Superb food and welcoming staff

Really competitively priced menu and outstanding quality. Stayed in Xlendi for a week and ate here twice - really enjoyed the atmosphere and nice touches such as complimentary "amuse bouches" and liqueurs to finish. Is only a few yards away from "The Boathouse" restaurant which is also excellent... read more

The food was excellent and there was a very good wine list featuring local Gozo and Maltese wine. When we arrived the second day the owner remembered us and reserved a special table next to the water. Even though... More

Ta' Karolina was recommended to us by a local. We walked by and checked out the menu. We decided to dine here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. We enjoyed the outdoor, enclosed seating. We would definitely return again.

We go to Ta' Karolina three or four times a year, and Joseph and his sister always look after us very well. The ambience is good, on the Xlendi seafront (end on the right) , and the food is what it is. Delicious fresh fish, and excellent meat for those who prefer it. Call and reserve, but ask if the...

The view was excellent, the staff attentive and helpful and the food delicious. The Prawn Bisque was wonderful - probably the best I've ever had.
