This cafe was recommended by a friend and the decor and range of cakes are excellent with good savory snacks and meals available. Can sit inside in the highly decorated historic building, or outside in the square. Air conditioning inside wasn't very good, and an annoying halogen light on the stairs kept switching on and off. Staff attentive but appeared... More

Valletta is a busy and bustling place and this establishment has been soothing furrowed brows of travellers and locals for decades. Right in the main square with plenty of outdoor seating, but first you need to go into the store and ogle the huge inventory of cakes - a visual delight. Then order a cake and a coffee and while...

Good food but staff awful. Made me feel as though it was my fault she had to turn up to work. Long time to get served and was the only one at ice cream bar

If you visit Valletta cafe cordina is a must to visit. Good coffee and unbelievable food not to mention the picturesque surroundings. A trip to valletta would be a disappointment without a visit. First class service from the very friendly staff just make sure you visit inside.

Caffe Cordina serves some nice fresh cakes and the coffee is ok. The frustrating thing is that, in the three times we visited, the staff were constantly banging things around. They have these metal containers on the table for sugar and at least half a dozen times these were dropped which caused a huge banging noise. The staff just need... More

This café is charming and full of character. We had large and delicious salads. Excellent coffee and shared a lovely pastry. For somewhere that is so famous, prices are still very reasonable as compared to an equivalent London establishment. A "must go to"!

No visit to Valletta, Malta would be complete without a visit to Cafe Cordina, in the heart of the city. We have been going there since 1992 and wouldn't miss it. Sitting out under the umbrellas ( to protect you from the sun) served with coffee and cakes you can just sit back and watch the world go by. And,... More

Been here twice for ice cream. It's good but a bit pricey. A tip for the hot months - buy the ice cream in plastic cups as it melts quickly.
