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.

This a great casual restaurant with a small amount of tables inside and lots outside. The owner Audrey is the most pleasant, efficient and hard working owner of a busy restaurant and her staff are all wonderful. Her burger is the best on the island...and she serves an array of fresh meat dishes, pasta and delicious steaks. Her helping are very generous! I recommend this restaurant to my family and friends. Try it you won’t be disappointed!More

My Husband & I visited the Lovely Audrey’s several times sampling pasta dishes/lamb chops/homemade fishcakes/fresh tuna & the antipasto board; all were scrumptious & we would highly recommend Rubbles Bar is in an ideal position to view the weekly entertainment with a relaxed local atmosphere

Arrived in the square at about 8pm to find a couple of spare tables at Rubble’s, seated immediately and within few minutes they were talking our drinks orders on a very warm evening which was very welcome. Engaged with some light hearted conversation with the...waitress who’s name I forget about our previous visit in 2016 to which she said she remembered us ( I doubt but a nice touch especially for the kids). Food off the main menu and specials board were all amazing, mocktails for the kids were fab and the so were adult versions. Yummy puddings and evens a complimentary limonchello each before settling the bill. Would definitely recommend.More

On a weekend visit to Gozo went to Rubbles for dinner on the Saturday with 2 others and it was so good we returned the next night. Lovely friendly bar with a great welcome from owner Audrey and top class service all night. The meal...was superb. I had the turf and surf the first night and the same the next night it was so good. Beautiful tender steak with juicy king prawns on top dusted with a seasoning mix with just the right amount of chilli. One of my dinner companions had king prawns both nights and the other had pasta with clams. Both of them were delighted with their meals. Chef Jack clearly takes great in his work.More

We try not to return to restaurants when we are away, but we ended up eating her three times! The staff were absolutely fantastic, so attentive and friendly. We tried a variety of options including the specials. All of the food was really tasty served...quickly and excellent value. The restaurant quickly became busy every evening it was open, with both locals and tourists. Excellent restaurant!More

Located in the most picturesque village square in Gozo, this gem of a restaurant and bar is a must at least once if you are visiting Gozo. The proprietor, Audrey, is a welcoming and gracious host to all her clients and will do whatever it...takes to ensure they enjoy their meal or drinks. They have a nice selection of wines and the house wines are great and the portions generous. Jack is the chef and prepares a tasty selection of specials every evening ( except Thursday when they are closed) . Burgers are also always on the menu and they are great, especially the Rubbles burger with bacon and a fried egg on top! Best burger in Gozo without a doubt. We found the service to be excellent, and Zak was a very attentive waiter who ensured we had a memorable evening every time we visited. In fact we are going back there for dinner again this evening with a larger group of friends. I know we will not be disappointed and anticipate a delicious meal and a fun filled evening..More

Arrived at 8pm, first drinks order came an hour later and by 11.30pm the staff had still not taken our food order. Two young people at our table felt quite sick after 2 hours of waiting (despite a local friend…known to them… who was with...us asking to order) that they ordered a Wolt McDonalds. The Serbian waiter was incredibly rude. Definitely won’t be returning.More

After a great day in Gozo and a swim in the sea, we came to Rubbles Bar in the beautiful square in Xaghra. This was our second visit as we came here nearly five years ago. It was lovely then and didn’t disappoint this time....The setting is wonderful and Audrey is so friendly. We had a wonderful meal with gorgeous cocktails and wine. In truth we didn’t want to leave. Only here for a short stay this time but we will be back as soon as we can. We can’t recommend it highly enough.More

I wasn’t even aware Rubble was open for Sunday lunch when I passed by so I popped in for a delicious lunch. Tempura prawns were tasty and juicy in a feather light tempura batter. I followed that with a spicy smokey super tasty pasta special...with more juicy prawns! To wrap it all up I had lovely salted caramel ice cream. 10/10. I can’t recommend this place highly enough. Well appointed in the busy Xaghra square. Reasonable cost and superb food and excellent service. A tasty treat for families, young, old, locals and tourists all mingle well here. Try not to miss it if you’re visiting Gozo.More
