“Great food, great view, but be patient for the service ”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Excellent view on Malta from this restaurant in Mdina. The food qualitu won't disappoint you and the waiters are nice. However, the place is very busy and service is slow. So if you are not in a hurry for a quick bite, pass by and enjoy.

“Came for the view...stayed for the cake.”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Looking at the view from the walls of the beautiful old city of Mdina. Came across Fontanella with its terrace with spectacular panoramas of Malta. Had a huge piece of chocolate cake (one of the best I've ever had!). A must when visiting Mdina.
Tip: if your are a coming as a larger group it would be best to book as it gets really busy!

“Great food and views”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

You must try the cakes they are to die for. Have a very relaxed lunch and enjoy the view out over the island, see if you can spot the dome at Mosta.

“Great Cakes, Coffee and Views!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

What a great place, well worth the visit, go in the morning for a break from the sightseeing. The cakes are lovely (homemade) and the views are fantastic!

“Great views, no service”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Came here and got a table on the wall. Great views from Mdina. After 30 minutes I was still not offered service. So having enjoyed the view and taken many pictures, I left. Thank you for the great views at no charge.
