Good food, slow service but not for young people. I was there alone and after the lunch most of the tables recived Limonchelo shot, but not me and some young cuple sitting around.

I had lunch there in October. All types of sea products were fresh. Fresh fish, calamari and octopus were delicious. If you have chance to find a seat just near by the sea, the satisfaction doubles due to the view of Xlendi Bay. Highly recommend.

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.
