DON MESQUITA - A SPECIAL THANKS TO DOROTHY & EMMA!!

A friend and I stumbled upon this charming little place while wandering around Mdina for the day. Boy were we happy about that! Don Mesquita is located in the heart of a little picturesque square surrounded by stunning old villas. We were served by two lovely, friendly and very efficient ladies who waited on us hand and foot throughout the... More

We sought out this restaurant for lunch on a recent visit to Mdina. It met our expectations. After eating at several mediocre fish restaurants on the island, we were longing for decent salads. We ordered the Maltese and Greek salads, as well as a seafood sampler. All were made with good products, simply prepared. One young woman handled the service... More

Very friendly service, helpful and happy staff. Great lunch at a very reasonable price, well presented and tasty. This Restaurant is in a wonderful quiet square. This was a highlight of my Malta holiday. Well worth a visit, I am sure you won't be disappointed.

Really friendly staff and happy to help with the fussy English. Food was lovey. I would recommend the Maltese Platter and the Aperol Spritzer.

We chose this small, highly recommended restaurant because it served ftira (filled maltese bread rolls) which I was desperate to try before I left the island. The owner/manager was having no nonsense with serving cheap sandwiches for lunch. They had cooked local pork that morning and that was the very firm recommendation for lunch. Not just for our lunch -... More

Called in for a drink, impressed with half in a barrel glass.Later we came back for a shared Maltese platter and two glasses of wine. This is a hidden gem, good food, excellent service by great staff. Loved it and we will be back

Needed a quick light lunch. Went downstairs and had a lovely light meal with a great bottle of Rose. Service was good. The Maltese and Italian platters were just what the doctor ordered.

Without taking a map into Mdina, it was by pure luck that we stumbled across this incredible spot around lunch time. We took a table outside in the sun where we could people-watch and bask in the warmth. The owner is a lovely woman who took great care of us. We couldn't decide between platters, so we ordered the Maltese... More
