We were sat at Le Jardin Secret. Everything oozed class. Prices are not out of this world. Food is exquisite. Only disappointment was that considering the high class of the food, they had finished the roast potatoes and options were mashed or chips. Tables are also well spaced giving room for private conversations and a good stretch of the legs.... More

We were blocked from our first choice in stunning Mdina but this place looks amazing. it's just off a side street as you enter the Main Gate and the inside is amazing. Unfortunately, they took us up to the balcony which i swalled off by shrubbery and doesn't provide much of a view of anything. The Service was horrendous for... More

An experience not to be missed while on holiday in Malta. Exceptional cuisine, genuine service and the most extensive wine list, all make this restaurant fully deserving of its status and rating in Malta.
