Not quite the food that we were hoping for. Extremely good bread and a great wine list. Joseph the head waiter was extremely pleasant. A stunning view on the ramparts of Medina.

Eating perfectly cooked food, outside, watching fireworks, with a great bottle of wine and the one you love, life does not get better than this.

Yes it is a bit on the expensive side but then settings like this must be paid for and I thought it was worth every penny.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The chefs were all excellent and we ate all four courses no problem.

If you like quality food and wine, plus outstanding views this is most definitely the best restaurant to dine in Malta.

The food is just superb. I go out to eat often but I never tasted a meal so good. Congratulations to the staff for making our stay just amazing.

The foie gras starter is really good! So were the other dishes we tried.
Service is very helpful and efficient as well.
Great view on Malta island.

On the cons side: maybe they should be on the same level of information regarding the wines, since the manager and the sommelier had completely different advices regarding wines.
Service may be a little less professional than in other restaurant of the same category.

First time visit to this restaurant in Mdina. The view from the terrace is probably one of the best in the city. Today was so windy that we had to sit inside. Food was good, but service very slow. Had to ask for the wine list 2 time before it appeared. Expensive wine list. Difficult to fine a good wine below 40 euros. Food was perfectly presented, but some of the combinations was a bit weirded for my taste.
