Had a perfect sea food meal. Waiters were very efficient to change our table from sea edge due to unpredictable storm. Will be visiting again in near future.

Servers were pleasant and did their best. What on earth was happening in the kitchen I have so idea though. A one and a half hour wait for a fried calamari starter, which was tough as boots. We asked them to rush the main course as we didn't want to spend the whole there. They did. Then out came the rabbit speciality of the house: a rabbit doused in a sauce of what, red wine, oil and flour? Appalling.

Dear reviewer we would like to respond to your review so that our clients can know our part of the story. To begin with, the wait of one and a half our for a fried calamari starter is not true and its a complete lie. Secondly the rabbit is not cooked in flour and its not our speciality its a normal menu item, the ingredients are as follows it is cooked in garlic, fresh seasonal herbs and red wine.

The management feels offended with such a review since the review is a lie. Please when writing a review remember about honest.

We have been to this amazing restaurant so many times but this last visit excelled! Staff were very welcoming and helpful with choosing a 'fish dish'. My lampuka fish was cooked and served to perfection.
This really is my most favourite place in the world. Love it!
Thank you Stone Crab staff for a lovely lovely meal, see you again next year.

Eating at The Stone Crab on a Saturday night is a busy, often noisy, colourful occasion. We were are party of four and had [luckily] booked in advance.
I've eaten here before, but never on a Saturday night.
Yes, it was crowded and the tables were a little too close together. Yes sometimes our neighbours conversation seemed to cut across ours. But the food quality was what I'd always expect from this restaurant and the staff, although clearly working very hard didn't let the service slip.
On a Saturday night, dinner at the Stone Crab probably isn't your ideal 'quiet couples evening', but for a group of friends looking for good food, plenty of wine and a fine night out it has to be one of the 'places to be' on Gozo.

We have dined at this restaurant on several occasions. Its main attraction is its proximity to the water in the bay at Xlendi. For this reason it is usually extremely busy and reservations are essential especially if you want to be at the water's edge. Tables are too close together and the place can be very noisy and crowded. The menu is pretty much the same as most Gozo restaurants - a range of pastas, salads, main courses of meat and fish etc and the proices are comparable with other places of its kind. Food is perfectly OK though we would not describe it as 'the best ever'. Service is usually friendly and efficient though a wait is likely when the place is full.
