“Chocolate heaven”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We had thick rich hot chocolate WITH Amareto and a slice of the Orange and chocolate cake which was amazing. The cake was moist and rich and fabulous, the hot chocolate was almost a cake in itself being thick and delicious. We sat at the outer wall upstairs and took in the lovely views. It was a little busy and staff seemed slightly rushed, but we were there between the afternoon and the dinner setting.

By nightfall the lovely lights on the internal courtyard were beautiful.

I would say afternoon tea or an evening snack would be the highlight for eating here

“Good place to stop”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We found this restaurant simply by chance,you can sit upstairs on the terrace with fantastic views over Mdina.It was very busy but we managed to find a table.The service was quick and friendly and the tea and coffee just like home.We orders a piece of cake each,cheesecake and chocolate orange cake,which were enormous for only E2.95,and tasted delicious.This was supposed to be a snack but set us up until our meal at night.There were queues at the toilets which I didnt go to but I would highly recommend this restaurant if you visit Mdina.

“Good food, incredible location”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

One of the best places in Mdina for eating. It is located on the bastions, with the upstairs seating literally being ON the bastions. There is a choice of pizza, sandwiches, salads and... CAKES. Don't miss out trying one of the latter - you won't be disappointed. :)

“Good lunch spot”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Very busy popular restaurant in the old city of Mdina. We shared a nice pizza and had a wonderful view from our terrace table. Service quick and efficient.Pizzas are all around 8 .50 euro and big enough for two people . The only negative is they only have 2 unisex toilets not enough for a busy restaurant like this.
