We had a dinner here at this family-run restaurant on a beautiful May evening, overlooking the bay and cliffs. We shared a “starter” mushroom linguine (forget the menu name), and it was an incredible, delicious large portion. Perfectly combing chilli pepper, garlic, olive oil, mushrooms...and truffle. Wow! My wife had the eggplant main, and claims it was the best eggplant she’s ever had. I had hake (fish) in a tomato and caper sauce and it was a well-sized and delicious main as well. Complimentary liqueur after dinner topped off an incredible meal. Great friendly and warm service.More

My husband and I were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel La Reggia in Marsaxlokk who told us the chef was exceptional. What a fabulous meal we had. Everything was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy excellent food and...wonderful service. The restaurant is on the top floor of a building and quite hidden and you take an elevator to reach it. There is a large terrace with a beautiful views of the sea.More

Treated to lunch by an old friend at his favourite haunt - completely justified choice. Super location overlooking the opposing cliffs from second floor; friendly discreet service, fabulous fresh food.

Went with guests and had booked more than two weeks earlier. Found it closed on Saturday night. Called them and they said they were sick and could not open..granted but we left our phone number for a reason. Very, very disappointed.More

Our third time at the ic-cima and as esquite as always. You cannot fault your choice if you want delicious food this is the place to go. So many choices at such reasonable prices with a michelin star type of food. Definitely, the only option...for that special occasion with a reasonable price. Last but not least the management is also top notch so helpful and so attentive to detail. They go out of their way to accommodate you. Thumbs up Ic-cima you are definitely the best.More

We’ve been to this restaurant several times with no complaints but the last trip was a real let down. Excellent food but the service was slow and very inattentive. We decided not to have dessert or coffee as we couldn’t contemplate being there any longer....Previous courses took so long we thought another wait was just not worth it.More

My partner and I visited Ic Cima for dinner and it was one of the best meals I've ever had (I had the roasted eggplant). Bring your appetite as the portions are very decent! The family-run restaurant overlooks the sea so you get breathtaking views...of the sunset. I definitely want to visit Gozo again and when I do, I will definitely return to Ic Cima!More

An excellent spot with an amazing view and equally delicious food. The signature Rizzi sauce is to die for and the lamb French rack was perfectly executed on a couple of different occasions. One of the pricier restaurants, but definitely delivers every single time.
