Both food and service were great!

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... read 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.

We have been coming to Mdina for the last 3 years, and it would not be the same without lovely Dorothy and Emma running this lovely little place let me tell you! They are really nice people and we love to go in for lunch, always lovely fresh salads and wraps and very good service. There is nothing like sitting... More

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.
