Good dining experience

We had a nice dinner here. We turned up quite late - around 9 and said we only wanted starters and drinks and they were perfectly fine with that. Service was good although they did forget to bring our drinks until we reminded the waiter. The portions were huge and tasty and the wine was good... read more

The restaurant is literally by the sea which actually creates a fantastic atmosphere for lunch. It is situated adjacent to two other restaurants and thus is confusing which is which especially for reservations. The waitresses were nice to us but could be friendlier and wear a smile. They are all quite young and definitely have more to learn in their... More

This a delayed review having lost the business card but now having found it, there was a need to let visitors to Gozo know about the Stone Crab. We visited with friends who live on the Island and for that we were very lucky. The staff were exceptionally professional, friendly and polite. They assisted with recommendations and were a great...

Day trip to Gozo from Malta to spend it with my Gozo based cousin. After coffee and site seeing we arrived at the Stone Crab for lunch and all three of us were spoiled. Excellent local Gozoan wine, shared starter, bruschetta on the house, pasta with seafood and another complimentary item - liqueur to end. It could not be faulted.... More

The Stone Crab is a fantastic little restaurant set in a lovely bay with seating inside and outside right next to the sea! The service and food is perfect and very friendly helpful staff. We have eaten here a number of times over the years whenever we visit Gozo and always make a point of calling at least twice during... More

We finally managed to navigate our way to Xlendi but felt it was a bit late to expect to have lunch. However, here at the Stone Crab the staff were very welcoming and not at all put out at our late arrival. It was buzzing when we arrived, mostly locals with only the odd visitor which is always a good... More
