8 of us ate at this great restaurant several times recently. Wide range of choice on the menu and each time all of our meals were excellent. Service was efficient and friendly and the location right at the waters edge is amazing. We have dined here many times over the years and always look forward to returning. Every meal we had here was thoroughly enjoyed which is why it is a firm favourite.

Like Ta'Karolina this place is blessed with lovely views and certainly holds its own in terms of food quality. Three of our party were drawn to the lobster stuffed ravioli and it was utterly delicious and very generous in portion size, as were the mussells and aromatic duck enjoyed by the rest of the party. Quick, friendly service added to a lovely relaxed evening and whilst I think Ta'Karolina still holds the Gozo crown, Moby Dick is still well worth an evening of anyones time.

Well I always start my reviews with a mixed blessings as there is always a plus and a minus but having arrived at Xlendi which has the most lovely setting for a small beach with lots of little areas where you can "lose oneself" we had been recomended the Moby Dick for good value.Well there is no plus or minus but full marks for friendly and efficient service and what was supposed to be a "snack" turned out to be the best pizza I have ever tasted!! it was the pizza marinara beautiful fresh seafood on a perfect base ,what an absolute gem !!!

We stopped of at Xlendi - pronounced Shlendi - on Gozo for lunch. our guide suggested the Mobydick. Sitting outside under the canopy with the blue sea lapping justy a few feet away was lovely. Although a busy lunchtime, our waitress pointed out their special - fish soup followed by sea bream, with chips & salad and all for just €18. The fish soup came - a large bowl full and this was delicious. Once that was gone, a whole fish cooked just right.
A really nice lunch in a lovely setting - accompanied by a very palatable carafe of house wine for just €6. heartlity recommended

We were recommended the Moby Dick by a chance conversation with an English lady who has a flat in Gozo who I met whilst swimming one day. We wanted to have a later dinner and did not want to book so thought we would try and get in at the Moby Dick, we arrived about 8.30ish and got a table no problem, that's not to say they did not have diners as they did but there were a few free tables. You over look the bay looking directly out to sea and by this time of night the lights were coming on giving a lovely glow to the area. We had been advised that they did great steaks and that also the Chinese was good too as they have a Chinese chef! By day 8 of our holiday we had had enough of seafood and were wanting something different, I ordered the beef fillet and my husband had sizzling sweet chilli chicken and egg fried rice. The steak was melt in the mouth delicious and cooked to perfection (medium) The waiters all had smiles and were happy to chat whilst providing a great service too. They give you complimentary bruschetta whilst you are waiting for your food to be cooked. This was a very relaxed place to dine regardless of it being one of the restaurants which has a walk way through the middle at no time did it detract from the meal or ambience of the place. The head waiter was very efficient and friendly as were all of the staff and this added to our enjoyment so much so we went back again the next night and enjoyed it all again.
Xlendi is a lovely little seafront resort with a nice feel to it nothing tacky or tatty - not like Marsalforn.
Would highly recommend this restaurant as a good value and friendly place to eat.
