A great place for a quiet lunch

Of course, we were here in the off season, so it might be very busy during tourist time. But don't miss if it you are near.

We were told to go to Ta Karolina from a local in Gozo. At first we didn't see it. It is at the very end of Marina Street while looking at the bay it is on the far right. You will see The Boat House and the Stone Crab, you actually have to walk through those restaurants to get to... More

Had dinner here based on personal recommendation from our accomodation owners. The meal was excellent in all respects. We had an oven baked brie starter followed by paprika chicken and swordfish dishes all well prepared and plentiful. Service unobtrusive and very efficient. Nice location by the harbour edge. A little difficult to find, located on the extreme right hand edge... More

By far my favourite place during our stay in Malta/Gozo. We (2pps) had The seafood platter for 2 with wine and their homemade "snickers cake" to share and it was enough food - and superb!! So fresh and tasty food, location is also beautiful. I recommend to arrive to the city before sunset to catch the beautiful views from the... More

Set on the far right end of Xlendi Bay, it is a bit hidden, unless you know where you're heading. However once there, the ambience is very warm and welcome, decorated with old photos of Gozo. This was my first time there. A friend of mine booked a table for 10. The staff was very polite and accomodating. I haven't... More

My husband had mussels to start on our 3 visits. He counted them 1 day there were 38!!! This was just a starter and at only 8... More

Visited for a meal in April we hadn't booked but they had a corner table left outside. The food was very good, I can recommend the rib eye steak which was chargrilled on the outside with a slight crispiness but still, juicy tender and pink on the inside. It was a great cut and big size as well. The service... More
