Also we ordered two different... More

I have never complained on this group before, as i understand that everyone has a bad day. However, yesterday i think was one of the worst wine bar I ever experienced. We were a group of around 15 people and had a booking at Il-Forn Art Gallery and Wine Bar, Birgu at about 8.30pm. To start off with, our table... More

Restaurant and its setting is picturesque enough (though a bit hard to find) with art gallery where art pieces on the wall were available to sell. Some in the party found one or two of these paintings inappropriate. Definitely not for kids or the prudish. The service was poor, slow and basically inept. Had to share one menu between the...

Shame on the service attenders noooo idea where manners are very rude, asking for something and shouts back to you. Food is good only for lemon lovers, for people suffering with lactose intolerant avoid the place the menu is not good. Not to the missed the dirty floor. Horrible experience in such a lovely place in the heart of Birgu.

Had a relaxing, chilled night out with friends - enjoyed delicious food, served by friendly and efficient staff. The modern art which surrounded us in the courtyard was a conversation piece throughout most of the night. An enjoyable experience all around.

Il-forn wine bar and art gallery has been a usual go to place since 5 years ago and we always were satisfied in many ways like the variety of food to choose from, the goodness of the food itself and the staff were always helpful. However when the restaurant gets busy and the order seems to take a bit longer... More

On the occasion of the fantastic Birgu Feast we visited il-Forn for dinner. The place was packed and luckily we did a booking. The food was amazing and everything in XXL size. The friendly service, drinks and the warm atmosphere leave unforgettable impressions to us. For sure, we’ll go again.
