Its our favourite restaurant in Gozo. Its fresh fish dishes are cooked with gusto and in summer it is lovely dining a few metres away from the sea splashing the shore. Highly recommended

Xlendi Bay is a beautiful place and not short of good restaurants but we think Ta' Karolina is the best. It's not the easiest to find tucked behind the Boathouse and the Stone Crab but well worth the effort. We were welcomed on both our visits and the service overall was pleasantly casual and professional. Beware you will be offered... More

Very good food. I had calamari as a main and my mother ravioli with cheese. Both courses were delicious (they also serve very good appetizers).

Went here in the middle of Feb. The seating was outside but they sat us next to one of the heaters and turned it up for us as it was unusually wet and cold for the time of year. The food was really good, lots of variety so would suit a group where tastes vary. Service was very good and... More

Ta' Karolina was recommended by another restaurant in Marsalforn where we were staying. It's a 15ish minute car ride to Xlendi from Marsalforn and quite enjoyable too. There's a lot to be said for its location, truly picturesque with the restaurant tucked away behind two other restaurants, the boathouse and stone crab, in the right corner of the bay with... More

We went there and enjoyed our sun shine scene in Xlendi Bay. You must go to the very end of bay to see it. I have checked the menu and price and they were providing good value by the standard of their decoration. And I would suggest you to try the family ice cream shop. Very nice one...
