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.

Wow experience in food, service, ambience, and owner hospitality My wife and I came here for valentines dinner and were made to feel more than welcome by 28 year old impeccable proprietor - Michela. On entering we were escorted to a sofa and offered drinks...by the very romantic fireplace. Then after ordering off the specials menu we were escorted to our table. My wife had an amazing prawn ragu arancina and I had a perfect dish of duck tortellaci in a melted chocolate sauce. The blend of flavors was divine. For mains I had a beef wellington, and my wife had meager. My Wellington was so big had to take half in a take away box. for dessert my wife had a milled phone with Nutella filling. The young 28 year old proprietor owner Michela was ever so nice and the place ever so welcoming that today was a first but definitely not a last. We fell in love with everything about this restaurant. Being an ex restauranteur myself the passion from this young lad rubs off into the whole place. Well done young ladsMore

One of the best restaurant experiences I had, the staff was very polite , the food was to die for and the overall atmosphere was phenomenal. The staff were on point regarding the service they gave, being attentive and very clean. The food was delicious...and the price range is also good. At the end they gave as limoncello on the house with cute little wooden gifts for Valentine’s day. 10/10 would recommend and foe sure we will be back !!!More

A very well done both in food and service as we celebrated my parents 50th Anniversary dinner at Brookies Restaurant. Besides being during the busy days of the festive season we well very well taken care of by the staff and food was fresh, delicious...and we were all served together despite being a large group of 27 people. The owner, Michela is very helpful and tries her best to meet the requested requirements and please her customers. Thanks once again Michela for making this special night a memorable one. We will highly recommend this cosy, friendly but sophisticated restaurant for either a dinner date or celebrating a special occasion. Will surely visit again:)More

The restaurant has a great location, close to Victoria but not in the middle of all the traffic and congestion. The building itself is gorgeous, well kept and clean. The dining area is spacious and well appointed. Our host Michaela was the star of the...show, exceeding herself to make us comfortable. Our party had it all, a wheelchair user, two children, young adults, elderly, late arrivals and always honest but overly critical me. We were seated comfortably and whilst food was slightly slow to arrive at the beginning, we never felt forgotten. The food was well presented with most tasting great with just a couple being good but not exceptional. The deserts received a 100% approval from all. Having tried Sunday lunch, I will make it a point to try to visit soon for a weekend dinner, but in this instance the experience was superb.More

Very clean and well presented restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. I chose the soup of the day, which was smoked pumpkin and the chicken risotto for mains. Both dishes were excellent, the risotto especially was an enjoyable blend of spices, herbs, chicken...and rice. I was offered a brandy on the house to finish off. It was not an unduly expensive meal, just well prepared and presented..More

Firstly, a tip. This restaurant is located in a semi-rural location on a country road about 25 minutes walk from central Victoria, so it may be wise to take a taxi if you don't have private transport, particularly at night as the road is not...particularly well lit. The premises are very characterful; the restaurant appears to be an elegantly converted spacious old property and has a bar to the rear and a large dining room with views towards the floodlit citadel. A futher plus point is the staff, who were friendly, efficient and professional throughout. The menu (available on the website) has a wide selection of starters, pasta, meat and a smaller selection of fish. We started with a shared large portion of pasta (beef garganelli) and we both selcted duck breast as mains and found the food to be pleasant, but not particularly creative or exceptional in either cooking or presentation. We enjoyed the desserts and there was a wide selection of good value local wines, which is to be commended. Our final bill for 2 persons, excluding tip but including water, coffee, apperetifs, etc, was 119 Euros, which we felt represented good value. All in all, a pleasant evening...but take a taxi!More

First time visiting this restaurant, but it won’t be the last. Excellent Un-rushed service from the moment we arrived until we left. Lovely chilled atmosphere. We booked relatively early at 7pm, the restaurant was quiet and we had a choice of tables. The menu was...excellent, offering a great choice of dishes. We opted for the tuna steak that was one on the daily specials, it was cooked to perfection, beautifully fresh and tender. The other meal was sea bass, once again cooked to perfection. Both dishes came with a selection of seasonal vegetables and beautiful roasted potatoes. We shared a desert which again was delicious. The wine cellar is extensive, and the staff very knowledgeable in that department. In short, this was the best meal we have had in Gozo, and we will ensure we return.More
