Perfect seating by the water's edge on Xlendi bay. Excellent, attentive service, wide range of fresh fish dishes, and plenty other options too. Excellent value for money and becoming a firm favourite for wide choice of specials.

If you got nearer the sea you would be in it!
Set at the far left of the Xlendi waterfront the restaurant is unpretentious but with great simple food and wonderful service. The fish of the day are in a chilled cabinet so you pick from what's available. There's also good vegetarian options as well as excellent meat dishes.

We walked in but even in October the tables were busy with a lot of "locals" - a really good sign but we were lucky. The fish soup was excellent with potato and the spaghetti with seafood a hearty plateful. The pasta with vegetables was really liked by my son. Washed down with a bottle of local Green Label wine all at a very reasonable price plus coffee and limoncello its already on my Google Maps of eating places to return to!

Best of all was the service. You were treated like members of the family and nothing was too much trouble. You don't visit a restaurant like this only once!

We ate at Ta Karolina 4 times during our recent visit to Gozo and the quality of the meals and the service was 1st class every time. I have watched this restaurant go from strenght to strength over the years, and although you now have to book because it is always busy, the quality if anything has improved over the years. Joseph and his team work very hard to please and they always seem to deliver.A must for anyone visiting Gozo if you are looking for a reasonably priced meal with great service and a beautiful setting.

One of the main problems, often encountered, when eating out in sunny Malta, is a lack of service - with poorly trained waiting staff; too few of them; and meals taking ages to appear!
NOT SO at "Ta' Karolina" where Joseph, the owner, runs a very tight ship and where the staff are extremely polite, friendly & efficient.
Dining out here is always a great pleasure!
The quality of the food presented speaks for itself.
When visiting the Isle of Gozo "Ta' Karolina" is not to be missed.............
