Love the view

Mdina is amazing, and this wine bar has fantastic views. Pizza and platters are good. Service can do better and in my opinion prices are a bit high..

It had been a while since our last visit especially since the flu hit us hard this winter. Vinum generally used to be one of our haunts for a good platter and our favourite Lebanese wine. This time round, however, we were somewhat disappointed. In all fairness, we booked late 18.00 for 21.30. I would have preferred being told that... More

the owner who was waiting our table was very rude, my order of a mixed platter never came and my boyfriend's pizza was literally brought out after 2 minutes on a very busy Saturday, which suggests it being prepared beforehand. it tasted very bad, the dough tasted bland and tasteless. i strongly do not recommend

This is my second visit to Vinum, and overall I have seen a great improvement, which led me to reviewing the place. Firstly, the wine list seems to have been improved and the prices have remained reasonable, at around €18 for a good quality red wine. The food platters also seem to have become more abundant, the quality of the... More

Read reviews and went in search, we were not disappointed, lovely atmosphere, lovely staff, just what we needed on a cold and windy February night. Menu was small but the food was of an excellent quality there was also a very good selection of wines that were well looked after. If your in mdina go in search and enjoy.

Went here on a Wednesday with a friend. The place is nice and cosy. The menu is just two pages, but there's a lot of variations including starters, platters, salads, pasta, pizza and meat. The prices are good especially when taking into consideration the location and atmosphere. Waiters are overall attentive and the service is quite fast. I ordered pasta... More

Been there twice in December 14 and January 15. Both evenings were terribly cold but the atmosphere at Vinum was very warm and cozy. First time we had the Vinum special platter which was more than enough for two people. Second time we had dips platter. And a pizza. The dips were very good, but I've had better pizzas. The... More

We've eaten dinner at Vinum and had tea at the associated Fontanellas this week. Lovely dinner of pasta and rabbit stew followed by wonderful cake - the carrot cake is amazing! We ate dinner in the garden but when we returned for afternoon tea we managed to get a table on the terrace. Unfortunately we had to retreat indoors as... More
