Ta’ Karolina, with its seaside dining by a tiny stretch of sandy beach and charming bay views could easily be mistaken for a film location. This sheltered restaurant, visible only from the water side, offers a dreamy experience for those who wish to tuck themselves away from sight and enjoy a peaceful dining experience. Named after a local lady, this establishment serving Mediterranean cuisine, is regularly frequented by locals.
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 homemade salmon fish cake served with tartar sauce and caponata. Follow this up with fresh homemade pasta such as simple ravioli with Gozo cheese filling and Napoletana sauce. The sweet paprika chicken Stroganoff featuring chicken strips in paprika seasoning, cooked in a creamy sauce with mushrooms, mange tout and mixed bell peppers is lovely, as are fine cuts of black Angus rib-eye served with chips and salad or vegetables of the day and potatoes. Accompany your meal with a selection from the comprehensive wine list.
