This restaurant is always full, reservation is recommended. Food in large quantity and excellent taste. One of the best in Gozo. Price medium expensive.

Most probably the best Restaurant in the Area. Not easy to find but worth the effort! Frech lobster and sea urchin pasta was unbelievable

A group of 10 of us went for dinner and were offered a multiple course fish feast. We had oysters, prawns, smoked fish, calamari fritti, pasta with rizzi and sugo nero......it just kept coming and every bite was delicious. The ambience and service was great too. Will most definitely go again.

Recommended by our guide so straight away a little sceptical. Best bit of advice we had in ages as this gem is well worth trying out. Great food, great value and great service whilst looking out over the bay. What more could you ask for?

What you see in the main picture is what you get. Very impressive view. When I was there there were gales and waves were breaking under us (the day when the famous Azure Window collapsed). We sampled almost all seafood; very fresh and well prepared. Waiters were not especially warm and friendly; just doing their job. Overall, a satisfying experience.

Arzella is located on an elevated part of Marsalforn and the panoramic views one can enjoy from this restaurant are truly spectacular. When you combine this with fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection then you have a recipe for success. The food is simply delicious.

We loved Arzella. It was personally recommended by our hotel manager. The fresh fish and seafood were excellent, and the service was very friendly and efficient. One of us was vegetarian, and without hesitation Chris recommended vegetarian food not on the menu, delicious melanzane parmigiana and gnocchi with herbs. Two of us shared the fish of the day, grilled sea... More

Had lunch here today and had a lovely meal. We had the grilled mixed fish of the day and fritto misto. Both were very good. The terrace has amazing views over the bay and when the wind breaks are open in the summer I would imagine that it would be a brilliant place for a meal

Fish freah from the sea to the table, lovingly coated with local herbs, gilled and served with excellent fresh vegetables. A delight for the eyes and the tastebuds. Recommended wholeheartedly.
