We visited the restaurant with our two daughters and after having had dinner we ordered two cappuccinos. The waiter delivered and then dropped his tray on the table, spreading the hot coffee on my daughter and myself, making a big mess on our clothes, tablet and mobile. The manager was not only very arrogant but also had the face to... More

Quick business lunch in pleasant garden surroundings. No hassle in changing some items from the menu to meet our requirements. Easy committed service and very reasonable prices. We were certainly satisfied customers.

It's a tradition that on special occasions together with family members to go out for lunch at different places. Here at Melita Gardens the place was full, but not over crowded with enough space between tables, food was good although the choice can be wider. But overall it was a nice experience.

Shares a wall with San Anton Gardens and benefits from the very old trees in the public garden next do. Located in a tiny pedestrianised road. Easy walking distance from the Corinthia. The place was nearly full on a Monday so it pays to go early. The service was prompt and food was decent.

A friend organised a get together, with finger foods and drinks. We were given a choice from menus, and we picked menu B. The finger food was disgusting - the meat in the mini burgers was chewy, cheap with hard things in it, and all the rest of the food was just awful. It was also very overpriced. Avoid this... More

Always was satisfied with this place, although service needs some more professional staff, but on the whole a nice experience in this garden for a dip of something delicious this cafeteria has to offer. Its pet friendly and various items on the menu to choose from. I love mostly the wine bar situated next door which offers a complete relaxation... More

A nice place to stop for a quick break or coffee; this is a restaurant and coffee shop in a garden atmosphere; it is pet friendly . One thing I have to criticize , since the place is a garden style many take advantage of smoking while other clients next to them are having lunch; I would like to point... More

Great experience. We love this restaurant. You can either choose to sit in a classy / fancy restaurant, or in a casual area or outside seating near their garden. There is a small play area for the kids to play and the parents can still watch over them from their table. Their menu is reasonable and good. The food depends,... More
