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. The restaurant opens daily and caters for late lunches.

“Good food lovely views”

On a day trip to Gozo we stopped in by for some lunch. Great selection for seafood and pasta lover alike. King prawns were a treat and the yogurt chicken was magnificent. Well worth a visit

“Always a Pleasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Every time we're at Gozo, a visit To The Boat House in Xlendi is a must!! Always greeted in a perfect way to start lunch or dinner by Kevin, the restaurant manager. Superb food, immaculate service and wonderful environment. Tried nearly every dish, all perfectly cooked but fish dishes are superb!! And the Limoncello offered on the house to finish off the meal is always appreciated. Keep it up all @ The Boat House :-)
