“Maltese Platter at it's best”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

A great small select cafe for the mid-day snack or in our case that Maltese Platter, and the host ensured that there was an equal amount of vegetarian options as meat clearly seperated for my veggie wife.

Close to the Malta experience well worth a meal/snack as well as a visit to the Malta Experience, but don't get it mixed up with the cafe in the Experience.

“Nice quiet place for some wine and snacks”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

This is a nice wine bar situated int heart of Mdina and tucked away in a small piazza. I ve been to this place a couple of times and always enjoyed the food (platters) and choice of wines. On the last visit however we came out smelling of oil as the kitchen is sperated from the main room by a partition with no ventilation to the outside and hence it was like being in the kitchen assisting the chef! Othernwise its ok, so a word of advice is to stay in the 'kantina' basement and not at street level.

Great service, home-made pasta with ricotta & tom sauce, good hosts. Next door to the "M'dina Experience". Go to the Experience first; I fell asleep after that wonderful lunch :-)

“Friendly and Relaxing fantastic wine !”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

Hiden away in the maze of alleyways of the majestic walled city of Mdina. From the moment myself and partner walked through the door we felt welcomed and hosted so well by owner Pierre. Super local dishes and fabulous wine creating a great afternoon relaxing in the sun.
Thank you

“Superb Service”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

Stopped off here yesterday afternoon with an equally tired and thirsty friend who has several food intollerancies. They smiled sweetly and concocted a meal that not only catered for my friend's inability to eat nuts, tomatoes or dairy but also tasted great. My chicken wrap was tasty and excellent value at 7.5 Euros. Much recommended

The photos on the walls were taken by the owner, are well worth a few minutes..
