The interiour design is plush and has been for many years. It's unlikely you'll find a cafe as impressive. The artworks and gold work are beautiful. However, it is extremely busy, extremely overpriced, and extremely noisy... and the toilets are difficult to access and often one needs to queue-so plan your comfort break in advance! Access to the toilet is... More

Great setting in the middle of Valetta and one of Europe's classiest cafes. Tip: eat inside! The interior is beautiful, outside you'll be hounded by pigeons. Overall, the service is a little slow but it is Malta and not London or New York. The chocolate cake was the absolutely the best I've ever had.

Of you want quick service .... Go elsewhere, this is a place for people watching, all those miserable people off the cruise ships rushing about. Take the time to sit back, relax, order coffee and cake and soak in the atmosphere. After all this is Malta, not London, we do things slowly here !

I come from Greece, and I live for the past few months in Malta. It happened to visit the cafe cordina twice. The first time for an ice cream that was below average and once more for a drink. We asked for an Ice coffee and a juice. They served the ice coffee in a small (very small) wine glass,... More

Everyone goes here!!! Very busy at all times and we must thank our waitress Janis, who cleared the table and whisked us off inside in about 30 seconds when the father and mother of all thunderstorms broke out on Sunday lunchtime. Wonderful pastries and ice-creams, also great coffee.

On a one day visit to Malta from our cruise ship we were in neeed of some refreshment and decided to try the Cordina. It has a large outdoor seating area - too large really. We ordered two ham & cheese salads and two fresh fruit juices. The salads eventually arrived, but they were cheese salads and not ham and... More

We sat outside in the square in the sun under a parasol and had a relaxing time, not too many people early morning. Good service and the Fruit Cup was looking great and tasted great.

We had ice cream from here a few times and say and ate "al fresco" in the courtyard / seating in the square. Nice place. Staff were a bit busy / flustered / slow but we were on holiday and it was nice to people-watch...

We sat outside which was very busy. Staff are over worked they should hire more and a better system in place. It was a bit of wait for drinks and food which we didn't mind because it was a lovely day. Ordered a smoothie which came warm, food was nice and good value for money.
