Calm atmosphere, polite service and very nice food. Specially the chicken caesar salad which was copious indeed, and the beef tataki was a big hit. Without forgetting, my iced coffee rounded it all up, good. Thank you for making our day 😊

Lovely courtyard with angel lights above your head. Mussels to start were fresh and tasty. Ricotta ravioli was delicious, home made and cooked perfectly. We also had the market fish which happened to be sea bass. It was served whole, and cooked like a dream....More

Stay away here! Really,a tourist trap. We ate here with my family and kids. The vegetarian burgers were disgusting. Also the grilled chicken was not good. The sauce had no taste. Not value for your money at all!

Very average food, waiters not over friendly. Food took over an hour to come and we had a 1 year old with us. Sea bass was ok although my husbands shrimp risotto was like a black puddle with no shrimp!! Wouldn’t visit again

Nice looking decor but it can be one of those tourist traps. Burger - they don’t ask how you’d like the burger to be cooked - is overdone, fries were fine, chicken was good but the sautéed potatoes not, rabbit was ok but nothing special....More

On a daytrip to Mdina we stumbled upon this delightful restaurant. The setting is beautiful, the staff very attentive and the food (particularly the salads) delicious. It helped I suppose that the sun was shining. I can't think how our experience could have been any...More

Found this restaurant during my day trip to Mdina and we had the nicest breakfast in ages here! Coffee and waffles made for a delicious treat: staff were friendly and prices were great: wish I would have eaten here everyday during my stay in Malta!

We had an Easter Lunch booking. I booked the vegan menu which on paper sounded really nice and mouthwatering. I have Cauliflower and Hazelnut soup which was too watery yet not bad. The main course was not all that impressive: A pumpkin and sweet potato...More

We visited as a family with two young children for lunch. Set around a beautiful courtyard, 5mins from Mdina main gate, it is a truly stunning venue. Service was friendly and attentive, and food very good value and stunning:
