As well as offering one of the smallest choice of meals on a menu I have ever seen, there was nothing for vegetarians so we got up and left!

The service was great, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was just what you would expect for a busy but relaxed cafe in the beautiful old town of Mdina. Well worth a visit.

We stopped in to check out Mdina and got hungry and saw the great reviews for Don Mesquita. The reviews are right! This place is great and has great prices too. The ambiance was excellent and the waitstaff was very attentive, spoke perfect English and their recommendations were spot on. Highly recommend!

We arrived late for lunch as the restaurant was closing but they accommodated us and did not rush our lunch. We ordered pumpkin soup which was served with crispy flat bread, followed by a mixed platter of Gozitan cheese, olives sun dried tomatoes and two spicy dips. The food was all freshly prepared and tasty and served pleasantly. Excellent value.

Stumbled on this gem by accident when waking around Mdina. Small and quaint restaurant great for a drink and pick me up snack. We have a sharing platter that was very nice - just enough for two and drinks. Reasonably prices & friendly staff. Would go again if in the area.
