The Undercroft


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

A Unique Experience and a truly unique venue located in the heart of Malta’s Capital – Valletta. The Undercroft matured into a fresh and welcoming Trattoria offering a range of home-made Maltese traditional dishes, lunch, early dinner, afternoon tea, specialty coffees, cakes & pastries, healthy breakfasts and drinks. The delightful setting in the Undercroft of St.Paul’s Pro-Cathedral, a historical Grade 1 building, in the heart of Valletta which was built in 1839 funded by the Dowager Queen Adelaide.

This cafe is in the lower floor of the cathedral- renovated to a high standard and is surprisingly modern, light and bright. Efficient and friendly staff. Good selection of paninni's and snacks, which, whilst not freshly prepared, are great quality.

Unusual setting for a café. Food fabulous. Scottish Staff friendly and would do anything for you. Only down side is that it is half way down a flight of stairs, but well worth a visit due to the ambiance.

This was a really interesting and historic place to eat. It's quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist areas. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. We shared a huge antipasto plate, which was plenty for lunch, and represented very...More
