Forget THe Boathouse - go through it and find The Stone Crab next door - wonderful service and food. Found by accident but have been back 4 times. Fresh fish out of this world - especially the ugly one (Rock fish).

Been there this midday visiting Xlendi. Chose without preconceived idea. Excellent restaurant. The staff is very nice and helpful, the food is simple but fresh, tasty, well prepared. Good value for the money. Good location. I definitely recommend.
