We dined in various restaurants in Xlendi but none compare with the all-round culinary experience of Stonecrab; delicious food, friendly and helpful staff and good service. After this experience we continued to frequent this restaurant and every time we were very satisfied. Highly recommended.

Okay the view is pretty but it is the same in the boathouse or in ta karolina and the food and service can only be better. Waiters take ages to being you food or the bill. And the dishes are not goot at all. We both took fish and it was definitely not fresh. Go somewhere else. You will only... More

We have taken note of your comment. As evidenced by our fish display, fish served at our restaurant is fresh from the local daily catch. In addition, we serve the fish that our clients choose from the display. It is normal practice that our staff checks with the clients whether everything is fine. From our records it is clear that...

We saw this restaurant during the day and decided to visit in the evening, it was a good choice. The food was good a nice selection and a table right by the sea meant you can see the fish coming into the bay swirling around. Out waiter gave us all a complementary liquor at the end of our meal, nice... More

We've been to Xlendi several times in the last ten years and The Stone Crab is always our first port of call for a lovely meal. Fresh, local produce and wine with the warm Med. lapping at your feet - perfect!

Visited here for dinner with a big group and was disappointed. Entree of calamari was nice. Friends had the chicken wings and didn't rate them. For mains - Pepperoni and Diavola pizzas literally had 5 slices of pepperoni or salami. Don't know why they would be so tight on the toppings. We picked them off and put them on one... More

Have been here a couple of times and I'm always impressed by the friendly service and delicious food, definitely recommend spaghetti Vongole which was one of the best I've tasted and the caprese salad. Portion sizes very generous. Service is speedy even when busy, will definitely be going again!

Whenever I visit the Island of Gozo I make it a point to have a great lunch or dinner at The Stone Crab. Apart from the relaxing atmosphere Xlendi offers, the restaurant's food is amazing. The staff is likewise great and very welcoming. If you want a good lunch/dinner and enjoy a relaxing night with your loved ones or friends,... More
