“A great place to enjoy good wines and great platters”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We have been coming to Malta now for over 7 years and have never found or dined at anywhere quite like Tomabinina’s in Mgarr, which only opened 18 months ago. It truly is a jewel in the crown of both Mgarr and Malta in terms of a quality wine bar with a light dining experience. Its reasonably priced too.
From the time we arrived the owner made us feel very welcome and throughout our evening he checked that we were completely satisfied with both the food and wine we had ordered. They only serve a limited number of light tapas type platter meals, but the cold meat and local cheese platter selection which we ordered was wonderful. The quality cold meats and lovely local cheeses arrived with local bread and crackers, local Maltese honey and olive oil, walnuts grapes and apple. It complemented the beautiful Rioja wine we order perfectly.
I cannot recommend this establishment enough, and we will certainly be going back again before we go home, and again next year.

“Rustic retreat”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We visited this bar as our friends frequently come here.We were amazed.The owners are very friendly and welcoming.The decor is typically "rustic Malta." Bags of character.Lovely background music being played .It is in a great setting so we sat outside to enjoy appreciate the quaint surroundings.We had some very good wines and were given Maltese nibbles free of charge but there are huge platters on offer too! Great place to relax,unwind and be able to talk to your fellow guests without being disturbed by loud music and tourists! True Maltese experience.We will return!
