Massive disappointment Barely adequate wine list and for a summer outdoor area place quite a poor Beer selection Platters are a robbery- if I wanted greens , crackers or bread I would have ordered them and not a cheese and meat ones.

Wine bar is so close to the church. Good service !! You will meet lots of local people. Out door seating available. Very cozy and fresh in the summer. We visited this place many time due to excellent service.

Food is fresh and of high quality. Restaurant offers simple menu with some typical maltese dishes. Great variety of wines. We orderded a plate of different flavours, like local cheese, meats, olives etc. It was perfect. We visited 6 different restaurants in Malta and these was the best.

Winebar near Corinthia Palace Spa hotel and Melita gardens. Don't expect very good food, these are more like side dishes besides the wine.

We didn't like the first bottle of Maltese white which we tried, but there was no fuss about choosing another & we were happy! Booking recommended, as we were the only on-spec... More
