We have ate here quite a lot over the last couple of years when staying in Xaghra! Especially with the stone bakes pizzas. The service is always good & will keep on coming back.

We have tried to go here before but the timing somehow never worked out, until last weekend. As a Maltese who goes to Gozo frequently, this is the only place on the island where you can sit and enjoy an authentic, old-style Gozitan meal. This...More
