Country Terrace

Regular diners praise the "perfect host and "keep going back" for the "exceptional service" and "outstanding food"

The Country Terrace has an enviable position, perched on a cliff top in Mġarr, Gozo. Originally a farmhouse, the traditional building has been extended with a huge terrace that provides panoramic views over the yachting marina, and over the Malta/Comino channel. With ferries hypnotically passing by, and being secluded from view by surrounding trees, it’s the perfect spot to while away the time.  At night, subtle lighting, twinkly fairy lights, soft ambient music, and the fact that tables for two are positioned on the terrace edge away from tables for larger groups, makes this perhaps the most romantic of al fresco dining spots on the Maltese islands.

Joseph, the owner, is a big character and great host, taking care of front of house so that guests feel welcome and attended to, whilst his eye for detail ensures high standards in both food and service. The menu here is primarily Mediterranean, with a large range of pasta dishes including gluten free, as well as many vegetarian choices, and fish and meat options in classic combinations. Popular choices include tuna tartare and New Zealand beef fillets, as well as a range of fresh locally-caught fish and traditional rabbit and quail dishes. Chocolate fondant is a great choice for dessert, while a comprehensive wine and cocktail list complements the menu.

  1. In my opinion, the best restaurant in Gozo… best view in Gozo… over looking Comino island and port of Mgarr. Food is great and worth the money as these are not expensive at all.. the staff is very helpful and sweet… they all make you feel at home. Country terrace is surely not to be missed when visiting this island.
