Great Restaurant


If you ever visit Gozo and are looking for somewhere to have a meal go straight to ''Xerri l-Bukkett''. Last weekend we went for a meal there and the food was great - you dont have to have a meal, jut sit there and enjoy the view cos it has one of the best views on the island. Perched right ontop of the hill/cliff at the Mgarr side of Qala (on the road that goes down to Mgarr from Qala along the cliff edge - NOT the main road) it overlooks the channel towards Comino and Malta. It doesn't matter what the weather is cos its lovely whether its sunny and calm or stomy and rough.
The restaurant is very much a 'local' centre. As you enter you have the local ''bocci'' club (thats bowls in english I think). The only indoor one I know of in Gozo. Behind that is the restaurant with enormous glass windows overlooking this fantastic view and ofcourse you can also eat outside. On the left is the bar and near it an area where the old local men sit around and play cards. There is a very nice atmosphere and it seems is a hangout for old and young alike.
So when in Gozo next make sure you give them a visit. Very good service and polite and welcoming too. Don't know why we didn't try it sooner! Very easy to find -best thing to do is make your way to Qala and ask the first person you see to show you the way to ''Xerri l-Bukkett''.
