Awazing food and service

We've been at Il- Mithna for my boyfriend's birthday. The place is warm and the management is very nice and helpful. Food is lovely and very well cooked. Price is little more expensive than the normal, but worth all the money we paid. For sure to go again. Thumbs up

I think the best to describe this place is "get what you pay for". Yes, it is pricy. Yes, maybe a bit posh. And yes, it is well worth it. I've visited the restaurant 3 years ago as well, and I went back again. It was great. I'm not going to spoil it to anybody, but the place's atmosphere is... More

My wife and I were going to Popeye Village for the day. So I searched for a high rated restaurant in Mellieha, and I'm Mithna came up. We were not disappointed. The restaurant owner was at the door to greet us, as we arrived about 3p minutes before it opened for business. He showed us around. The place was an... More

I was treated to a fabulous birthday dinner at Mithna, which I heard before is under new management. Being quite health concious my partner and I opted for lighter starter portions and main course. A complimentary bread basket and muse-bouche were given consisting of smoked duck breast with strawberries. Venison carpaccio, mixed seafood platter to share (consisting of mussels in... More

We were very disappointed, we have been here twice before in March 15, and could not rave about it enough, so when in Malta this Dec with the family for a big birthday , we did not hesitate to book for the 8 of us to go to Il Mithna, we chose the set menu because it had been amazing... More

This place looked great but the food was average. Pretentious staff and very expensive for what I received. Wouldn't go back as their is far better in the area without breaking the budget. The cafe's in the area give more without having to try. Disappointing

We have been a few times before, notably last Christmas Day when we enjoyed the set English Christmas lunch which was very enjoyable. Hence we decided to go back for Christmas Day 2015. What a difference! Don't get me wrong, last year was very good, but this was divine! When we complimented the staff we found out that the kitchen... More

We have been to this restaurant several times, and every time, we were very well-cared for and presented with excellent food. The ambience is gorgeous; it is partly a traditional, rustic Maltese windmill, with a chic twist. The interior is softly lit, with gentle background music. Everything is beautifully decorated, and this place offers a taste of Maltese history and... More
