During a tour of Gozo we stopped in Mġarr for lunch, looking around the harbour vicinity the Porto Vecchio looked to be the smartest and set a little way off the main roads. The outdoor dining area on the harbour side was very clean and with great views.The menu was quite varied and the service excellent. The Foie Gras risotto... More

We've been here many times, both with friends and with family, and have always enjoyed it. In summer, it's great to sit outside and enjoy the harbour view, and in winter it's very cosy and welcoming inside. The fish is always very fresh and well cooked and I always love their pork cheeks. The soup of the day is really... More

Very obvious choice when one is in Mgarr... location is very visible. The menu is a bit limited and pricey. We had mixed seafood to share for 2. But if one wants '' frito misto seafood '' this one is sauted but it was good. No sidings included. Service is fast and cordial. Good wine list.

This must be one of the best places for a water-side lunch in the Med. We ate here as a family fairly recently. The location is great - a short walk around the Mgarr harbour side from the ferry. There is fair number of tables under the canopy on the terrace - but am sure it's worth booking if possible... More

We ended up here by chance and didn't regret it. Went there yesterday and the service was very good, waiters with a smile on their face. The location is brilliant and we were treated very well. Nice good food. Highly recommended! Thanks to all the staff for allowing us a table even tough you were nearly full of reserved tables!

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.
