This is one of the best places in Malta to have some ice cream. I've stopped by the Caffe on previous visits to Malta and always enjoyed stopping by to have a ice cream sometimes after my dinner. This is also a friendly place for children.

Always staying at the Hilton Malta, Caffe Portomaso is a one minute walk away, where we regularly go for lunch. Varied menu with something for every taste. 3 or 4 large TV screens showing local stations and Sky News on different monitors. Staff are friendly and welcoming, especially if you are a regular. Reasonable prices for large portions and well... More

Nice coffee and great for quick lunches. They have an easy typical menu with salads, sandwiches and pizzas. Plus additionally every day they have special. Nothing too amazing but works for lunch.

A great place for lunch and certainly cheaper than anything in the marina or Hilton. The pizzas are good too and the small ones are pretty big!

We had a coffee and cake here one afternoon. It wasn't very busy but does come alive in the evening. The cake was very nice and staff were pleasant.

Caffe` Portomaso is the oldest outlet of the Marina Restaurants fleet and has been operating successfully since 2003. It is situated below the Portomaso Business Tower (adjacent to the Hilton Hotel) and is a great place for shoppers, sightseers and the business community for a quick drink or a bite to eat. Caffe` Portomaso, like all the other outlets, has both inside and outside seating. The outside terrace is set up with outdoor wicker furniture where canopies are opened in order to shelter guests from the strong rays of the sun in the summer months and the rain in the winter months. Caffe` Portomaso has got an inside seating capacity of approximately eighty covers and an outside seating capacity of forty covers. The inside is designed to give a warm and 'homey' feeling, where many choose to make the coffee shop their spot to have a cup of coffee and read the newspaper in the morning.
