Hopped in for a quick lunch which ended in a full blown meal. We were treated with free bruschetta while we waited for our starter which was divine risotto porcini. My main was catch of the day Red scorpion fish which I gladly shared with a friend.(The maltese tomato sauce with capers was to die for!) another friend had a... More

We visited the Stone Crab while staying in Gozo recently. We were shown a table pretty quickly. There was quite a lot of choice on the menu. We went for fresh fish and steak. The food didn't take too long, but we can't say it was worth the wait. The fish was overlooked, the steak tasteless. We might have just... More

Heavenly setting on the waterfront in Xlendi, Gozo. Our hotel recommended the restaurant next door for seafood but it was full - kind of glad as Stone Crab was superb. Fantastic seafood and really nice service with a young staff keen to help. Highly recommend and hope we can go back some time.

I came here a couple of years ago and didn't have the best meal, however I am pleased to say that this year my experience was a lot better. I decided to have the stuffed squid which was very tasty - tender and delicately seasoned. This was served with seasonal veg cooked just right. The wine we had with the... More

A very quiet evening in the Stone Crab despite both restaurants either side being full! Can't understand why more people weren't trying the Stone Crab as the food and service were both excellent. Would recommend and definitely go again when visiting Xlendi. Thank you for a lovely evening at the waterside.

...with my girlfriend to end our trip to Gozo. We didn't have a reservation but we found a nice table outside to enjoy the evening and atmosphere. My girlfriend has the chicken as she doesn't eat fish and it was really nice. My mixed seafood dish was good, although most of it was cold :( the warm bits were excellent.

Beautiful view at the bay. The fresh fish was delicious, cut at the table (deep sea fish). Friendly servers and tasteful vegetables. We really recommend it! Fair price.
