One of our all time favourite restaurants. We enjoy it particularly in the lovely weather, when we get to sit outside and enjoy good food and good wine with a fantastic view of Xlendi Bay. The serving staff are all extremely pleasant too! Highly recommended.

Restaurant serves lovely fish. Also other dishes, but it's speciality is fish. It is right at the water's edge in the once fishing village of Xlendi. One can capture the sea breeze and stunning views of the surrounding ding hills. Service is very good and friendly. Pricing is moderate.

This restaurant was recommended by our big foodie friend. We came at the lunch time in a stormy weather. The restaurant just located by the bay very close to the water. ( what I mean close is the window side wall is almost in the water. We are very lucky that w had a table by the window. It is... More

Visited with Mother-in-law, who is coeliac. Very impressed that staff new exactly what was and what wasn't gluten-free on the menu and that most sauces could be made that were gluten-free too. There was no question that gluten-free hot rolls were available to go with the delicious soup of the day. We chose to share the catch of the day,... More

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.
