I've been to this place for an infinite number of times. However I decided to write this review after a good Friday evening experiences. The atmosphere is magical and also quiet. Without any doubt, I would suggest a better staff training for the simple reason that even though giving space to clients is a good thing, but sometimes giving too... More

I called and booked in advance, but I was not told that our table will not be indoors... I was not given an option. When we arrived there on a very rainy Saturday night we were given our out door table. At least we had a gas heater which kept us warm and we were very thankful for it! The... More

We are regular clients of Vinum. All we suggest is to just reserve a table outside in summer, indoors in winter, and order the "Vinum Special" platter (for two to share or more) with lots of wine!! It's the best. Lots of typical Maltese ingredients, prices are very reasonable......then end the night with some delicious Italian grappa or any one... More

Me and my husband visited Vinum Winebar since we wished to drink a bottle of wine and nibble onsome Platter. We ordered the Vinum special which was fabulous. Very good cheese and coldcuts accompanied by veg and fruit chicken and calamari rings. It is quite a large portion that we did not manage to eat it all. Wished had the... More

We had a dinner here in a group of four and managed to get a table at the top with terrific views over much of Malta – this is a busy place and the wait staff don’t have a lot of time to chat and be friendly – relatively efficient I would say We had pasta it was ok but... More

Had a very poor experience recently. I booked a table for two (which was confirmed). when we arrived the table was not available and was left to wait, after some time I was asked to follow a server to a corner where they had scraped out some space where it was difficult to seat one person let alone two! This... More

The food and service is very good, and they have a good selection of wines. The location is beautiful, however I recommend making a reservation in advance, preferably on the terrace as there is a lovely view of the island.

We always make sure we pay a visit to Vinum on our trips to Malta... you can call us 'repeat offenders'. The place has everything going for it: a great local menu, good service, excellent value for money, atmospheric, and the most suprb location imaginable, atop a terrace perched on the citadel's bastions. The food is simply mouth watering and... More

Highly recommended. We ordered one platter and it was too much for two. Really exceeded our expectations.

I booked a party of 20 at the Virum Wine Bar for my mother's Birthday. The management kindly offered us a flowing food, wine and water option at a great price and also provided us with a private room which suited us perfectly! The service was better than i could've hoped for!! Very attentive, polite and efficient staff! The night... More
