We aim at providing our clients  with an exquisite meal which results in a divine experience. This is a wonderful restaurant from where one could enjoy a wonderful sunset -without the flies which disturb so many dining experiences on the Gozitan coast.

Da Manuel Restaurant is located in Xlendi- a small fishing village in the South –West of Gozo. Xlendi is surrounded by three villages: Kercem, Munxar and Fontana which lead the way to a picturesque village.  Though it is distinctive from other villages it falls under the administration of the Munxar Local Council..
Xlendi is a charming village with a pebbly bay and a small valley called Kantra. “Il-Kantra”  as referred to by locals is one of the most beautiful features of the village.  It is situated on the left of the bay just beside the tower. The tower guarding the mouth of the bay was built by the Grandmaster Lascaris in the 1650’s. Da Manuel is located above the Kantra facing the Xlendi Tower  enjoying fantastic sea, sunset and cliff views, far away from the hustle and bustle of the marina.
