Whilst this place has a beautiful view, there is nothing to look forward to when it comes to the food and the choice of wine. Not one to recommend.

This place is ideal for wine and platters. Don't go there for Pizza and Pasta.... Also I ordered a cake for my birthday and I was charged 6 euro extra. We were 10 people and were disgusted with this surplus. If the rule of 10 people will tell 10 other people, 100 people will get the negative message. Thanks for... More

Went for an evening meal this evening, I had cheesey garlic bread starter and pollo pizza (minus mushrooms) for main and my friend had feta cheese for starter and pollo pizza for main. We soon regretted not getting a pizza or starter to share - the portions are large!! Food was absolutely beautiful though, just wish I could've finished it... More

It is a small wine bar and unfortunately it was raining so we weren't able to sit outside and enjoy the view. Nevertheless the experience was great and we were very well served. We asked for suggestions for the best wine alongside the platter we were choosing. We took their special platter. It was served within a matter of minutes... More

Sharing a roof terrace with Fontanelles, in the evening Vinum has a more sophisticated menu though I suspect alsdo share a kitchen. We had a great table with a fabulous view over the east of the island and shelter from thecwind and rain - yes it actually rained for a while! Unfortunately our selected wine wasn't available but they offered... More

Where to go on a late night in Mdina? if you love sipping wine accompanied with a good platter the answer is very simple.. Vinum Wine bar at the Fontanella Tea Gardens. Gave it a try on a late Saturday night. Popped in at around 11pm, the staff welcomed and guide us on the above part of the wine bar.... More

We sort of ended up eating here by mistake. Vinum shares its premises with Fontanella Tea gardens, and apparently after a certain point in the evening, the latter only serves cake. We were asked on the door whether we were there for dinner or for cake, we answered that we were there for dinner and were therefore given the Vinum... More
