Food is very good whether you choose the fish, meat, or pasta dishes. Local dishes are excellent. Service good.

The Smugglers cave I would say is one of the better restaurants in this part of the island. They will cater for big groups. The pizza was great, if you like Mediterranean food and also want a taste of home this is the place. Nothing is over priced like some restaurants on the island. They have a good drinks menu... More

The restaurant offers a very wide variety of dishes all very abundant in portion and all with a very good value for money. The proprietor always offers his personal attention to the clients and the service is always... More

Prices are low or very low, tables comfortable big enough, staff friendly, service fast. Food was much better than we expected for that price. Nothing I can complain. We will definitely come again.

We often come here for lunch and a few drinks. The food is fairly basic but well made and the staff are alway friendly. It's a great place to have a few drinks and watch the world go by with a sea view. The only down side is that you get quite a bit of vehicle noise and pollution from... More

This is a really nice restaurant ticked away just around the corner from the Calypso hotel in Marsalforn. Food is reasonably priced and is really tasty so if your feeling peckish while in town you could do worse than eating at the Smuggler's. They also offer "specials" which are very good and real value for money.

This was our second visit to Gozo in the last 12-13 months for scuba diving holidays, and we were delighted to return to Smugglers Cave several times throughout our most recent stay. It was one of our favourite restaurants on our 2015 trip so, of course, we spent even more time there this year. Sometimes we would stop by for... More
