4 course meal (for 28 people) and wedding reception was perfect, service was excellent. Sandro and staff couldn't do enough for me, even re made a meal that my toddler had slept through so he didn't miss out. It's a beautiful restaurant and it made my day one I will always remember.

Tasty, well presented food but a little expensive if not eating from the early set menu. Cheery, helpful staff. Complimentary tasters were a nice added touch

We were happily surprised with the Maltese restaurants in general, its kitchen and especially its service. Il Mithna is no exception to that. Very warm, friendly welcome. Front terrace is a bit noisy, but luckily much higher than the street you're on. Food excellent, what more to say? Go!

I've visited the restaurant several times before, and even though the prices has always been a little high, the quality of the food justified it. My latest visit, however, tell a different story. The food was plain, tasteless and litterally boring. Not much enthusiasm to see with the staff and the whole atmosphere was screaming from a lack of motivation.... More

We have dined here over the years and the standard of the cuisine just goes on improving. The chef/patron takes a very personal interest in making sure his customers are delighted with the experience and is always happy to explain what they have and how it is prepared. They cater for families in an un-fussy way and there is seating... More

I have been to this place a couple of times and so far they have always managed to exceed my expectations. The waiting staff are warm and welcoming and the food is perfectly presented. Everything is cooked to perfection and thrills all tasting buds. The wine selection is also varied and good. In addition to the above, you get the... More

Nicely presented restaurant. Staff were very professional. Nice tasters presented 'on the house' before our starters. Well cooked, well presented food.

We happened upon Il Mithna by chance, and we really glad we did. The service was top notch, the wine selection superb and really realistically priced and the food was of an exceptional standard, I would really recommend you try this place because we don't think the rating does it justice. It must be good as we are going back... More
