Best for Families - Expert review of Ta' Karolina

Family-run and family-friendly restaurant on Xlendi Bay.

A favourite with my family, Ta’ Karolina has tables right on the water’s edge –it's a lovely place for a lazy lunch or supper that doesn’t have to cost the earth.

Food and drink: 

There is good Italian pizza, pasta, excellent fresh fish and other tasty Maltese and Mediterranean dishes. Also chicken nuggets and chips if your kids are that way inclined.

Ambience: 

It offers laid-back al fresco eating (which is not a polite way of saying the service is bad!). There is also a pleasant inside

Service: 

The staff are friendly, helpful and willing to adjust dishes to kids’ tastes.

Location: 

It's in the corner of Xlendi Bay on the edge of a tiny sandy beach – perfect for the kids to paddle and splash while adults laze over a meal. For older kids there are steps up the cliffs next to the restaurant that should keep them happily exploring for a while. It's an exceptionally pleasant place to shade from the mid-day sun or watch the sun set over the bay.

Price advice: 

Pizzas cost from under 5 euros, pastas around 6 euros; fish and meat main courses average about 15 euros.

Tables to book: 

Book a table outside right on the water’s edge (weather permitting of course).
