Ended at Grapes purely by coincidence. Not such a good choice. I am giving 2 stars because the service really seems honest and the effort is a genuine one but the food is definitely not a nice experience at all. They seem to cook everything using this bolognese sauce which they seem to put on everything. We had lasagna which... More

We are here as part of an organised tour. Due to the numbers we were sat upstairs at a long table, which was ok, if a little squashed. Limited choice to eat, but the soup was nice and clearly home made. Chicken for main course was very tender and tasty, with ice cream in a little metal bowl for desert.... More

We ate here as part of a tour around Mdina, Rabat and Mosta. Sometimes , when you are part of a big group, the food is a let down, but not here. The starter, a vegetable soup was delicious, as a main, we had a beef olive dish and a chicken dish, both excellent. Homemade wine or water was plentiful... More

We decided to come here for lunch. The food is very good and prices are reasonable. We were served very fast but the waitresses can improve. Regarding atmosphere, it's missing in this restaurant.

We had lunch here on a visit to the Museum and catacombs and really enjoyed the food and service. Even though the restaurant was busy the staff had food on the table and plates cleared very quickly. The food was good for the price and we will return next time we are in Rabat.

We ordered pizza and it was eatable. Prices are average but not the cheapest The atmosphere is lacking. The only plus I could find is the service. The waitress was really courteous but not intrusive. I would recommend this restaurant for a snack only.

Me and my friend had not only a terrible taste from this Grapes Restaurant, but the service was as awfull as the soup, the meat and else. Salt was the name of the game: every dish had the same disgusting taste, and the service was just inexistant. The price was even not the one written outside the place and we... More

I am Maltese and I was to the Grapes Restaurant. The traditional matese vegetable soup was nothing close to traditional, it was full of flour and tasteless. We had some of it and left it there and was hoping the second plate will be somehow better. I took a cheese salad and my boyfriend penne bolognese. I asked what type... More

Do not go here if you want any kind of food or service, it is quite possibly the worst place we have ever had the misfortune to eat in! The locals are more interested in bellowing across at each other than considering any patrons and the food.................. well short of wanting to throw up the few consumed mouthfuls, flour features...
