Very good food, well served. A terrific location. Well worth a visit. A real Gozo food experience in an unspoilt Gozo location.

We visited here on the TA reviews and weren't disappointed the food was good we had swordfish, salmon and a pasta dish. The service was friendly however a little slow for ordering drinks and receiving them. Definitely worth another visit though!

A colleague of mine recommended this place and I can say that I certainly wasn't disappointed and you won't be either. Great location and atmosphere, cheerful and helpful staff, food is to die for and excellent value for money. A must visit but make sure that you make a reservation because it's unlikely that you will find a spare table.

Went for lunch, food is great and waiters are there to help. Right next to the sea, I guess it is very nice in the evening.

Tucked away in a secluded corner of an extremely busy complex of eating-houses and watering holes, the restaurant attracts its many customers by word of mouth. The intrepid customer running the gauntlet of its competitors invariably leads him to a uniquely enjoyable gastronomic experience.

A largish group of us - six in all - dined here one August evening. We found the ambience and decor really whimsical and perfect for dining by the sea on an island; the service was exceptionally good (always a surprise in most places in Malta and Gozo); the food - we all had fresh fish, and most of us...

Great restaurant, always have a lovely meal here, love the location too. Always need to book ahead as it's always busy. Spoilt for good choices on the menu.

We spent in Ta' Karolina a very nice evening. As we asked, our table was placed in the beautiful Xlendi Bay cave, what gave us an impression of exceptional privacy. The service was attentive, we were asked if everything was fine even too often. Very good food: mussels in wine with cherry tomatoes, spare ribs and rib eye steak. Some... More
