This place has better food... More

Situated on a hill above the Xlendi harbour, Da Manuel restaurant offers a broad range of delicious dishes with a very homey atmosphere. The service was excellent, it`s definitely a restaurant well worthy experiencing.

Hidden away on the hill above Xlendi harbour this restaurant serves absolutely delicious food.Overlooking the wadi that flows into the harbour the view is well worth finding if in Xlendi.

11 of us arrived for dinner but we hadn't booked, there was no problem moving tables outside to accommodate us. We watched the amazing sunset over the cliffs. We ordered fish and the waiter told us he would make sure there were no bones etc. After 2 mins one of the girls changed her mind and re ordered. We waited... More

The very good, calm music combined with the good, actually very good food (the choice of herbs was superb!!) and the friendly, personal atmosphere between customer and staff did convince me! Take the amazing view you got there and add that to everything above and you have a perfect evening! I am totally convinced!!🙏🏻😻
