Diar il-Bniet is a Maltese Agri-Tourism experience based around a Farm Shop and A Farm Kitchen in Dingli. Fresh produce from the family run farm in a valley 200 metres away is used to make the delicious fresh fruit, jams, wine and oils you can buy in the farm shop. Alternatively the traditional cuisine served in the kitchen uses the farm's produce, ensuring that the ingredients are fresh and the recipes are the same ones that have been passed down through generations. It is an exhibition of Maltese gastronomy in a traditional and rustic family setting. We want our customers to truly understand that Diar il-Bniet is a place where taste meets tradition.

Without a doubt, it is worth taking the bus from Mdina/Rabat for this restaurant! It is homemade, freshly and traditionally cooked with seasonal veggies. It is a must!

If you want to taste our good traditional food this place is a must. You could see whatever you order being cooked. My memories went back to my dear Mum's delicious cooking. We recomand it to locals and tourists visiting the Island.

A typical Maltese restaurant with a difference. The menu have a wide selection of Maltese dishes and I can guarantee that the presentation and food preparation are very similar to what our parents prepare back home. Well done and I highly recommend this Maltese restaurant...More

Delicious traditional food with adequate portions (for those who like to eat, try the lamb). The staff were very hospitable and friendly. Restaurant with great ambient in a quiet area. Prices are a bit high.
