Description: Situated right on the water's edge and next to the statue of St. Andrew in the fishermen's area of the bay, The Boat House Restaurant is ably run by Joseph Attard and his wife Rose. It has established itself as a must visit restaurant when visiting Gozo by Maltese and foreigners alike. The location enjoys the warm sunshine on winter afternoons and romantic sunsets. The choice of starters and main courses is endless. On top of that, there are the 'Specialities of the Day'. The fish display is a clear statement about the freshness of the daily catch. All items on the menu are prepared with ingredients of the highest quality. The selection of in-house desserts is tempting. The Wine List includes a large variety of local and foreign wines to please all wine lovers. Service is professional, fast and efficient but not rushed. Open for late lunches. The opening hours listed on this page are valid from 1st April up to 31st October. More detailed opening hours on website or facebook page.

The is one of my favourite places in Gozo to eat, the location is beautiful, the staff are wonderful, we have been quite a few times in both winter and summer, they are always happy to give us a lovely table by the sea, they are always incredibly polite and knowledgeable about the food and nothing is to much trouble! The set menu is very reasonable and offers a great choice! There is also a lot of choice within the main menu and I think this restaurant would cater to everyone's tastes! The food is delicious, good quality, well cooked, beautifully presented, and the chefs are fantastic. The staff are very efficient and are always smart, smiling and without a doubt working very hard for us! We love coming here and it is always a treat when we come to xlendi, however the place does need to be booked in advance as it does get very busy! And finally I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff and the chefs for making the boat house a great experience every time we visit!

I visited this restaurant last Saturday 06.07.13, with my fiance and his mother. We sat outside close to the sea, and already the breath taking view and being so close to the sea started off this experience as a positive one. We were attended to very quickly by very nice waiters who genuinely smile and take pride in their work even when explaining about the food or to answer any of our queries.With regards to the food, we had soup, home made pasta, spaghetti with rabbit sauce (listed as speciality) and seafood. The food was definetely to die for, with all the ingredients being fresh and presented impeccably. I could go on and on about the amazing quality of the food, the nice free bruschetta, top notch service and the complimentary limoncello at the end of the meal, not to mention the great value for money, we only paid EUR 42 for 1 starter, 3 main courses and 2 rounds of drinks. I would definetely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Gozo cause it would certainly make your visit even more worthwhile.

I've been to the Boathouse 3 or 4 times over one year and have never been disappointed with the food. The restaurant does get incredibly busy at peak times so booking is highly recommended or you will be turned away or face a long wait. At peak times service is a little slow, but the food makes up for it. Not very expensive and generally very good. Will be back.
