About Boathouse Restaurant & Gozo

Dear Patrons,

Having been in the restaurant business since 1995, we successfully managed to set up a few restaurants in Xlendi, Gozo. This positive track record encouraged us to acquire these premises as a boathouse which we converted into this gem of a restaurant in Xlendi Bay.

Back in 2010, when we opened The Boathouse Restaurant, little did we imagine that by 2017, we would a reputation for unique culinary experiences. Food has always taken centre stage in our lives and we have continued to build on our past experiences to offer our customers a one off dining experience.

Our restaurant is synonymous with quality dining, friendly service and exquisitely prepared dishes featuring local ingredients and traditional recipes.

Apart from specialising in the freshest fish and seafood we pride ourselves on our straightforward approach to serving our guests the best steaks: we buy the highest-quality ingredients and use a timeless recipe, each and every time. Our food is coupled with an array of local and international wines.

Perched on the water edge in Xlendi (one of Gozo's loveliest spots), the restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining, making our spaces ideal for romantic meals, family celebrations or private events. Our team is passionate about making every event an incredible experience, regardless of the size.

Although the past has been a success story, we will not stand on our laurels. We strive to continue improving our customer care and keep on providing a positive dining experience each and every time, making the Boathouse one of the top Gozitan restaurants.

About Gozo

Gozo, a Tranquil and Slow-Paced Small Island in the Mediterranean. All the Romantic travellers seeking a get away from the busy-mainland, Malta, should consider it as their getaway destination. Gozo is a ‎67 km2 island, with a population of just over 30,000. It is the second largest island in the Maltese archipelago. Contrary to mainland Malta, the Gozitan island has large areas of greenery and small hillsides. Being so close to the main island, the weather is very similar to Malta's.

Cliffs go around most parts of the coast of the island, giving locals fantastic views whether for dining, hiking or just relaxing on a deck chair. Gozo has a distinct leisurely feeling from that of Malta. In very few words it resembles Malta way back 50 years, at the same time with of the technology and comfort of modern day. It is a haven, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Where to go in Gozo

Gozo’s Capital City – Citta` Victoria

victoria The capital city is called Victoria, more often referred to as Rabat. Victoria is a fortified city, placed on a high point in Rabat, from where you could see to the coastline surrounding Gozo. In the past, it offered shelter from raiders.

The Citadel is spectacular, the old houses give it an idyllic setting and the small cathedral with the wonderful bastions give it even more character. This is largest Gozitan locality with a population of just over 6900.

Ggantija Temples

ggantija temples

Gozo has a very long history and the Ggantija Temples are where it all started, dating back to more than 5,500 years ago, that is earlier than the Egyptian pyramids. Built around 3600–2500 BCE, these temples are the world’s oldest free-standing structures in the Maltese archipelago. These have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and are definitely worth a visit.

Enjoy the Sun

Gozo has some wonderful sea. Some beaches worth visiting are Xlendi Bay, Ramla Bay and Marsalforn. You might also consider driving down to San Blast or DahletQorrot.

The first 2 beaches are easily accessible by bus. The latter not so much. Therefore, we recommend you rent a car to access these exclusive beaches.

Visit Xlendi

Xlendi managed to hold its slow paced rhythm which it used to have when it was still a sleepy fishing village until the 1960s, even though it is not a waterfront dominated by hotels and restaurants. We suggest that you first soak into the water and then enjoy its idyllic setting from a nice table of a restaurant in Xlendi Bay.

Finally, one has to say that this is fine spot for good restuants. The Boathouse restaurant is one of the finest around, as you can read for yourself on Tripadvisor.

The Boathouse restaurant is rated as one of the top restaurants on the island
