Fine location on the waterfront. Very knowledgeable about gluten free diets. Complimentary bruschetta plus warm bread (for Glyn). Varied menu. Really tasty food followed by complimentary liqueur with the very reasonable bill. Everyone really friendly and helpful. Wonderful eating experience so went back again tonight.

We had lunch at Ta' Karolina last month. We were a group of six and we had just a main course with beer and wine. The staff courteously presented us with some great tasting bruschetta which we highly enjoyed with our beer! We then moved on to two good bottles of white wine to accompany our great fish, meat and... More

We stayed at Xlendi bay for a week and discovered a perfect restaurant after 1 day! So we booked, because otherwise you don't have a table, for 5 days in a row 😃 Waiters are very kind, the food is just perfect!!! Bravo to Joseph, his brother the cook and all the members of the fabulous team! Love, Esther

We have been Xlendi visitors for 35 years and this was our first visit to Karolina after reading good reviews. Not bad pasta starters but the fish I asked for on the menu was not available so I asked them to choose me a white fish an grill it then serve skin off and boned, they forgot and by the... More

Our visit with friends brought us to Ta Karolina! It was our last night in Gozo and everything was perfect! The food was flavorful and delicious. The service was quick and not intrusive.

It's been a little while since visiting Ta' Karolina but the standards haven't dropped. Portion sizes are still too big but otherwise it's very good indeed. Make sure you book - they squeezed us (2) in at 7pm, it was packed by 8.30. Popular with both locals & holiday folk, always a good sign

Whilst on the island of Gozo you can't miss this fantastic restaurant... A great variety of food to choose from Including pizza which was ideal for my daughter. The fish is fab! Definitely should be on your bucket list!

We went here twice whilst on holiday and found everything to be just perfect. The setting is excellent, the staff are friendly and efficient and the food is amazing. Drinks orders were taken and served promptly along with complementary bruschetta topped with chopped tomato and basil. Starters looked like they were out of a magazine and tasted just as good...

Been to Ta' Karolina many times ... also frequented by my family and friends too. The service is excellent and one is to book well in advance as they tend to be busy especially on weekends. Food is great and all is prepared with so much attention. Definately one of our favourites in Xlendi Bay :)

Italiano: Non condivido i pareri di altre recensioni. Qualità cibo mediocre, antipasto dopo poco dall'ordine, bottiglia di vino dopo un'ora e poi più nulla per un'altra ora. Ci hanno volutamente ignorati, non posso che considerarli dei maleducati. Avevamo anche prenotato per tempo, mai più in questo posto.
