Highs: lovely location; good quality menu; good level of service Lows: pizzas were great but other food we ordered - burgers and pasta were of fair quality not outstanding. Overall: would recommend as a lovely quiet location with attentive service. Great for a quick light lunch when tired of the crowds.

Recently visited for lunch. This is a quality establishment. The food - even though we only had a burger and pasta was both excellent and very good value. Please note the portions are very big and even though my wife only had a starter pasta dish this was the equivalent to a main course. The service was excellent with attentive... More

Outdoor seating area was nice, cool in the shade of the city's stone walls and under sunshades. A plate of Maltese starters with half a bottle of local wine proved a good choice.

We've had lunch there once and just coffee and cold drinks on another occasion. Lovely quiet setting, comfortable shaded seating and decent service.

This was our last stop in Mdina before heading back to Sliema. We only had coffee but loved the experience nonetheless. Beautiful patio, very rustic/historic interior, and great service. The coffees/cappuccinos were delicious.

We ate around 2.p.m and sat outside under the parasols. The non alcoholic cocktails are delicious and refreshing, and our mains were great. My partner had steak with chips and vegetables (which was not exactly to his liking but still good) and I had very succulent chicken with creamy mushrooms, roast potatoes and side salad. Service was very good and... More

We came here after having some poor service at Ciappetti's. Outstanding service and great food. They were entertaining a large party of 30 at the same time but the service didn't suffer.
