Very nice place in the heart of Birgu. Good platters and a variety choice of wine. Reasonable prices.

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.

This was a real experience. The place is very nicely and artistically done up - none of your usual run-of-the-mill semi-poshy or 'family restaurant' crap. All the paintings on the wall are genuine and on sale. It is a real art gallery, and you can enjoy the very creative pieces while you eat, even if you don't buy them -... More

Went there with my other half and a few friends. As soon as we entered the place, I was immediately impressed with the decor. The walls are full of paintings and the building is typical old Maltese. Loved the atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Menu had a few interesting items. Portions were very large and the taste... More

Everything about this place makes me excited to re-visit! The owner is a brilliant artist, as well as a great chef. The wine bar is located within an old property at Vittoriosa. Just walking round the streets of this small fortified city is an adventure in itself. Once stumbling upon this place, prepare to be mesmerised. The owner's works of... More
