This was my first visit to Malta. As such my expectations were tainted with reminiscences of family friends and work colleagues, all of whom had enjoyed the delights of the island. Without doubt, they were right. The influences of centuries of colonization are obvious, not least the remaining touch of Imperial Britain. Caffe Cordina, located about half way down Republic...

The food and service was great but it's important to note that during the summer months you have to get a seat directly beside a fan as it's too hot to enjoy the food otherwise.

Title says it all really! A restaurant with a well deserved reputation, we were well looked after and had a very pleasant relaxing cake and drink. Take a look inside at the cake selection, there just isn't enough time to try them all!!!

Only stopped here to have a drink, but the service was prompt. It was a nice place to have a drink and people watch for half an hour in a nice setting.

For sure Cafe Cordina is one of the oldest Cafe's in Valletta which is still going strong ,generation after another one. The place there has it's own characteristics especially inside,with those paintings and decorated ceilings. The outside is nice as well where you can also have a nice breakfast or lunch in the shade of the sun.From Cafe Cordina you... More

Great old historic cafe. You should watch the ceiling of cordina. You can see nice white historical ceiling. I recommend you to go in the weekday morning. I could enjoy the atmosphere of local worker's morning scene. Nice old man staff will serve espresso and pastizzi for you.

We have had lunch here once and breakfast twice, and tried a second time for lunch with no luck. The first lunch was very good, the Maltese platter, it can be highly recommended. The service was also very good and quick, and the waitress very nice. Second time we had continental breakfast, the croissants were gone and only toast available.... More
