It was too cold to eat outside, but the indoor area has tables with the view as well. We were always offered the daily specials, which were local, fresh delicacies. From the menu, it... More

This was my second stay in Xlendi (lots of experience with Xlendi restaurants) and I have to say I really preferred this place to the super central restaurants lower down in Xlendi. This place has better food... More

Food is extraordinary and there is a very wide selection of local and foreign wines. Had the beef tagliata and portobello mushrooms which very good. I highly... More

Situated on a hill above the Xlendi harbour, Da Manuel restaurant offers a broad range of delicious dishes with a very homey atmosphere. The service was excellent, it`s definitely a restaurant well worthy experiencing.

Hidden away on the hill above Xlendi harbour this restaurant serves absolutely delicious food.Overlooking the wadi that flows into the harbour the view is well worth finding if in Xlendi.

11 of us arrived for dinner but we hadn't booked, there was no problem moving tables outside to accommodate us. We watched the amazing sunset over the cliffs. We ordered fish and the waiter told us he would make sure there were no bones etc. After 2 mins one of the girls changed her mind and re ordered. We waited... More
