Few table and small menu.. Good ingredients for a good place for lunch! It was indeed a good choice for a Maltese wrap and a tuna salad very well prepared. The wrap was really enjoyable with a typical local flavor: just the side chips slightly spoiled the experience. Side note: service is really fast...unique features in the sorroundings!

Enjoyable stay here. The service was lovely and the place is rustic and feels really cozy. I asked for an alternative to the bread my platter was served with and I got extra mozzarella with fresh tomatoes which I totally loved. They have also a great selection of wines, and the restaurant has also a fresh underground basement like area... More

We visited Don Mesquita for lunch and took the different platters on offer. This is a small friendly wine bar with an excellent service. Very recommenable.

We found this place accidently whilst walking around mdina. They serve platters and snacks. The Italian wrap was really nice. Have to say the lady that was running the place was extremely nice and genuine. They had no electricity and she was super accommodating.

We found this bar while wandering round Mdina. The lovely food was perfect for a hot day. The square is so picturesque the a fashion photo-shoot arrived while we were there.

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.
