This year I celebrated my birthday with my family at Ta` Karolina restaurant in Xlendi Gozo. Though it is not the first time I visited this superb restaurant I continue returning for a good meal especially when I want to treat foreigners. As always the food was exquisite and the service excellent. I recommend this restaurant to anyone anytime.

went here for a day trip, the restaurant was one of many, and the food was of good quality, and prices were good. I had the special for that day and enjoyed it all. Seated outside, but not all is covered, so if raining, could get wet, fortunately was dry when we visited.

You name you have it. Delicious fresh food. Brilliant family run service. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Do book in advance as this is the only restaurant in Xlendi which fills up pretty quickly at all times.

During our visit in Xlendi we wanted to dine in different restaurant each day however after meal in Ta'Karolina we changed our minds. We stayed in Xlendi for five days and every single dinner we had in this restaurant. Every meal was really great. Location is beautiful and staff is nice. Thank you for that. I definitely recommend to everyone.

We went there for an evening meal and were sat inside the restaurant as there was large party in the outside area. There is not a great deal I can say about this restaurant really, the food was good, the service efficient and we did not have to wait for service. Having been to a number of other restaurants in...

Our group of 6 ate everything from fish, to pasta and pizza. The service is extremely slow, but the location cannot be beat. Definitely sit outside or have them put a table near the water for you. That way the wait will be bearable. The food is decent and the seafood fresh. Fresh food with a view. A bit pricey,... More
