A winner of our awards for the past three years, Country Terrace is located in a most enviable spot, perched right on the cliff tops in Mġarr, Gozo. The 16th century cottage and farm has been extensively renovated inside with a large terrace providing panoramic views over the yacht marina and extending across Comino to Malta in the distance. Nestled amongst mature trees, it’s the perfect spot to while away an afternoon or summertime evening. At night, with its twinkly fairy lights and soft, ambient music this is possibly one of the most romantic al fresco dining venues around.
