This is a great location on the corner of Piazza Regina. We arrived for a late lunch snack and although busy, were able to sit outside enjoying the last of the afternoon sun.

We sat and waited and waited whilst 4 waiters stood around chatting and looking in all directions but that of the customers! No menus on the table, so giving up on trying to catch their eye, my husband went and got one from the "work station" right next to the chatting waiters! He brought it back and unfortunately it was... More

I stopped by this restaurant in Valletta for dinner, I took the Spaghetti Bolognese it was ok but I've eat better @ better restaurants. If you come to Valletta come for a drinks instead of the food

Ice cream, coffee, super interior, great outside tables on a piazza on the main street, pastizzi, you can see why it's a Valletta institution.

Not sure what the fuss is about. Right alongside is an identical cafe serving identical food not forgetting the hundreds more about in town.

Very very busy caffe. Number of waiters and waitresses are crazy! Very friendly service and quick as well. Pastizzi get sold out very quickly. Once is finished, no more for the day. It is a very classic restaurant with elegant decoration. Reasonable priced as well. It is worth to give a try.

Oldest cafe in Valletta with ample tables outside but the real star is inside. Beautiful decor and you can feast your eyes on the lovely patisseries before choosing one or two. They are delicious!! Well worth a visit as it is part of the old Maltese.
