Lovely restaurant

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.

After a long trek we arrived in Mdina and was so hungry! We stumbled across this place, food is basic but nice. We had the Maltese platter which was more than enough for two people. The waitress was lovely.

After a wonderful wander around M'dina, we escaped the rowds & walked off the beaten trak to find the Plazza Mesquita. The little wine bar was cool & welcoming. A range of ice cold beers, complemented the spectacular salads we were given...along with the traditional olive bread. gorgeous!

We found this location while walking through Mdina as hunger was setting in. What a great decision to stop in. We chose the Maltese Platter and two glasses of local white wine. What a great treat! Delicious and filling. The service and atmosphere are great!!!

This is probably one of the best wine bars on the Island of Malta. The wine is of the highest quality and the platters are to die for. The range of food was of the best and considering it is only quite a small wine bar, but an excellent reputation. Well done to all.

Walking round Mdina we just happened to spot a sign pointing up a side street for this cafe. As it was about lunchtime we decided to check it out and we were so glad we did. It is a tiny place with maybe four small tables on the ground floor and the same in the cellar, accessed by a narrow... More

This restaurant was a lovely cool retreat in the Silent City of Mdina. We immediately felt welcomed by the friendly staff and the food was fresh and full of flavour.

This place is tuck away inside the silent city of Mdina, Malta. We had a Maltese platter and a glass of Mt. Etna Wine. The Maltese platter is delicious consisting of Maltese sausage, goat cheese, a bean paste dip and a tuna base dip, olives, tomatoes, capers. All ingredients are very fresh and delicately prepared and presented. A truly mediterranean... More
