• The Churchill
    1 review

  • The Churchill is situated right by the water's edge in the scenic Xlendi Bay. Whilst you relax to the sound of the waves gently rolling against the shore, you may enjoy a hearty meal to your heart's delight.

    A typical meal could include Gozo Cheese salad for starters. You may then sample fish ravioli which are home-made. As a main course you may choose from either a variety of fish which will include a selection from the day's catch or from the selection of mouth-watering meat dishes.

    You may choose to go a la carte or choose from the fixed menu which is served both at lunch time as well as for dinner at a very reasonable price. If you prefer, the Churchill also serves a wide variety of pizzas ranging from the normal Margherita to the Churchill's Special.

    History of the place

    “The Churchill” started off as a boathouse used as a shelter for small fishing boats. Anthony Grech, the grandfather of Rosie Grech, the present owner started excavating in 1947. He was assisted by his two sons, Toni and Nicholas. It took them about four years to complete.

    But then Nicholas had the idea of using the cave as a bar to serve local fishermen and bathers. It was one of the only two bars in Xlendi at that time. Food was served as well which mainly consisted of rabbit stew and sandwiches. Nicholas was an admirer of Winston Churchill and could not help naming the bar after this great statesman. In 1985 his daughter Rosie took over the management at the age of 17 and has continually nurtured, expanded, and developed “The Churchill” over the past 28 years to become the Restaurant you see today.
