Less than expected

We had to clean the wine glasses provided with napkins because they were not clear and clean. the antipasto was delicious. The beef olives (Bragjoli) were not served properly heated. Probably they mistook the time for them to heat properly. In fact for the next two days we could still feel the... read more

walking around the small street in Birgu , we found by chance this pretty wine bar and we decided to try .... The place is really original , surrounded by stones and vaults under the street level : perfect to create the atmosphere and the character of a wine bar .. The list of wines it's really interesting and well... More

We went there with friends, to have a dinner and some wine. The prices are really high, but I need say, that we tried 3 different pasta plates and everthing was delicious. It is very good but you will be still hungry after one plate because they are ridiculously small. After the dinner we ordered the desser (tiramisu) and coffee.... More

It was a very late Saturday night and we decided to go the Birgu by Candle light. By the time we got there, our stomach starting giving an indication that it needed a refill! Or it could be that we decided that we are hungry once we saw the Del Borgo sign since this has been a place we have... More

We visited this wine bar with friends of ours. The staff especially Andre were very nice and friendly. We were not very hungry so we shared platters and some good white wine and then finished our meal with a good red wine. Nice and good wine bar in the heart of Vittoriosa. Will be re visiting this wine bar very... More

apart from our starters which were good, the main courses were very poor, 2 were almost cold and the steak very tough. Main courses were not delivered together - infact it took about 30 mins to deliver the 5 main courses to our table. Also ran out of the wine we liked and the best alternative was a little acidic.

While the atmosphere is great and service is fantastic, the food took a down turn. We had the pork chops and they were over cooked and tough. Visited a second time and took the same and food was bad again. Wine selection is great and caters for everyone whether you are on a budget or going all out. But personally... More

Unfortunately it happens almost everywhere. First a place is so good and you go again and again and recommend it to people. Than when a place gets the fame needed bang it starts going down hill. This place was one of my favorites (atmosphere still is) but the portions are getting ridiculous and the service is poor. We always choose... More

Food is exquisite. Atmo and service enhance it... Price may be a bit on the high side, but still relatively reasonable noting that portions are usually generous. Price for a one-course meal (pasta and pastry) for 2 with drinks is about €25.

I dined a couple of times at this restaurant and my experience was not always the same. I find this restaurant /wine bar to be the best place to go during a weekday to get the best out of the service. This is something which I find common in all the restaurants. Nevertheless Del Borgo provides a better place than... More
