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!

Do yourself a favor and go to Kartell on your visit to gozo! You won't be sorry. Kartell has been a favorite of mine since I started visiting gozo, but since they changed managements I went with a very critiqued eye for service and mouth for the new food. I am a foodie and love a good meal! I was... More

Plenty of choice on the menu but very busy so book ahead. They do a small steak, which is just right for small appetites. Our young godson really enjoyed his - nice change from pasta or kids menu. Some local specialities but mainly mediterranean cuisine.

Il-Kartell is probably one of the more upmarket restaurants on the harbourside in Marsalforn. It seems to be a family-run business, and has a pleasant, upmarket feel to the restaurant. They did everything well here, from the warm bread served at the beginning of the meal, through the starters and main courses. We opted for fish and white wine, both... More

Not much to say really. Food was lovely, service was good. Location is good. I'm not sure I'd put it so high in the top 10 restaurants, but it was good and I'd eat there again.
