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.

Had quite a hard time booking a table as The Boat House restaurant is very popular but the seating capacity is not much. Anyway we managed it in the end and I don't regret our choice. The food was super-excellent and the service couldn't be better. The fact that you're sitting just 2 metres away from the sea gives you the impression that you are on a boat, but without any rolling. Overall a unique highly-recommended, experience.

This is a very pretty and popular bay and The Boathouse sits right on the waterside with its outside tables on decking. We had a late lunch and had to wait a while for a table. We ordered salads but we were also served with complimentary hot rolls and bruschettas. The salads were fresh, tasty and the portions generous. The pizzas on an adjacent table looked good, too! Service was friendly and efficient.

I have been to this restaurant a few times and it has never failed to satisfy my taste buds. I was there last Sunday with a group of friends and I must say that the food was absolutely amazing. We had two different types of antipasto to share and for main course we all had something different. My salmon was divine. Not to mention the contorni of which we had quite a big selection! The mashed potatoes and the fresh bread are to die for!! The service is super....very friendly welcoming staff yet so professional in what they do. Prices are reasonable and the view is an added bonus to the wonderful food! Looking forward to the next one! :)

The restaurant overlooks Xlendi Bay - it is literally in or on the bay. The food is very good - French/Italian cuisine. The steak was cooked as requested and the seafood starter was very good too. A nice pineapple juice with pineapple pieces accompanied the starter. Chips and Roast potatoes and the grilled veg were very good although I would have liked less oil on them. The view is very relaxing - beautiful emerald sea side contoured with overhanging cliffs. The only off-putting thing is when you sit on the inside of the restaurant, rather than overlooking the sea because of the passers-by who must necessarily pass near you when going over to the next restaurants. On the whole, we had a lovely meal. The price is comparatively that which you would expect for French/Italian cuisine in Malta.
