This is a combination of bar, restaurant and wineshop, hidden away down a passage, with lots of atmosphere and friendly staff. We ate there only once but ordered local specialities involving 'pastry' - but forget a la croute! This is much more like bread, and comes in loaf-sized portions stuffed tastily with pork or vegetables etc. One quarter of the... More

Arrived late in Birgu and wanted to try some local food and wine. Our hosts recommended we try Del Borgo. The staff were friendly and happy to give us plenty of info about the Maltese specialities. If you're not extremely hungry, one of their mixed plates may be an excellent choice. If you're intro red wine, try Nexus.

We ate here last week whilst staying in Cospicua. The meal was very good and the service was helpful and friendly. The wine is a bit expensive compared to other restaurants in the area, however, the wine list is extensive and of good quality. The food was very good and included, beef carpaccio and prawn starters followed by an excellent... More

Just returned from an evening meal at this restaurant. Service was very slow and generally poor. We had to constantly call waiters to get drinks refills. Our starter plates sat empty in front of us for almost half an hour. It was 2 hours after being seated that we finally got our main course. When we complained, we were told... More

Though indoors, it's a very nicely done up place with loads to drink & buy. As we were not so impressed with the menu (more snacks with some wine sampling) & there are good restaurants all around, we only tried various wines which were all great, at a reasonable price & well chilled. The latter is often not the case... More

I have been to Del Borgo several times over a number of years. The dishes, ambience and service have never failed. A good place to enjoy good food and wine with friends or family, especially those visiting from abroad.

We went as 2 couples, as this looked a really nice place. The evening started off really well - nice atmosphere, attentive waiter and what looked a promising evening. Then the menu came, although quite limited, it looked very nice. Went to order the meals - shock - no pasta available. When asked why, the reason was that their boiler... More

Been several time with a dear friend.. one of our preferred place for a light evening meal and good wine. We love the place more than the food but for something light, they have a good selections... platters to share. A place to catch up with friends and the music is toned down enough for people to be able to... More
