I visited Ta' Rikardu many many years ago...so I had nostalgic memories of the place and the food there. On my return visit after so many years I have nixed feelings about the whole experience. The fully restored magnificent Cittadella is an amazing backdrop. The pace itself can also provides a great atmosphere. The food however was not really at... More

Lovely salad platter served on the rooftop terrace reached by a spiral stone staircase. Great views across the rooftops of Victoria. Local craft beers. Difficult to improve upon.

We have been visiting Rikardu's for over 30 years now and we have never been disappointed. Visiting with my wife and sons from London, we received a warm welcome as always making us feel at home. We were quick to order our traditional delicious platter, followed up with their perfectly cooked homemade ravioli and spaghetti bolognese. Almost forgot to mention... More

Nice castle like interior is pretty much all that is exceptioonal about this place. The food is very mediocre, they dont have home made stuff as the advertice, but rather a cantina like quality of food. Service is somewhat chaotic. Menu has a few items, none of them typical Maltese. The food is cheap though, so you will get your... More

It's been years since I've been here but with fond memories made it back yesterday while visiting the magnificently restored Cittadella in Gozo. Rikardu now with a grown up family, hosts you as if a longtime friend. From the upper terrace of this very old Stone 'full of character must stop on your itinerary' restaurant, watch exquisite sunsets and views... More

I've red about this place in a Maltaguide and just had to try 😃 I'm glad I did👍🏼 We had a platter of cheese, tomatoes, onions and olives, sun-dried tomatoes. Add some bread and a glass of red wine and you're home 👌🏼🍷🍞🧀 The place itself had a big value for my ranking.

I chose to have lunch on the roof top but I was not warned that it was windy. Things kept flying about but the view was magnificent. I was told that I could eat inside and after a time I took up the effort. I had some of their Ravioli as a main course. I was told that there would... More

Small menu focusing on local food, in good parts home grown/made ingredients. You must try the rabbit! Unfortunately we were too late for trying the goat, maybe another time...
