Nice place to sit and drink

We didn't eat here, but it was a very pleasant place to sit and relax. Staff were friendly and the menu had plenty of interesting things in it.

Excellent location, but that is more, or less about it. Otherwise it is an average tourist cafe, nothing more, nothing less.

The pavement part of this cafe is great but the real treat is when you step inside this fabulous building it's just gorgeous, so opulent and you are transported back in time. The selection of cakes, Maltese delicacies, ice cream treats and selection of drinks are first class. The cakes are delicious , so much choice.

We generally like the food and atmosphere of this restaurant, and the chocolate croissants it used to serve were really delicious, but recently they've changed the recipe. The taste of the 'new' chocolate croissants is greasy and buttery, and in my opinion, entirely unpalatable. It's disappointing because if something ain't broke, why fix it?

We popped in here for a coffee after an hours bus ride from Buggibba. The café was busy but there was no one to seat you so you had to find your own table which meant the staff didn't know who was seated or not. The coffees and cake was standard fare but the biggest bugbear was paying. The waitress... More

Lovely cafe in the main square, I sat outside where you can choose to sit in the sun or under the shade of an umbrella. Service was slower than I would have expected, but it was a Saturday afternoon and was very busy. I had a chicken salad and certainly got a big salad with 3 pieces of chicken breast... More

I visited with three friends, we had lunch which was served quickly and efficiently by our waiter! I could not resist the urge to have one of their wonderful cakes. I chose. Rhum Ba Ba which was a real treat, and so delicious!

The café is in the main square around half way down Republic Street, the inside is beautifully decorated but the food and drink is overpriced and is of poor quality. The location snares the majority of tourists.

This is a lovely cafe with a great outdoor area. Staff were quick to serve us, and the outside area had huge fans to keep everyone cool. Food looked amazing.

Good pastries and coffee. A landmark cafe on the main square. More expensive than most places but worth checking out. Beautiful interior. Rear standing bar is great for a quick expresso. Pay first than take receipt to rear bar for service or else get a table for inside or out for full service.
