This cafe is part of he waterfront hotel. The food here is amazing, and very reasonably priced. We stayed at the waterfront for a week and eat at this cafe every night for dinner and a few times for lunch. The food tastes freshly prepared and the portions are generous. On top of this there is a very relaxed atmosphere... More

The cafe is part of the Waterfront Hotel. Since coming to Malta I've been several times - for snacks, lunch and dinner. For a small cafe, the menu is extensive. The food is fresh and, I believe, made on the premises. Whatever I have ordered, I have been pleasantly surprised e.g. a pie was twice the size I anticipated and... More

We ordered to pizzas and in our opinion was that the pizzas tastes dry and floury. Maybe the other foods are still good who knows?

Burgers were good, salads were interesting, coffee and desserts nice, and the service friendly. Good to be able to read the papers while waiting. Fairly expensive for a cafe s it is attached to the hotel but overall pleasant and relaxed.

We have eaten here several times and also had coffee and cake. Food is cooked fresh and obviously the is a 25 minute wait but well worth it. staff wonderful and it is clean and not expensive. Do not have any problems recommending.

Been here a few times. Service is good and friendly, portions big but good. Ordered chicken pie which was surprisingly really tasty. Surprising because pies from restaurants are usually just ok. This one tasted fresh and made in the house. Place looks clean and a/c works well. Coffee was good too. Nothing fancy but good quality at good price.

We ate in the Star Cafe on two occasions during our week long stay in Malta. The Cafe is part of the Waterfront Hotel and you can order from their Cafe menu (wraps, sandwiches etc) or from the Basilico restaurant menu. The Cafe also offers a wide range of cakes. We can recommend the pizza and toasted sandwiches.

Last Saturday my friend and I had the fortune to be refused by 3 restaurants since it was Valentine and ended up in this lovely Cafe. The food was excellent and we even had the luxury to choose from both the menu of the Bistro which is located on the upper floor as well as from the menu of the... More
