Delicious food! Beautiful seaside setting (romantic too). Fresh fish (tonight had a cipolazza). Friendly service. Clean bathrooms. Highchairs for children and clean baby's changing table. First class.

which again is about the best recommendation a restaurant can get :-) Very good seafood, good organized staff, and this in a very nice location. Well, as on weekends they are extremely business this sometimes might have some impact on the speed on everything - just the down site of the success :-) Never the less they manage that very...

Ta' Karolina is a small restaurant tucked away in the corner of Xlendi, with a cozy ambiance and a nice view of the bay. The food is good, and the staff is even better - very attentive and polite. Probably your best bet in Xlendi.

Every time we visit Gozo, we try different restaurants in Xlendi but Ta' Karolina is the best. The food is to die for, the staff are really friendly and the location is perfect.

We were a party of 8 without booking. They arranged a quick table for us, got us free brushetta and were very helpful with my coeliac friend. The pasta with seafood was in reality seafood with pasta. It had abundant seafood. Very nice indeed. At the end we were given a liquor on the house. Amazing lication too!!

First ate here last year, and it's now always our first port of call. Every member of staff can not do enough for you, the setting on the wall is fabulous, the food is gorgeous. It's like a perfect storm; everything comes together, every time. I can't remember how many times we've eaten here, but always looking forward to the... More
