“The best food in Palau!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We bumped into this small restaurant by accident and were pleasantly surprised. It is very unpretentious - the design is simple - but the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Would recommend the tuna carpaccio! In the summer the nice little terrace by the church must be great too.

“Was one if the better ones”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 via mobile

I must say, this is one of the meals we enjoyed the most. Not gourmet and yet just good decent, clean food.
The sitting is outdoor on a side street next to the churche's back door, so you feel quite cosy. The restaurant is small and intimate, kind of Italian feel just like in some European Italian restaurant.
The service is very personal and friendly yet I must admit is really slow. Looks like very little staff(owner and daughter), but it made our evening. You do feel that it's been run by women because it has that special homely touch.
The food was very tasty, Sardinian and simple. Good ingredients and made with full freshness and cleanliness. Everything was simple yet tasty and light.
120 euro for six was extremely reasonable.

“Pizza and Pasta”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Il Ghiottone is a very friendly restaurant with very good value food, opposite the main church in Palau. The staff were very relaxed and friendly and the the restaurant appeared to be very popular with the locals too. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Palau.

“Recommended”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Nice location, on a quiet square next to a church. Service was friendly, the bread was tasty and fresh, the antipasti and pasta's were good.
If we would have stayed longer than a day in Palau, we would certainly have gone back. Recommended !
