Country Terrace

"He's great. The service is great. The food is awesome". "Wouldn't change a thing!"

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.
Owner Joseph is a big character and fantastic host taking care of front of house so that guests are instantly welcomed and attended to.  His eye for detail ensures high standards and food and service are consistent. The menu changes seasonally and is predominantly Mediterranean in style with a wide range of fresh pasta dishes including gluten free and many vegetarian options in addition to fresh fish and meat selections, classically prepared. Popular choices include the tuna tartare drizzled with Gozitan olive oil  and fine cuts of New Zealand beef served with a choice of sauces and mustards.  Fresh fish caught daily  and traditional rabbit and pan roasted quail are also perfect options. Their classic homemade tiramisu is an excellent choice for dessert. A comprehensive wine and cocktail list complements the menu. Banqueting options are available and it’s a very popular option for private events and weddings.

  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.
