Centrally located

Nice for a quick stop for a morning or afternoon tea/coffee with a quaint decor and old world atmosphere or for a leisurely lunch outside on a summers day.

Good food, although nothing special. But it's just a lovely place to hang out, so we've been there twice. Good service too. I wouldn't make a special trip to come here, but if you're in Valletta it's worth dropping into.

We visited this beautiful, historic cafe after an afternoon of sightseeing. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and the tea and cakes / ice creams were delicious.

Nothing special but still nice. Enjoy coffee and pastizzi in the sunshine. Can buy cheaper elsewhere. But you still have to do cafe cordina ..... For history's sake.

This was an ideal opportunity to pop into the inside caffe which I have always wanted to do having viewed the extraordinary decor from the doorway. I.was immediately ushered to a table and given a menu. What a choice of Maltese Cakes! This would also be a cool refuge from the hot summer sun. Persevere and give it a try.

Possibly the best located restaurant in Valletta if not Malta but a very disappoints choice on the menu, adequate food but the worst service on the island, the only Maltese we found that were just not interested.

Had read about it and comes as a recommend place to visit when in Valetta. Beautiful historic cafe I the heart of Valletta. Seating both outside and inside. Went there twice and say once inside watching the beautiful decor and second time in the open courtyard they occupy. Great for an afternoon tea and lunch. Grilled sandwiches and a range... More

I had such high hopes for this Maltese Institution due to all of the reviews I had read prior to our trip. I ordered a hamburger (the regular burger NOT the angus burger) and asked for it to be well done. Being a health care professional, I am familiar with the dangers of consuming undercooked hamburger. I bit into my... More
