Great location and friendly service. We had the Maltese platter for lunch which was a huge portion for 2 people and great value for money. I'd definitely recommend it if you're having a day trip in Mdina!

Great variety if wines and the food, especially the platters were really good and reasonably priced considering the location; in the heart of the old capital city of Malta, Mdina... Will surely visit again!
