I chose to have lunch on the roof top but I was not warned that it was windy. Things kept flying about but the view was magnificent. I was told that I could eat inside and after a time I took up the effort. I had some of their Ravioli as a main course. I was told that there would... More

Small menu focusing on local food, in good parts home grown/made ingredients. You must try the rabbit! Unfortunately we were too late for trying the goat, maybe another time...

We only called for a drink and a snack but we're made to feel very welcome. You must try the terrace for the view and atmosphere.

Home made pasta and wine straight up from there on winery in the cellar, mmmmmm and a small roof terrace if you want to eat outside and view the Citadel and a lovely lady downstairs all the way originally from East Kilbride in Scotland...

We had lunch in this restaurant. The choice of dishes is not large, but everything is traditional and mostly made locally. We had goat and pasta with rabbit sauce. And of course their goat cheese. The bread was sooo tasty. We had the house wine and it was very pleasant.

My husband and I dined at Ta' Rikardu on the rooftop overlooking the old city, the food was delicious and fresh, it was such a relaxing atmosphere.

Following advice, we climbed the spiral staircase up to the roof terrace, and enjoyed spectacular views over the cathedral, and ordered the local cheese platter, which was delicious and reasonably priced.

This is a great restaurant if you want a taste of the local culture. It's also in the heart of the citadel and has tables on the roof if you want to be outside. The service was really efficient and the food fresh. We had a traditional local platter and the rabbit with potatoes and both were delicious.

Thank Cols1985
