On the sister island of Malta, Gozo, one can find many many restaurants that offer a selection of diverse cuisine. Whether you live in Malta or are a tourist there are endless restaurant options in Gozo where you can kick back, relax and enjoy yummy food solo or together with friends and family. Some of my favorite restaurants that are located around Gozo are REXY, The Boathouse, Yume Fusion, Il-Kartell, and Pebbles.
I have been to REXY Restaurant many times at Ghajnsielem and they always offer great food and generous portions. I love their tasty BBQ spare ribs with a side of chips and veggies. The staff are always very lovely, helpful, and patient and always ensure that you have a great experience. They do not take reservations on weekends, long weekends and public holidays so make sure to plan and arrive a bit early, especially during peak hours.
The Boathouse Restaurant
I love eating at The Boathouse since lunch or dinner is always accompanied by a lovely view of Xlendi Bay and when taking photos of the food the sea provides a beautiful backdrop. They have a vast menu however my favorite is the local fresh fish along with a side of roasted potatoes and vegetables which is both delicious and healthy. Apart from the food being delicious, they also all have great customer service and serve food with a smile. This shows from the 4.6 stars from over a thousand Google reviews! They are open every day from noon to three o’clock in the afternoon. Then, they open again from six o’clock to ten o’clock in the evening.
Il Kartell is found in Marsalforn and it is one of the best spots to go to since here one can enjoy the sea view while indulging in yummy food. The Il-Kartell restaurant is a cozy restaurant located at the end of Marine Street where one can enjoy their food with friends or family. From their vast menu, my favorite is their fresh and amazing pasta and the flavourful seafood that is fresh and caught locally. The staff are lovely and hospitable and they have 4.6 stars on Google reviews. Il-Kartell is open every day except for Thursday. The rest of the week they are open from noon until three o’clock. Later on, it reopens again from six to ten o’clock in the evening.
Yume Fusion is found in the heart of Victoria and it offers a range of Asian cuisine options that include sushi, chicken, and fish. The food is always delicious; if I could eat from Yume Fusion every day, I definitely would. My favorite sushi rolls are the Yume roll and the Tempura roll. They are mouth-watering and in fact, I order these two rolls every single time that I eat there. They also have a good selection of Chinese and Japanese food options as well. My fav is the lemon chicken along with a side dish of egg-fried rice.
Pebbles is another really good restaurant that is located right next to Marsalforn Bay on the North side of Gozo. Being an outdoor restaurant and right next to the beach, it is a very Instagram-friendly restaurant where you can take picturesque photos that can contribute to your Instagram profile. I have been to Pebbles many times and the service is always prompt. In addition, the staff is always helpful and friendly and the owners are lovely. My top favorite food from Pebbles is the delightful Meat Lovers Pizza and the palatable Seaside pasta.
