Just enjoyed a lovely evening in Xlendi Bay at Ta Karolina. Friendly and helpful staff, amazing food and a wonderful waterside location watching the sun go down and the town come to life.

One of the more luxurious restaurantes in Xlendi. Great service. Nice staff and good food. A little expensive, but you pay for what you get

I thought everything about Ta' Karolina was excellent. Friendly staff, great location, loads of choice on the menu! However, there is so much food on the plate that you would have had to starve yourself the day before in order to have any chance of getting through 2 courses let alone 3! The portion sizes certainly need looking at. Yet,... More

Really good food. The mussels and steak are excellent. The only negative i can say is that local people are allowed to come in and try to sell to the people eating. Its not pressure selling but annoying.

We had two excellent evening meals at Karolina whilst in Gozo, both times booked online with no fuss. The steak is particularly good. If not windy, I recommend a table for two along the side of the small harbour.

We had a lovely meal sitting at a table beside the water (booking necessary). The food was very good - nice calamari and gozitan pizza. However the end of the meal was spoiled by the waiters dismantling the restaurant and not bothering with their customers. Another negative was being mischarged for food and drinks we did not order. So quite... More

We ate here on our last night and wished we'd come here sooner. Service was excellent, the view was beautiful and the food fabulous. We had Smoked Fish Platter, Aljotta and Calamari starters. The fish in the platter was wonderful. The calamari was crisp and had very little residual oil. The Aljotta was perfect wich just a pinch of salt... More

The food here is amazing. I don't think you can really go wrong with anything on the menu. It's so popular that you probably need to make a reservation on weekday evenings in summer. Very well priced. However, the tables along the water get very dark later in the evening so unless you're ok with not seeing your food then... More
