Ta’ Karolina Restaurant

"Excellent food, outstanding waitstaff and a beautiful view of Xlendi Bay"

By the sea dining, bordering the tiny stretch of sandy beach “bathed by the setting sun”, “charming bay views from a hidden corner of Xlendi”, “a sheltered restaurant visible only from the water”.  These descriptions could easily be mistaken for a film location. In reality they describe Ta’ Karolina. Named after a local lady, this establishment serving Mediterranean cuisine is regularly frequented by local clientele.
The menu is varied and covers a wide range of popular dishes including soups, pasta, meat and fish and pizza as well as daily specials. There are a selection of sharing platters for two. Start with the  prawn bisque or fresh steamed mussels pan tossed in garlic, fresh cherry tomatoes, white wine, basil and a hint of lemon juice or the homemadde pasta like simple ravioli with Gozo cheese filling and napolitana sauce. Sweet paprika chicken stroganoff comprised of strips in paprika seasoning cooked in a creamy sauce with mushrooms, mange tout and mixed bell peppers as well as fine cuts of black angus ribeye served with chips and salad or vegetables of the day and potatoes. Accompany your meal with a selection from the comprehensive wine list.
