Restaurant Name: Country Terrace
Restaurant Description: 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.

Best restaurant on the island! We visited Country Terrace twice in our 10 day vacation on Gozo and it was both times amazing. The location and the view are great, the service is very friendly and attentive, we felt welcome. The food was really great, especially the Lampuki (fish), the Beef Wellington and the grilled calamari. We will definitely come back next year.
Wonderful dinner experience and even better view! The owner, Joseph is personable and quick to offer fantastic recommendations. Our food was wonderful, and so full of flavour. Definitely worth the trip!
A fantastic restaurant with delicious food. The service is excellent from all staff however Joseph is particularly outstanding. I definitely recommend this place for the views, food and service!
Lovely place for a la carte dining with a picturesque view of the Mgarr Harbour. Friendly host and staff make sure you are well looked after and enjoy yourself. The food is excellent.
Beautiful location Lovely set up Cordial and helpful staff Vast variety of food Good appetizing portions Every dish was prepared with great care and with an eye for detail Will gladly recommend such a restaurant.
