About Back of the Moon

The elegant dining establishment cools the palate with laid back jazz and a feast for the senses enrobed in lavish comforts for an exquisite dining experience second to none.

Back of the Moon stands proud boasting a historic location once known as the famous Old Shebeen in Old Sophia Town in the mid 1950’s. Now run and operated by two renowned restaurateurs, diners dine and dance the night away in impeccable style.

Seduce the mood dining in the main room with choice of five interesting levels or embrace total intimacy in the private dining room. Evoking a fusion of flavours, the menu entices with an a la carte menu and set menu partnered with a comprehensive wine list.

For starters, the smoked salmon thinly sliced on a bed of lettuce, accompanied with tomato, slices of onion and capers wet the appetite before melt-in-the-mouth pleasure such as the grilled chicken breast, succulently grilled on the open flame in olive oil, paprika and herbs envelop the senses.

Fish lovers can indulge in delicately moist Norwegian salmon, served with rice and vegetables, followed by the grand finale, fig ice cream fused together vanilla ice-cream, figs and ginger, served with baklava.

Enjoy great entertainment, impeccable service, and exquisite dining at Back of the Moon for an unforgettable night at Gold Reef City.
