“Excellent food, good value for money and heavenly location”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is my favourite restaurant in Gozo and if you're looking for fresh fish, good value for money and a heavenly location just by the water's edge in Xlendi Bay, this is the place to visit. Been to the restaurant on a regular basis for the last few years and the quality of food and service has been consistent. Prices are reasonable for the quality food and the menu is so vast that you can eat a full three course lunch or dinner or simply a pizza or a platter. Joseph, the owner, makes you feel very welcome and at home whilst his staff provide good service. A place to visit for both locals and foreigners. Highly recommended.

“Great Restaurant!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We try to have a weeks villa holiday in Gozo every year and each time we do our week is not complete without at least one visit to Ta' Karolina in Xlendi Bay. Jo always gives us a warm welcome complimented by the fantastic food, friendly and efficient service and most relaxing of locations right by the waters edge. The food and especially the seafood is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Great restaurant run by a top bloke, we highly recommend it.
See you next year hopefully. Cheers. Simon&Janet, UK.
ps. Jo, we hope your new baby daughter is doing well, it wont be long before she is helping you in the family restaurant.

“Superb food and service”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely place to have lunch. The staff were absolutely marvellous and so friendly and helpful. The home-made ravioli with Gozo cheese and sauce napolitana was utterly delicious. The Maltese rose wine accompanied the food perfectly. I can highly recommend the chicken stroganoff. It was a shame I was too full to finish it all. I have rarely come across such engaging smiles from waiters and waitresses. I wish it could relocate to London!

Reviewed February 18, 2013

Fresh fish, pastas, meats and local dishes cooked expertly, served beautifully and accompanied by a choice of good wines. Perfect for any occasion. Gets very busy though so do book ahead.
