A proper Mediterranean seafood restaurant, terrace right on the water, friendly service, inexpensive wines and FABULOUS seafood: worth a trip from Malta just to have lunch here!

We were a group of friends and had a lovely dinner at Il Kartell. The service was excellent. The food (kalamari, meat and pasta) was very good and presentation was quite nice too. Why not a 5 star? Portions are average size and the dessert (Blueberries with pastry) was below average. Unfortunately the pastry was not good at all.

We live in Malta since 2011 and had experienced hundreds of restaurants in Malta and Gozo. Our favorited food is fish. We was in Marsalforn in February and lots of restaurants were closed. My friend spotted a small sign at the end of the promenade, between 2 big restaurants (Gambero and Pierre's). We were attracted by the Maltese name and... More

Delicious food, lovely atmosphere and great service. A family run business specialising in local food. Desserts are homemade and to die for. The staff is very welcoming and eager to please. Well done!

Visited with friends on Sunday afternoon, most restaurants weren't open and this was one of the few that were so we popped in. Ordered the prawn bisque and seafood linguine - they were really amazing! Friends order the sea bass and salmon, both of which were greatly praised as well. Value for money! Ambience was nice too (:

Il-Kartell is one of our favorite resturants in Gozo. The food is consistantly delicious and the views of Marsalforn Bay spectacular. The staff is wonderful as well! Hands down, the best resturant in Marsalforn! Also, they serve local Ta Mena kunserva, which is a always a treat to every meal!

I travel to Gozo every summer and Kartell is a must place to eat. I love the view, service, and food. The seafood is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Always moist and never dry. Very good selection of wine and desserts as well. Service is always on point. Cant wait to eat there again!
