Our annual stay in gozo always goes without a hitch, unfortunetly when in Gozo for the 15th time in a row, we decided to try something new and look for a restaurant at the last second (we preferably wanted one in Marsaxlokk which serves pizza for the kids and has sea views) the positioning was absolutely perfect and the view of the bay was stunning.
the owner or manager was waiting outsie the restaurant like an eagle (as agreed with a previous review) playing his guitar and charming people. the place was empty even though it was a Saturday night and all other places were stuffed. the décor was hideous, old, dirty and stained. After about three quarters of an hour waiting for our 4 pizza dishes and one meat and two pasta dishes and finally they arrived, not only was the waiter unable to communicate in the English language but the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in ages.
We had also asked the waiter for a vegetarian dish and she suggested the caeser salad!!!
the pizza looked horrendous. the crust was burned and uneven whilst the taste was worst- burnt and tastless (seemed like it was re-heated) the pasta was disgusting (there was an overload of salt and pepper) the meat was drench in what was called a sauce.
We asked for at least half our money back as it was too much of a shame to see a place with a great view but has ad service. the owner told us that maltese people like their pizza hard and crunchy and as a matter of fact I am maltese (just engligsh speaking) and I am certain that maltese people do not like burnt pizzas. he refused to give us the money back 90 euros down the drain.
but as I have recently check the place has a 'for sale' sign.
another thing I thought was silly was the comment above 'Asian chef who tries to impress' TRIES?!
