We were taken to The Boat House by our driver on a tour of Gozo. Very nice location right on the water. The service and food was good. Very popular tour operator destination. Gets crowded a lunch time and reservations are advised.

Food was wonderful and the service was an excellent one. We also asked for something specific not on the menu and was made for us and we appreciated that a lot.

Description
Situated right on the water's edge and next to the statue of St. Andrew in the fishermen's area of the bay, The Boat House Restaurant is ably run by Joseph Attard and his wife Rose. It has established itself as a must visit restaurant when visiting Gozo by Maltese and foreigners alike. The location enjoys the warm sunshine on winter afternoons and romantic sunsets. The choice of starters and main courses is endless. On top of that, there are the 'Specialities of the Day'. The fish display is a clear statement about the freshness of the daily catch. All items on the menu are prepared with ingredients of the highest quality. The selection of in-house desserts is tempting. The Wine List includes a large variety of local and foreign wines to please all wine lovers. Service is professional, fast and efficient but not rushed. The restaurant opens daily and caters for late lunches.
