Impressive building in historical town looked very promising. However service was non- existent, food less than average and overpriced with nearly undrinkable house wine.A tourist trap to be avoided?

The food is exquisite, and the service discreet. Every time I visit, I remember why I enjoy this place so much. The food is an intricate and flavorful feast for the senses, and the atmosphere is Greco-Roman. Quite stunning, really, and in all the times I visited, I've never been disappointed. With all the crap restaurants on the Maltese islands,... More

Overpriced and not really tasty!! Quite a disappointment. Also, the staff was kind of stressed out even though they only had like 5 tables to waiter... Mediocre tasting food.

Didn't know where to eat in the 'quiet city' Mdina, so relied on high Tripadvisor score. We were in for a easy and long diner, but found ourselves back on the street after 1 hour (apero + first course + main course). The pasta with two-cheeses-sauce was heavy, so was the lasagne with chicken. Food is ok but you expect... More

We were seated on the terrace, which was not so nice. The main course followed straight after the starter (beautiful tempura asparagus) and we felt a bit rushed. I had high expectations reading all the great reviews but was a bit disappointed. The food is ok, but the evening was, in my experience, not so great.

Went to this restaurant after first inquiring at the door whether it was possible to get a coffee and cold drinks. On being reassured this was possible and escorted to the "secret garden" by a waiter we were directed to an awful unset side table next to the kitchen next to a gentleman who was smoking non stop.

That's my view anyway! Everytime we come, the service, the food, and the setting is always perfect. The food is tasty and this year was no different. We sat in the courtyard this time and it was a perfect Saturday lunch. My husband had the shin of beef which he said was very good & mine was very tasty too.... More
