Hidden away but worth finding!

Came across this after seeing a board at the end of a pathway in Mdina. Owner was delightful, had a fantastic Italian platter and a large glass of local white Sauvignon wine which was gorgeous! Ambience was relaxed, very small place but well worth a visit - highly recommended!

A hidden gem in the heart of Mdina offers a tranquil setting with local specialities. We ordered wine and cheese platter to share. Food was well presented and the staff was great.

Stumbled across this place during a recent visit to Midina and was rather impressed. Very cosy atmosphere with friendly staff. Had tea and the most delicious and moist chocolate cake. Recommend a visit

Found this place by a chance in the sun at a quiet romantic square. The Maltese Platter with some wine was perfect! The chocolate cake as dessert was amazing! Very nice service, quick serving and good prices! Highly recommended!
