Excellent food and wine, as usual !

The complimentary bruchettas were delicious, as were the complimentary rolls, We all enjoyed our delicious food with a lovely bottle of wine. Our table was a little too close to the water's edge for my liking, so the waiter immediately moved our table away by a foot or so! All the staff were... read more

The crab ravioli are their signature dish which never fails to be sublime. The grilled squid is another favourite.

This restaurant has a very nice view on the sea, located in one of the best sea-place I've ever seen: Xlendi. But let's talk about the food. We got sea food plate and salmon, the service was great, fast and nice. The food was perfect, wine delicious and at the end they offer us also a limoncello. For sure I... More

We normally eat at the other two restaurants next to Stonecrab and we often wonder why this is never busy. Today we understood why... Due to the festive season and the unseasonal warm weather, all restaurants in Xlendi were booked (we needed a table of eight) so we thought we'd give Stonecrab a try. This turned out to be a...

We happened to be in Xlendi and came to Stone Crab for a nice lunch by the sea.. The setting is nice and the staff were very friendly, however I was not impressed with the quality of the fish especially the shell fish... The dessert also left much to be desired.. It's a pity that such a nice place and... More

We had the privilege of eating here as part of our tour of Gozo. The staff was extremely nice and the service efficient. The food was delicious! It was one of my favorite meals during our trip. Gozo is beautiful anyway, but eating right on the water was such a treat. The fish I had was so fresh, my husbands... More

We booked two days in advance and could only get a table for that day as all others were fully booked. A good sign! Food was very tasty and home cooked. Service was great and the bill was very reasonable. Well worth a visit when in Xlendi.

We were a group of about 50, so I expected problems and delays. Instead, we received excellent, professional service and deliciously prepared food. The experice was a really good one and is highly recommended.
