

One from many restaurants located along the harbour waterfront. The tables are set up mainly inside the restaurant, some of them are outside, close to the water. The menu concentrates on the sea food, but there are also some meet and veggies. The portions are large and they taste good. The staff, probably family members, are friendly and attentive. The...

The season has not yet started, and customers are still few at the sea-side restaurants, so we did not have high expectations as to the quality of the food. We have picked this one at random, and we did not regret it. We have been offered some bruschetta on tasty, freshly baked bread, still warm from the oven. We have... More

Very good restaurant. Sitting area rather casual, but food is superb. Had mozzarella di buffala as antipasto, then oven baked pasta with tartufo and duck breast. Everything was really well done, tasty, well served and of high quality. Pasta dishes for around 10-12 E, mains 15-16 E and up. By the sea, in front of Calypso hotel. Well worth a... More

Visiting areas of Gozo out of season can be a test of restaurants as those that can maintain customers during this period can speak volumes, and Pulena is no exception. We chose this restaurant based on the reviews we had read and the variety that the menu offered and were not disappointed. We arrived at around 7:30 and bar one... More
