The Stone Crab is my favourite restaurant in Xlendi and is my first stop as soon as I arrive on holiday. Situated at the waters edge in this beautiful bay, you won't find a better location anywhere. Even the local fish gather at the edge waiting to be fed. The staff are always very friendly and helpful and will even... More

As we approached this area we saw 3 restaurants, the first restaurant menu was too expensive and the menu wasn't attractive. So we went on to see the second restaurant menu but as we were approaching to the second restaurant some of the first restaurant waiters seemed to block the pathway and to enforce people to sit in their restaurant....

We where in gozo and we went to this small fishing village called xlendi which was part of our hop on hop off tour. We have seen all the menus of the three small restaurants near each other and the best menu which was vast of choice and with reasonable price was the middle one. We were given a table... More

After struggling to find gluten free places In Malta, we stumbled across this we gem. For a starter they brought out gluten free bruschetta complimentary, then we ordered Gluten free pizza which was very good along with a nice bottle of New Zealand wine. Also the location was great and the toilets were very clean. Overall a very good experience... More

We ordered the seafood platter and the prawns and crab were not fresh and probably frozen. The crab was grey and the meat inside was as stale as old bread. The prawns were shrivelled and rubbery. It’s simply a crime that seafood of such pitiful standard should be served so near the sea. Don’t venture any further than the Boat... More

The Stone Crab staff is offended by the title of this review although every reviewer has his/her opinion. First of all our staff are highly trained to deal with complaints there and then so you were surely asked if everything was ok by the waiters and you should have complained at that moment. Secondly we always buy fresh king prawns... More

We came here for dinner, but managed to watch some of the world cup as well. Great position in Xlendi as it is right on the waterfront. It is always busy, which is a good sign with any restaurant. They were also very accommodating with our two boys making sure we had two high chairs. We ordered our food and... More

Had lunch here right by the water with lots of little fish swimming around, if you throw in some bread you can watch hundreds swimming. Must try the crab ravioli which is the best I've ever had and also the fried calamari which is quite hard to find on Gozo was also great. Staff seemed a bit tired but it... More
