About
Perched on top of Madliena, surrounded by lush greenery and commanding excellent north-western coastal views, Madliena Lodge is truly one of a kind. Keeping the 18th-century architecture and more so amplifying the features which are nowadays pretty scarce on our island was imperative. These features include our two stone original fireplaces and our breath-taking inner courtyard (which boasts original 150-year-old tiles).

This restaurant is probably better than the sum of its parts, and all the parts were pretty good. The food was good, the service was good, location was excellent and the price not excessive. The menu is designed to encourage you to read all the...ingredients not just the main ingredient.More

As far as I’m concerned, the outside lounge area adjacent to the restaurant is more a bar area where they serve drinks and cocktails and light snacks.
