A foodie haven in a clever conversion with summer terrace overlooking Gozo’s capital.

I nearly failed to find this restaurant the first time I went there. The entrance is through an unpromising doorway just off the main square. Inside is an old gentleman’s club that has been imaginatively converted into a wine bar and two-part restaurant run by a real foodie.

Food and drink

The wood-covered menu is modern and imaginative international/fusion food. The chef-manager is a real foodie and the menu changes regularly. As an example though you might find something like fresh tuna in a sesame seed crust or venison in red wine and chocolate sauce. As well as being commended for its food in Malta’s Definitive Guide to Good Restaurants, Maji won the top award for its Maltese wine list.

Ambience

The old members’ room is now a comfortable bar, the old library a cozy white-clothed winter restaurant with warm beige drapes, and the small roof terrace is the place to eat in summer with delightful night-time views over the domes, towers and rooftops of Victoria. The atmosphere is very relaxed and families are welcome (there is even a small children’s menu).

Service

The service is very personal if not necessarily fast. The chef-manager loves to discuss the food - but woe betide anyone who (like my son) asks for a steak well done!

Location

It's between Victoria’s main square – Independence Square – and neighbouring Savina Square, in the heart of the capital just below the citadel.

Price advice

Starters cost on average 9 euros, and mains 15-20 euros. Kids' dishes are mostly 6.50 euros.
