Lots to love about this place

I stopped in for a late breakfast and saw the plain omelette for $1.90 (comes with salad and bread). So I added Maltese Sausage and goat cheese to the omelette and ordered a pot of coffee. The whole meal was under $4.40. Amazing. I did not realize the omelette would come on local ftira bread... read more

I went there a couple of months ago and I thoroughly enjoyed the place. It is a small cafe but wonderfully decorated as you would image a small cafe in Valletta to be. Moreover, the food had good value. Only con is I often go and find it closed, I don't know what the opening times are exactly

If you find your self in valletta with only a couple coins this is the place to go. Reno serves big sandwiches from 2eur to 5eur. Portions are huge and will keep you going. I failed to find any bad points.

Small, back-alley restaurant with narrow passage to sit but popular with local, Maltese office workers etc during lunch hours -not just tourists so I preferred to go slightly out of hours to get served quicker. Have to be patient when busy here. Toilet on top floor is quite a climb.

a very nice family-run business where you can enjoy a good honest meal for a few euros. We really enjoyed the fish & chips.
