We heard this was the best restaurant in Gozo. It didn’t disappoint. It’s not that cheap, but won’t break the bank. We ordered the fried calamari as a starter (not in the menu, but just ask) and the lobster ravioli (divine! Only gripe is there...More

First time we went on a Wednesday lunchtime and enjoyed it so much we booked again for the Friday evening. Despite not being fish eaters, the meat dishes (and in particular the spare ribs were absolutely delicious). Lovely location, literally sat on a quiet edge...More

This place has one of the cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen but the food was so average and unremarkable its hard to find anything positive or overly negative to remark about. No real value for money.

In lovely Xlendi Bay this restaurant offers really fresh fish with a great setting. Tables are on the quay side right next to the sea, A good range of Maltese dishes and polite service.

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.
