It’s Raining, It’s Pouring! And If It Does, These Restaurants In Gozo Will Be Scoring!
What better way to beat the weather than heading to one of our handpicked restaurants to tuck into some delicious local food. Bookmark this page for updates in the forthcoming season.
Gozo is an all-year-round destination and enjoys the warmest holiday weather round the clock, in Europe. Outdoor swimming is possible well into the low season – but when the sun is not shining (it does on average for 3,000+ hours a year!) the best thing to do is to seek out one of the restaurants in Gozo and graze the afternoon away.
We all head for the coast when the suns out. We want fresh air, a warm breeze, and to dine with the ocean lapping the shore. So what about the restaurants in Gozo that don’t offer that per se? It’s time to put the spotlight on them.
We have compiled a list of our favourite restaurants to seek shelter in and we know, without doubt, you will feel the same. This ain’t no paid promotion folks – these places fit the bill AND, the food is that good – you will definitely want to return, even when it’s sunny!
9 Restaurants To Head To When The Weather’s Bad In Gozo
1. One80 restaurant, Mgarr
You can always count on one80 to offer up a perfect plate of warming goodness.
Try this. Maple and Harissa Chicken Wings. They are FANTABULOUS!
2. ristorante Arzella, Marsalforn
Albeit by the beach, this gem of a restaurant is warm and cosy in the low season and offers beautiful food that will warm your soul.
Go for the fillet of Beef with their infamous peppercorn sauce. It’s a firm favourite of ours.
3. Ta Tona, Mgarr
We call Ta Tona the “locals local” and when you dine here, you will see why. Jacob and the team can’t do enough for you and truly make you feel at home.
Opt for the fish platter to share with your table. We think this is knockout!
4. Fliegu Restaurant, Nadur
Your hosts at Fliegu will make you feel right at home in their restaurant with its unique vista overlooking the ‘Fliegu’ across Comino and Malta.
Opt for the pizzas! They bake their own dough and cook in their own wood-fired oven. The chef is Sicilian so expect the best!
5. Country Terrace Restaurant
The exquisite surroundings, panoramic views, and high-end cuisine leave this restaurant high on the agenda when on Gozo. Established for decades and maintaining standards year by year, this award-winning eatery never fails.
6. The View Bar & Kitchen, Zebbug
The View stands up to its name with a poignant spectacle over Zebbug and the setting sun – and even if it’s raining, the layout allows the view all year round. Opt for the Kickin’ Chicken with Chicken, mango chutney, grapes, walnuts and tomato salad.
7. LAtini restaurant, Xaghra
Chef Bryan and his wife Victoria who works the Front of House are a great couple and team with exactly the right attitude and aptitude when it comes to running a restaurant. The food is a vibrant delight, and the little touches are never unnoticed. Opt for the Seafood Linguine while you soak up the piazza’s atmosphere.
8. vini e capricci, by abrahams, xewkija
Vini e Capricci by Abrahams is by far one of the leading restaurants on the island. Their offerings range from the A La Carte Restaurant to Gourmet Deli and Coffee Shop. Book a table to eat ahead of time as they get booked up early. We know you will not be disappointed.
9. Front bar
Front Bar offers an awesome selection of dining options from morning to night. Start your day with a superb breakfast, or make it a bit later for one of their famous brunches (one of the best on the island in our opinion) or head down in the evening for a meal and some entertainment.
Trishna is set in lush surroundings on the main road into Victoria, Republic Street. This wonderful Indian restaurant serves authentic cuisine and a thrilling menu full of your favourite Indian dishes plus more to educate, and delight. We love this place and so will you.
