“Service with a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

The only worry with going back to re-try a restaurant....'Will it be as good as last time'.... Well, no such worries here. Martin, the owner has 'much more' than just excellent food and drink to offer.
He took a small group of us on a herb and flower tasting walk....'amazing'....and if you get caught by a shower....there's even a convenient cave to shelter in....'magic'....

“Best meal I had (Gozo and Malta too)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

The best meal I had in either Gozo or Malta. Not cheap, but not as expensive as you might expect. When you order, be aware that helpings can be pretty big.

To find it, ask in Qala main square. It's an ancient farmhouse off an alleyway up behind the church.
