A definite must see, this restaurant delivers more than it promises. Incomparable views, exquisite food, unparalleled wine list. Excellent service and a personal feel all around, including by the patrons continuous presence and attention to detail.

Great spot right in Mgarr harbour. We went on a quiet Monday night. Servers were pleasant and attentive. The menu was small but extremely well executed. Our table had the tuna steak and rib eye as our mains. Both delicious! We had every dessert on the menu. The 4 pistachios belongs in a five star restaurant ! Highly recommend.

While the food is in line with the quality of the other restaurants around, the price for just a seafood spaghetti is really, really expensive (40% more than in Taormina!!!). This is the reason I will never go there again, they lost a regular client.

PV was highly recommended by a friend who retired to Gozo.The menu offers an excellent choice and the accompanying wine list is equally good.Nice to be able to sit, eat, drink and watch the vessels entering and leaving the harbour. Time goes by so slowly.

Chose this restaurant on our first night in Gozo. Perfect! as we realized it is very popular with locals. Lightly battered calamari as starter which my husband and I shared. I chose whole sea bream (cooked/ wrapped in aluminum foil). The owner offered to fillet it for me, but I asked if I could do it if he will allow... More

I parked at cirkewwa malta and went to Gozo by the ferry. We went to Porto Vecchio by walk from the ship. The place is located by the sea and it gives an amazing aura to this eatery. Staff were pleasant... food equally ok. Presentation of pork cheeks can improve but it tasted ok. Overall 5 star. Would definitely go... More

We had lunch in this restaurant and enjoyed it immensely. Staff were friendly and helpful and the spagetti with prawns, we had as one of the specials was delicious. It is convenient for the ferry back to Malta too.

Came here during September and had a really nice meal. Nice dining area overlooking the bay/marina. Service was excellent, waiters and waitresses very polite, food was very prompt and tastes good too. Highly recommended.
