A very good setting next to the waters edge in the scenic village of Xlendi. Food and service was very good. We was there in August (Hot) but there is plenty of shade under the canopy. If you sit next to the waters edge you can feed the fish with bread in the clear water

The food here is delious! Xlendi is a must visit in the evening. The setting of the restaurant is by the water. Service was excellent all evening. I would recommend the mushrooms in cream and cognac for starters!

After we've ordered pappardelle gamberi and chicken ceaser salad, we were give some bread and bruschetta. First thing to... More

When you go back more than once there must be something good about this place! There are so many lovely places to eat in xlendi but we always make time to go to the stone crab. If you get a table right on the water keep a little of the Maltese bread and drop it in the sea and watch... More

My kids were 8 when they first ate pizza - at this restaurant one lunch time. The restaurant tables run up to the water's edge and at Easter, the occassional wave will send a salty aerosol along on the breeze and your senses will come alive. This summer, we went to the Stone Crab for dinner. have you ever taken... More
