After a day at the beach we decided to explore Mdina a bit along with dinner, having heard of the amazing views there. A couple of places (politely) turned us down which we had expected but here we were welcomed and they found us a table despite being fully booked. Of course with the message that we had to do...

Pleasant surprise. As we came from the beach, we have been politely rejected by other places, but Trattoria took us in on their terrace, with no reservation, under the clear understanding that the table has been reserved for somebody else and we need to clear it before that. Service was nice, polite and professional; food was better then the price... More

Good restaurant inside the quite Mdina walls. Very quiet and comfortable. Nice attention and good food. Just disapointed with drinks that are extremely expensive (4-5€ for a coke or sprinkle water).

If you visit Malta and Mdina you MUST eat pizza here! All their dishes were amazing but the pizza was really delicious. Lovely atmosphere and our waitress was so polite and sweet!

This is a lovely little restaurant where you can sit inside or out on the quiet square. This is part of the Xara Palace, an exclusive hotel. Prices are okay but go here for the ambiance and romance. My favourite place to eat in Malta. Been here 4-5 times and never disappointed.

Been twice, twice impressed! If you're looking for excellent food in one of the quietest 'piazzas' in the Silent City, you've just found it. Food and service are of a high standard. Ideally, in the hot summer months, have your evening meal outside, although the inside dining area is air-conditioned and quite pleasant except for the deep interior where some... More

We decided to sit at the Trattoria 1530 becauswme it was early afternoon and most of the restaurants in the castle were closed. It turned to be the best option and we were lucky to find that amazing place for lunch. The garlic bread was awesome, the meatballs also and we ordered the mushroom rissotto and pesto pasta. Amazing tastes... More

A very nice place to go for a relaxing evening. The food is excellent but it is the staff which make the place. The quality of service here is a rare find in Malta.
